Mental health treatment has become an important component of the treatment of substance abuse disorders, due to the fact that many individuals with substance abuse issues struggle with a co-occurring mental health issue. The necessity for dual diagnosis treatment has become more and more apparent over the last few years, and many treatment programs in Jackson also provide dual diagnosis rehabilitation as part of a wider range of services over and above conventional and more progressive treatment for addiction.
In most instances, mental health treatment involves the initial diagnosis of the person's disorder, especially when addiction is present. In many cases, the client doesn't even realize they have an anxiety disorder or are suffering with depression until it is diagnosed in a mental health physician's office or treatment facility. Once diagnosed, steps can be taken to help the client become mentally stable, and this can include the use of specific psychotherapies, counseling, and possibly medication or cessation of medication. In many cases however, clients struggling with a dual diagnosis are attempting to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol or possibly misusing their medications. In these cases, treatment staff and mental health professionals can review medication records and recommend steps which can be put forth to do away with the need for medication. People can be safely weaned off of medications which are doing more harm than good, or those which they are inclined to misuse.
