Addiction and mental health issues go hand in hand. In fact, addiction is a mental health issue itself. Studies show that people who suffer from mental disorders are more likely to develop addiction and vice versa. At Santé Center for Healing, we understand this and offer dual diagnosis treatment options.
What Is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
In short, dual diagnosis treatment is an addiction treatment program that focuses on multiple problems. Unlike some addiction programs that simply focus on addiction, this type of treatment also deals with underlying psychological issues. It’s our experience that people suffer from both addiction and psychological issues at the same time.
In fact, research shows that addiction can often cause mental health problems develop. Likewise, some mental health problems can lead to addiction. Failure to address underlying psychological issues can cause relapse in individuals who have received treatment. Those dealing with these issues should seek out the best dual diagnosis treatment centers in Texas.
