According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 37 percent of alcohol abusers and 53 percent of drug abusers also have at least one serious mental illness. If you fall into this category, and are in New Jersey, you should come see us at the Affordable Rehab of Trenton where we can give you the help you need for your dual diagnosis.
It is difficult to make a dual diagnosis because often times the two conditions are co-occurring and closely related. It is difficult to determine what behavior is being caused by a mental disorder and what might be from an addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Don’t be in denial any longer. The sooner you face up to the fact that you have a substance abuse problem, possibly co-occurring with a mental health issue, the sooner we can start to administer the right treatment for your dual diagnosis.
Some common signs of depression include the inability to feel pleasure, sleep pattern changes, energy loss and concentration problems. Some common signs of mania in bipolar disorder include needing less sleep, speaking quickly to express racing thoughts, unrealistic, grandiose plans, and hyperactivity. Some common signs of anxiety include feeling restless, worrying, nausea and/or dizziness, and trouble sleeping. If you think you may suffer from dual diagnosis, these are the mental health issues that most commonly occur along with substance abuse.
At the Affordable Rehab of Trenton, we treat both the mental health issue at the same time as the substance abuse problem. This integrated approach allows us to help you detox in order to help us pinpoint the behavior that is being caused by the mental health issue once you are sober. Then we can come up with the correct treatment for the mental health diagnosis and continue our substance abuse rehab.
Don’t waste another day. Let’s us help you start to think clearly and get you on the road to recovery. Dual diagnosis doesn’t have to define you and your life. We can help you get it under control right now.Back to Blog Index
