Take control of your life. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health 7.9 million people in the U.S. experience both mental disorder and substance uses disorder simultaneously. More than half of those people- 4.1 million are men.
Because many combinations of dual diagnosis can occur, the symptoms vary widely. Enriching Lives use alcohol and drug screening tools to help identify people at risk for drug and alcohol abuse. Symptoms of substance use disorder may include:
Withdrawal from friends and family
Sudden changes in behavior
Using substances under dangerous conditions
Engaging in risky behaviors
Loss of control over use of substances
Developing a high tolerance and withdrawal symptoms
Feeling like you need a drug to be able to function
Symptoms of a mental health condition can also vary greatly. Warnings signs, such as extreme mood changes, confused thinking or problems concentrating, avoiding friends and social activities and thoughts of suicide, may be reason to seek help.
How is Dual Diagnosis Treated?
The best treatment for dual diagnosis is integrated intervention, when a person receives care for both their diagnosed mental illness and substance abuse. The idea that “I cannot treat your depression because you are also drinking” is outdated—current thinking requires both issues be addressed.
Our therapist understand the ways each condition affects the other and how your treatment can be most effective. Treatment planning will not be the same for everyone, but everyone will have the care that can assist them to lead healthy and productive lives.
RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE
On the road to developing personal life transformation lies the importance of incorporating a re-connection to what keeps us well.
Wellness not as the absence of disease, illness, or stress but the presence of purpose in life, active involvement in satisfying work and play, joyful relationships, a healthy body and living environment, and happiness.
Behavioral health is a critical aspect of maintaining physical health and wellness,and the eight dimensions of wellness assist people to better manage the condition and experience overall recovery.
