There are approximately 8 million Americans who struggle with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders, also known as a dual diagnosis. Individuals who have a mental health disorder, regardless of whether it has been properly diagnosed or not, are more likely to have some type of substance abuse disorder. This can be difficult to diagnose and treat, and if either are left untreated both can become more damaging for the individual, leaving them exposed to physical, mental and social consequences. Consequences in these special cases can be severe, sometimes leading to homelessness, suicide, legal consequences and premature death. With proper diagnosis and specialized treatment methods to address the co-occurring disorders at the same time, this can be prevented and clients in Emmett with co-occurring disorders can be productive and live happily.
With increased awareness, research and innovation in the field of treatment for co-occurring substance abuse disorders has come a more broad range of treatment services for these individuals. Early diagnosis can be key in these situations, and many people with co-occurring disorders may seek primary care services first before looking for behavioral health services. This offers PCP's a special chance to identify individuals with co-occurring disorders through screening and then referral to the correct treatment services.
Individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders require a more broad spectrum of services than the typical treatment client, services that are usually provided in hospital, inpatient, and residential programs which can help with the initial detoxification process and off of any medications and drugs they need to quit taking immediately. Clinicians and treatment specialists work with clients in these settings to treat both issues concurrently with behavioral therapy, counseling, and mental health services, and before program completion devise a sturdy relapse prevention and aftercare plan to make sure these clients don't immediately relapse because of either disorder being activated.
