There are plenty of studies which point to a link between mental illness and substance abuse. Those who enter an addiction rehab center often suffer from some kind of mental illness like bi-polar disorder or schizophrenia. Mental illness can play a role in causing substance abuse and it can make it very hard to quit.
We understand the connection between drug and alcohol addictions and psychiatric illnesses and are aware that drugs and alcohol can sometimes cover up the presence of a psychiatric illness. They also have the ability to imitate symptoms. Only treating the addiction without concern for the psychiatric illness will not lead to a successful recovery. Because of this, we provide services to help treat both.
If symptoms of psychiatric illnesses and conditions go undiagnosed and untreated, dependency to drugs and alcohol will mostly likely occur again. Our desire is to make sure this doesn’t happen and you are able to move forward with a happy life. Our programs do not just rid you of drugs and alcohol, they provide you will the skills and help you need to continue to stay away from these substances. We also want to set up a treatment plan that accommodates your psychiatric disorders as well.
