Many times, addictions go hand in hand with psychiatric illness. Some of the most common concurring psychiatric illnesses are bipolar disorder and depression. While treating alcohol and/or drug addiction, it is essential to treat the underlying psychiatric disorder as well. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, 37% of alcoholics and 53% of addicts suffer from at least one concurring illness. In addition, 29% of all people with mental illnesses are drug or alcohol addicts.
It is impossible to ignore this link. Drug and alcohol abuse often hide symptoms of psychiatric illnesses. Treating one but not the other does not fully addresses your problems, and is not effective. We therefore work with you to help both the addiction and the psychiatric illness.
Without treating underlying causal conditions, you are much more likely to fall back into addiction to drugs and alcohol. Because we want you to succeed, we provide a plan for treating psychiatric disorders. By clearing your system of more than alcohol and drugs, and by giving you coping skills for the future, we help you remain healthy and happy beyond the rehabilitation process.
