Mental health treatment has become an essential component of the treatment of addiction disorders, because many people with substance abuse issues also suffer with a co-occurring mental health issue. The need for dual diagnosis treatment has become increasingly apparent over the last few years, and many treatment programs in Bridger now offer dual diagnosis treatment as part of a broader spectrum of services together with traditional and more progressive rehabilitation methods.
In many cases, mental health treatment starts with the initial diagnosis of an individual's disorder, particularly when addiction is present. In many cases, the client doesn't even realize they have an undiagnosed anxiety disorder or are struggling with depression until it is diagnosed in a mental health physician's office or treatment facility. Once diagnosed, corrective steps can be put forth to help the client become mentally stable, and this may involve the use of various counseling, therapies, and possibly medication administration or cessation of medication. In many instances however, clients struggling with a dual diagnosis are self-medicating with drugs and alcohol or possibly abusing or misusing their medications. In these cases, rehab staff and medical practitioners can review medication records and recommend actions which can be put forth to eliminate the need for medication. Patients can be safely weaned off of medications which may be doing more harm than good, or those which they are inclined to abuse.
