Mental Health and Addiction Treatment


Someone who suffers from substance abuse simultaneously with a mental illness should be properly diagnosed with a co-occurring disorder.

What a Dual Diagnosis Includes  

Individuals who turn to drugs or alcohol as a way to cope with a mental illness may be dealing with a co-occurring disorder. It’s crucial that someone with signs of two disorders gets a proper diagnosis to ensure effective treatment. Medical experts at an addiction treatment center will be able to medically assess someone who is exhibiting signs of mental illness on top of addiction. Everyone experiences their own unique journey with mental health and addiction and for some, the onset of a mental illness leads to substance abuse. Dealing with depression or anxiety can be extremely debilitating and it is common for people to self-medicate with unhealthy behaviors.

Our treatment professionals are able to develop an individualized treatment plan that will successfully treat both disorders while addressing the patient’s needs and recovery goals. Someone undergoing dual diagnosis treatment will partake in group and individualized therapy to learn from past mistakes and find healthy ways to move forward in recovery.

It’s possible to enter recovery from both diseases and our team Banyan Treatment Center is here to help people start the process as soon as possible. If you or a loved one is exhibiting signs of both addiction and mental health struggles, contact our addiction treatment center in Pompano Beach today at 888-280-4763.
