Treating addiction & mental Health

Dual-Diagnosis Defined.

There are a number of conditions that tend to run together. One of the most common is the association between mental health disorders and substance abuse. For those who might not know, there are millions of people across the country who suffer from both of these. Sadly, there has been a stigma surrounding these disorders for a long time. Now, that stigma is getting lifted. This provides everyone who suffers from these conditions with access to resources they have needed for a long time. At Enlight Treatment Center, we are proud to provide a number of treatment programs that can help people in need. One of our most important is called our dual-diagnosis program. There are a few points that everyone should remember about this unique program.

Why is Dual-Diagnosis Needed?

Treating the Mind, Body & Spirit

Our dual-diagnosis program in Ventura County is a unique addiction treatment program that has been designed for people with two specific diagnoses. The first is a substance abuse or addiction disorder related to issues such as drugs or alcohol. The second is a mood disorder such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. A dual-diagnosis is designed to treat both of these at the same time. This program is important because the two are often found together.

Treating Co-ocurring Mental Illness

How Dual-Diagnosis Helps You Recover

Substance abuse disorders and other mental illnesses tend to run hand in hand. Sometimes, people develop mental health disorders as a consequence of what substance abuse does to their lives. In other cases, people with mental illnesses might not feel like their needs are being met by traditional medical therapies. Therefore, they end up addicted to drugs and alcohol instead. Regardless, it is impossible to separate the two issues. They need to be handled together. That is the goal of our dual-diagnosis program.

How treatment Can Make a Difference

Benefits of Dual-Diagnosis

There are a number of benefits that come with enrolling in a dual-diagnosis such as the one offered by Enlight Treatment Center. The first is that people will have access to professionals who are familiar with the treatment of both issues. It is important to note that addiction treatment and mental health disorders are unique in the medical community. These issues cannot be diagnosed with bloodwork or imaging. These disorders need to be diagnosed and managed by trained professionals with experience dealing with these problems. This is one of the main benefits of our dual-diagnosis program.

In addition, when someone enrolls in a dual-diagnosis program, they will be put with patients who have similar issues to their own. While access to medical professionals is certainly important, overcoming these obstacles requires so much more. It is also important to learn from others who have similar issues. Then, people can listen to what has happened in the lives of others. They will realize that they are not alone and that, like everyone else, their issues can be managed and conquered as well. This is the other main benefit of our dual-diagnosis program.

Our dual-diagnosis can help people who suffer from mental health disorders and substance abuse in a number of ways. Our professionals will work hard to get to know all of our patients and clients in a personal manner. We believe that by getting to know our patients better, we will be able to provide more targeted care.

Then, in our dual-diagnosis program, we will seek to learn more about how substance abuse and mental health issues related in each of our patients. We know that each of our patients has a unique story to tell. We are here to listen. Once we are able to figure out how the two are related, we will be able to come up with an effective treatment strategy.

Finally, we will come up with a plan that works for each of our patients. We have a number of resources at our disposal ranging from therapy to counseling and group sessions. We also have medications we can provide if they are needed. We will tailor each treatment plan to meet the unique needs of our patients.
