Our Board Certified Psychiatric Physician is able to make a “dual diagnosis” of any co-occurring mental health disorder that maybe acerbating or contributing to an individual’s addiction. This assessment is performed as a part of the client’s Initial Psychiatric Assessment upon their entrance to our program. These findings are then incorporated into the Individualized Treatment Program for that individual so we are treating the whole person and not just their obvious substance addiction. A truly comprehensive approach to assuring the best recovery.
Greater than 70% of all individuals who suffer with substance usage disorders are also dealing with an underlying co-occurring mental health issue like anxiety, depression, adult ADD/ADHD, bipolar or delusional disorders to name a few.
With the highly experienced expertise of our Physician/Psychiatrist, Nursing Staff and Psychologist, Spirit Mountain Recovery is uniquely qualified to treat any underlying behavioral health issue acerbating or contributing to an individual’s addiction.
Here's What We Treat...
A mental health disorder characterized by feelings of worry, anxiety, or fear that are strong enough to interfere with one’s daily activities. Examples of anxiety disorders include panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Symptoms include stress that’s out of proportion to the impact of the event, inability to set aside a worry and restlessness. Treatment includes counseling or medications, including antidepressants.
A mental health disorder characterized by persistently depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life. The persistent feeling of sadness or loss of interest that characterizes major depression can lead to a range of behavioral and physical symptoms. These may include changes in sleep, appetite, energy level, concentration, daily behavior, or self-esteem. Depression can also be associated with thoughts of suicide.
A chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. ADHD often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. It may contribute to low self-esteem, troubled relationships, and difficulty at school or work.
A disorder associated with episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs. The exact cause of bipolar disorder isn’t known, but a combination of genetics, environment, and altered brain structure and chemistry may play a role.
