Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Newark Help for Dual Diagnosis

Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatment in Newark

Despite several initiatives by NGOs and strict laws by the government, drug and alcohol addiction remain to be one of the fastest growing crisis in the U.S.

Data suggests that about 23.1 million people have an illicit substance abuse problem, out of which 17.9 million people have alcohol addiction problems thats 7% of the total population.

Also, the number of alcoholic liver deaths numbered 15,990; similarly, the number of alcohol induced deaths (excluding accidents) numbered 25,692. Likewise, the number of deaths caused by drug abuse in 2010 was 78,000 which is debatable because several illicit drugs including ecstasy and hallucinogens were not included.

Abusive individuals usually get a dual diagnosis and end up in a treatment facility, such as the Newark Dual Diagnosis treatment facility. What is a dual diagnosis anyways?

Newark Dual Diagnosis: Definition

Dual diagnosis refers to people who have two mental health problems that co-exist together. It can be a developmental disorder co-existing with a mental disorder or with learning disability or with substance abuse. Most dual diagnosis involves mental disorder and drug abuse.

The connection between drugs and mental disorder is very strong. Individuals who abuse drugs have at least one significant mental disorder (e.g. schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, etc.) and most people struggling with mental illness have a substance abuse problem or a alcohol problem.

Some Are More Prone To Addiction Than Others:

Vulnerability to drugs and alcohol depends on person to person. This is because your environment, genes, family history and mental health all play a vital role in determining the impact of these substances on you.

Another factor which affects your vulnerability is how early you started using these substances. The earlier you start, the higher the chances of you being addicted. Also, the method you use to use the drug matters a lot. If you are smoking or injecting it, the chances of getting addicted to the drug increase.

Newark Addiction Treatment Centers

People showing symptoms of dual diagnosis should be referred to any Newark Addiction Treatment Centers to manage their condition effectively. Once admitted, the psychiatrist first examines the person s condition. The examination involves holistic assessment (physical, mental, emotional and social), series of interviews and laboratory tests to establish the existence of dual diagnosis. If the person is found to have hallucinations, delusions, or other mental disabilities because of drug overdose, he/she would usually be detoxified first. Once the person gains his/her sanity back, he/she will then be subjected to Newark substance abuse programs. These programs are made to help drug addicts realize their condition, accept who they are and cope from the addiction itself.

Other treatments will also be available such as psychopharmacology (medication treatment), psychotherapy (individual, group or family therapy) and behavioral management (made to alter behavior and help a person attain effective coping strategies).
