Substance Abuse and Mental Health

Tackling an addiction is quite challenging, and it can be even tougher when you are also fighting issues related to your mental health.

In dual diagnosis, both the mental health as well as the substance addiction have their own inimitable symptoms that will get within the way of your ability to function normally at work or school, uphold a stable home life, overcoming the challenges of life as well as connecting with others. What makes this more complicated, the dual diagnosis also tend to affect one another. The minute a mental health problem goes untreated, the substance addiction problem usually gets worse. For instance, when alcohol addiction increases, mental health dilemmas typically surge as well.

Our admissions team are here to support you through the recovery process. Speak to us via phone, email or Livechat today.

What Happens at the Clinic

At the clinic, you will first be introduced to our admissions team. If needed, you will go through an extensive admissions survey and medical check ups. If this is not necessary according to your initial assessment, we will continue with the admission process.

The first step in your treatment will be a detox. If you are suffering from a substance use disorder which requires medically assisted detox, our medical staff will instruct you and begin the process. Most detoxes last about two weeks.

Once cleansed, you will dive into the world of tailored therapies and workshops in both group and individual sessions.

The last step we offer is complimentary one-year-long aftercare.

Changing for the Better

While undergoing treatment for a dual diagnosis within our facilities, you will observe changes in yourself. Your loved ones will also notice you change. This is normal, because addiction is often a coping mechanism. While we help you remove these mechanisms and find better ones, which nurture a healthier future for you, your worldviews might change.

To support your family unit during these times, we offer family therapy sessions in various settings and formats. Talk to your therapists at The Provy to discuss the options.
