Proper Dual Diagnosis Treatment is Complicated+
Those who suffer from dual diagnosis are not able to turn to traditional facilities for help. Most drug and alcohol rehab centers are not equipped to handle full-on psychiatric issues. Conversely, those who check into a mental health facility can not like expect to receive proper care for their addiction problems. The dual diagnosis patient requires specialized, integrated care.
Why Specialized Treatment is So Important+
Dual diagnosis patients suffer from a variety of special, challenging symptoms. If these individuals do not receive help from those who know dual diagnosis best, the problems are likely to worsen over time. The reasons for this are several-fold, but most prominent is the fact that mental illness and addiction share many of the same symptoms.
How Foundations Recovery Network Centers Help+
With similar symptoms coming from all directions, and the addiction aggravating the mental illness (and vice versa), it is imperative that the treatment plan is detail and organized. Foundations Recovery Network treatment centers are well known for their meticulous care. Professionals experienced in the area know how to trace which symptoms are coming from what source, and make proper assessments that help treat the patient that much faster.
Finding a Pace That’s Right for the Patient+
When it comes to treating those with a Dual Diagnosis, mental illness is the “wild card” that determines the pace of the program. Those with a mental illness cannot be “confronted” about their addiction issues, and as such the process must move at a slower pace – and one that the patient feels totally comfortable with. Experts in Dual Diagnosis treatment are well-versed in finding the proper rhythm for achieving success.
Patients with Special Needs+
Dual Diagnosis drug and alcohol treatment centers deal with high-risk individuals every day. Those who suffer from coexisting mental and addiction issues are more prone to violence and are more likely to attempt suicide. The staff at these centers must be well-prepared to deal with the unpredictable nature of mental illness – and how much more serious the problem becomes when trying to detoxify that same individual off of illicit substances such as drugs or alcohol.
