Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Lancaster Help for Dual Diagnosis

Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Lancaster

Substance addiction and abuse is the worst thing that someone can do to themselves. Controlled usage is one thing, but if a person starts overdoing drugs or alcohol, it can lead to serious consequences.

If you are fighting against an addiction and have struggled to give up the substances, then you may be looking at the wrong type of treatment. Lancaster drug addiction programs often focus on a specific type of treatment process. When your addiction stems from a mental health condition or when a mental illness has developed as a result of substance abuse, Lancaster dual diagnosis treatment is the best way to fight against substance abuse.

What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Lancaster alcohol rehab programs and other substance abuse facilities may or may not offer dual diagnosis treatment. When you are struggling with an addiction, the fuel for the substance abuse may not be easy to recognize. A dual diagnosis means that the underlying cause of the addiction or the fuel that is feeding the addiction is actually a mental health disorder.

Truth about Drugs and Alcohol:

Drugs and alcohol arent anyones best friends when it comes to dealing with shyness, confidence or anxiety issues. They may provide a temporary solution to the problems, but often times when the effect of these substances wears off, the problems come back, hitting people harder than ever. Drugs and alcohol are expensive. An addict starts spending a lot of money on this alone which could lead him to face many financial issues later on. Along with this, addicts have to face some very severe health issues later on in life. An addict who wishes to recover has to face a lot of withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are very painful, and in some cases harmful.

Lancaster Addiction Treatment Centers

People showing symptoms of dual diagnosis should be referred to any Lancaster Addiction Treatment Centers to manage their condition effectively. Once admitted, the psychiatrist first examines the person s condition. The examination involves holistic assessment (physical, mental, emotional and social), series of interviews and laboratory tests to establish the existence of dual diagnosis. If the person is found to have hallucinations, delusions, or other mental disabilities because of drug overdose, he/she would usually be detoxified first. Once the person gains his/her sanity back, he/she will then be subjected to Lancaster substance abuse programs. These programs are made to help drug addicts realize their condition, accept who they are and cope from the addiction itself.

Other treatments will also be available such as psychopharmacology (medication treatment), psychotherapy (individual, group or family therapy) and behavioral management (made to alter behavior and help a person attain effective coping strategies).
