When you’re facing mental health and substance abuse issues, you can feel trapped by addiction and its rollercoaster. Recovering from alcohol or drug dependence is a complicated journey that also requires addressing anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and other mental health concerns. Standing at the crossroads of mental health and substance issues—this “dual diagnosis”—you are making the choice to break free from the strong pull that is capturing your psychological, physical and overall wellbeing.
You can recover from your mental health illness and addiction. At Beachway, we believe in addressing both issues with multi-modal therapies that are customized for the individual. At our retreat setting, you can escape a toxic environment so you can focus on dual diagnosis addiction treatment.
What Is Dual Diagnosis?
When mental health issues are pitted as a root cause of addiction and not treated in a dual diagnosis program, individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder can feel trapped by their mental health issue. They want to recover from an addiction, but their mental health disease becomes a justification—and this mindset can bond a person to addiction. Why would you try to get better if your anxiety is just going to drive you back to substances? (That’s the dangerous thinking this narrow-minded treatment approach can instill.) With this mindset, the addiction recovery process can feel like an empty promise.
At Beachway, we challenge that mindset and know from successful treatment that mental health issues can be treated. Beachway is one of the top dual diagnosis treatment centers with residential programs ranking in the top 1% of the country. We take a progressive approach and combines a range of therapies to accommodate each person’s needs. If you’re struggling with mental health issues and addiction, you need a dual diagnosis rehab program that takes into consideration the impact of both and treats the diseases in concert.
