Many individuals who struggle with substance use issues simultaneously suffer from an underlying mental health concern. Attempting to cope with both issues at once can be overwhelming. Furthermore, in order for a person to truly recover from one issue, both must be treated concurrently.

Treat the Root of the Problem

What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health concerns used to be addressed in separate treatment centers. Today, the unique needs of dual-diagnosis patients are better understood. Essentially, dual-diagnosis treatment refers to a clinical program that addresses addiction and mental health at the same time. 

In most cases, dual-diagnosis patients are first stabilized in a medical detox center. Here, they undergo a safe, pain-free drug or alcohol withdrawal under the close supervision of a team of medical professionals. Once physically stabilized, they transition into a dual-diagnosis treatment center. Here, their addiction is addressed on a more thorough basis. Additionally, any underlying mental health concerns are identified and treated. Antipsychotic medication is prescribed if necessary, and patients have access to a range of evidence-based therapies. 

What to Expect From Dual Diagnosis Treatment in Utah

Dual diagnosis treatment centers in Utah offer multi-faceted approaches to addiction and mental health recovery. Most dual-diagnosis treatment programs begin with an intake interview. After intake, most patients undergo withdrawal in a medical detox center. This stage of the treatment process is followed by residential programming, outpatient programming, and aftercare. 

An assessment is a vital first step as it allows the treatment team to learn more about underlying mental health concerns and a person’s relationship with drugs or alcohol. The assessment also allows providers to learn more about physical and emotional health. The intake process helps ensure treatment plans include therapeutic interventions focusing on unique treatment needs and goals. 

Depending on specific needs and goals, patients will participate in various therapies designed to help them learn more about their symptoms, how to manage them adequately, and how to manage triggering situations after treatment ends. As a patient approaches their treatment program’s end, therapeutic team members will work to develop an aftercare plan. Aftercare plans ensure patients have the ongoing support and guidance they need.

How We Treat Dual Diagnosis Disorders

Our Dual Diagnosis Treatment Services 

Generally speaking, effective dual diagnosis treatment in Utah involves a combination of intensive therapeutic intervention, medication management services, and psychiatric care. We have on-staff psychiatrists who meet regularly with dual-diagnosis clients.

At Spirit Mountain Recovery, we take a holistic approach to dual diagnosis care. In addition to therapy, medication, and mental health treatment options, we offer holistic services like yoga therapy, equine therapy, and mindfulness meditation.

What We Treat

The Dual Diagnosis Disorders We Treat

Anxiety is a generalized mental health concern involving stress and worry, anxiety-producing thought patterns, and physical changes like increased heart rate and blood pressure. The American Psychological Association states, “Anxiety is not the same as fear, but they are often used interchangeably. Anxiety is considered a future-oriented, long-acting response broadly focused on a diffuse threat, whereas fear is an appropriate, present-oriented, and short-lived response to a clearly identifiable and specific threat.”

People who struggle with anxiety experience a range of disruptive symptoms, including persistent feelings of fear, increased heart rate, uncontrollable shaking, and gastrointestinal issues. In many cases, anxiety is effectively treated with a combination of medication and therapy.

Depression is one of the most common co-occurring mental health concerns. The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance notes, “Major depressive disorder affects approximately 17.3 million American adults, or about 7.1% of the U.S. population age 18 and older, in a given year. Over 20%  of Americans with an anxiety or mood disorder such as depression have an alcohol or other substance use disorder (both alcohol and other substances) experience depression.” 

It is not uncommon for people to experience changes in mood on occasion. In most cases, feelings of sadness are directly linked to external circumstances, and they dissipate as the situation resolves. However, those suffering from major depressive disorder and other forms of depression often require antidepressant medication and long-term therapeutic intervention.

ADHD is a mental health concern characterized by difficulty paying attention, impulse control, and problems completing day-to-day tasks or carrying out personal responsibilities. In most cases, ADHD is diagnosed during childhood. However, it is not uncommon for individuals with undiagnosed ADHD to begin self-medicating with drugs and alcohol later on in life. 

An article published by the American Academy of Pediatrics titled “ADHD and Substance Abuse: The Link Parents Need to Know,” states, “Children and teens with ADHD are more likely ​than other kids to smoke, drink, or use drugs. They experiment with all three at younger ages than those children without ADHD. They are also at a greater risk for developing a substance use disorder.”

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that causes significant changes to a person’s mood and makes it more difficult for them to function in everyday life. People diagnosed with bipolar disorder experience intense emotional states, known as mood episodes, lasting for several weeks or months. They tend to vacillate between manic episodes and depressive episodes. During mania, a person is excessively happy and energetic. When they slip into a depressive episode, they feel sad and hopeless and struggle with abnormally low energy levels. 

At Spirit Mountain Recovery, we treat individuals who have bipolar disorder and co-occurring substance use issues. In many cases, people with undiagnosed or untreated bipolar disorder will self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. Over time, they develop a physical dependence on chemical substances that must be treated in conjunction with the underlying mental health issue.
