NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Addiction and mental illness are closely related. According to the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, nearly 8.4 million American adults have a mental illness as well as an addiction. However, these men and women are unlikely to receive treatment. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that around half of all people with both a mental and a substance use disorder will not receive specialized care for either of their disorders. Intervention Drug Rehab Association has successfully raised their rates of recovery through dual diagnosis programs which strategically target both mental illness and addiction, ensuring clients have a better chance of long-term sobriety.
A dual diagnosis occurs in individuals who have both a mental and substance use disorder. The symptoms of mental illness can foment relapse, while the cravings and withdrawal of addiction can exacerbate adverse mental health symptoms. In this way, mental illness and addiction inhabit a complex relationship which can only be addressed by professionals. Intervention Drug Rehab Association is among a cadre of addiction treatment centers that have the resources and training necessary to provide quality dual diagnosis care to every client.
Intervention Drug Rehab Association recognizes and cares for the unique needs of each client. Once admitted to care, clients meet with staff to complete an initial evaluation assessing mental and physical health, family history, and severity of addiction, among other factors. Using this information, staff devise a customized treatment plan to target both the mental illness and the addiction. When one disorder is treated, the symptoms of the second disorder improve, and vice versa. By treating both disorders simultaneously, staff give clients the best chance at lifelong sobriety.
As part of their treatment program, Intervention Drug Rehab Center provides a supervised detoxification process in a clinical setting. Detoxification is necessary to begin the treatment program, as clients must be rid of all toxic substances and clear their minds before dual diagnosis treatment can start. By committing to specialized dual diagnosis treatment based on completely individualized treatment programs, Intervention Drug Rehab Association ensures each client receives the attention they need to secure a lasting recovery.
