Dual Diagnosis: Addiction Treatment for the Body and Mind
According to the most recent National Epidemiologic Survey on ALcohol and Related Conditions, a new study published in JAMA Psychiatry has reported that almost 30% of American adults have dealt with an alcohol use disorder within their lifetime. The same study also shows that there has been a significant increase in alcohol use disorders in the United States over the last decade.Unfortunately, only a small percentage of these affected individuals ever seek professional treatment or other help. United Drug Rehab Group is passionate about facilitating the recovery of as many individuals as possible. Our network of providers does not want you or a loved one to become a part of these statistics. There is effective help available that will prepare you for a sober life, one full of maximized potential.
What is Dual Diagnosis?
United Drug Rehab Group designs fully customizable addiction treatment programs for each of our clients. We know that everyone has had a different experience with addiction and that prescribing the same cookie cutter treatment for every patient is not the most effective way to respond to addiction. Each patient will work with a case manager to build an addiction recovery program that is right for them; however, every treatment plan will be designed from a dual diagnosis standpoint. By treating both the physical and psychological facets of addiction, our network of providers is able to create a solid foundation for your lasting recovery. The two main components of a dual diagnosis program are a medically administered detox and intensive therapy.
What is a Medically Administered Detox?
The first part of your addiction treatment program at United Drug Rehab Group is to submit to a medically administered detoxification. We know that it is frightening and overwhelming to deal with withdrawals, and we do not want our clients to be put through the physical and mental stress of attempting to quit “cold turkey.” Our doctors administer non-addictive medication to enable you to relax throughout the detoxification process. We are dedicated to ensuring that your detox is a comfortable and safe experience for you or your loved one. It is imperative to do a detox at the start of treatment because it prompts your brain to let your body know that it is no longer physically reliant on daily substance abuse.
What is Intensive Therapy?
United Drug Rehab Group offers three different types of therapeutic options for you to take part in. Once your body has been detoxed, it will then be time to treat the mind. Individual counseling is the ideal place to open up about your experience with addiction and explore the root of your disease with a licensed professional. Group therapy is designed as a safe space for clients to open up about their experiences with addiction and potentially learn from others’ life choices and decisions. Family services are offered as a place to communicate with loved ones about your addiction, under the mediation of a licensed professional.
