When someone is struggling with an addiction, they may not be aware that they are also struggling with a mental health concern. Individuals living with mental health concerns may find that using drugs or alcohol can provide relief from their symptoms. These substances can be an effective tool for covering up and masking emotional concerns, however, they do not help improve your situation. On the contrary, they will likely worsen your symptoms.
The National Survey on Drug Use and Health from 2019 showed that approximately 9.5 million adults in the U.S. are struggling with addiction and other mental health concerns. There are a variety of mental health concerns that we see among individuals who are struggling with an addiction. Some examples would include depression, anxiety, mood disorders, schizophrenia, personality disorders, trauma, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Everyone’s journey to addiction looks different, so it is understandable that the development of your concerns will be unique to you. For example, some individuals know that they struggle with a mental health concern before they develop an addiction, while others are unaware that their struggles are due to a mental health concern. Then there are others who develop mental health concerns after being addicted to substances. While this may resemble the notable “who came first, the chicken or the egg” question, the bottom line is that if you are struggling with both concerns, you need to find a treatment program that can treat both concerns.

Dual diagnosis treatment has been a focus of research for some time. While there are still a variety of questions to be answered, we have learned that your chances of a healthy and sober life increase when you receive treatment for both.
Let’s take a moment to think about someone who struggles with alcohol addiction and depression. It is likely that these two mental health concerns impact each other in one way or another. So if they receive treatment for their addiction alone, they will not gain any new skills to help them manage their depression. As a result, they will continue to struggle with their symptoms, contributing to relapse.
Likewise, if someone is receiving treatment for their mental health concern while they are still drinking or using drugs, the treatment will not be as effective. Our brains function differently when we are in active addiction, impairing our ability to cope with mental health concerns.
The key takeaway from this is that it is imperative that you receive treatment for both concerns at the same time. This allows you to learn skills needed to cope with both struggles, which will help prepare you for future challenges. Additionally, some mental health concerns can be treated with medications that can significantly improve the quality of your life. An accurate assessment and diagnosis can help determine if this approach would be a good fit for you.
Christians Drug Rehab is a dual diagnosis treatment center that provides faith-based addiction treatment in Orange County, California. Our services include detoxification, inpatient rehab treatment, and outpatient treatment. Call (866) 434-1330 to speak with a representative today.
When you arrive at our treatment facility, you will first meet with a member of our medical team for an evaluation. This time will focus on exploring your struggles with drugs and alcohol, physical health, and mental health concerns. This information is then used to develop your unique treatment plan and recommendations for your time with us.
Many of our patients require supervised medical detox. This can last from a few days to a week, depending on your symptoms. During this time, your focus will be on giving your body the time and space it needs to adjust to the changes that occur when you stop using drugs and alcohol.
Once detox is complete, you are then able to proceed into our inpatient rehab program. While you are in our inpatient treatment program, you will have access to treatment for any mental health concerns you are living with. You will meet with a Physician to learn about your treatment options. While having a dual diagnosis is common, it is not the case for all of our patients. As a result, you will notice that individuals who do not have mental health concerns do not have the same treatment design that you do. For some, the time that you spend with us in our inpatient program can be extended to give you the time needed to engage in specialized treatment for your mental health concerns.
We have two outpatient treatment programs available to you once you complete an inpatient rehab program. This would include our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). PHP programs are also referred to as day programs because they have you engaged in treatment for several hours during the day and allow you to return home in the evening.
This can be an excellent option for individuals who are in need of additional structure and support after an inpatient rehab program. You would be able to continue receiving treatment for your mental health concerns while in this program.
IOP programs are similar to PHP programs; however, they typically require fewer hours of treatment and have a shorter duration. This program can be customized to your needs, meaning that the hours you are expected to be in treatment will vary from others.
