Recovering from dual diagnosis might be the hardest thing you ever have to do. No one said itwould be easy. Overcoming an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol is difficult. Recognizing you are suffering from a mental illness, getting yourself diagnosed and receiving the correct treatment, is difficult. But doing both at the same time is beyond difficult.
At the Affordable Rehab of Worcester, we are here to help you recover from dual diagnosis…one step at a time. It is not something that will go away overnight. You will work on your recovery for the rest of your life, but we will help you learn the skills you need at rehab to get you started on your way.
We will help you go through withdrawal of your addiction, whether it is to drugs and/or alcohol. Once the substances have gone through your system, we will be able to treat your dual diagnosis, by identifying and diagnosing your mental illness. Whether you suffer from bipolar disorder or depression or any other mental illness, we will help you get on the right track, while at the same time helping you overcome your addiction.
What makes treating, and living with, dual diagnosis so difficult is that the two conditions often work to exacerbate each other. Addiction and mental illness are closely linked to each other, as those suffering from mental illness often try to self-medicate the symptoms of their illness with drugs or alcohol. Another way the two are linked is that using drugs and alcohol can sometimes work to increase the underlying risk of mental illness.
If you are suffering from dual diagnosis and it is getting in the way of your ability to live life, let us help you at the Affordable Rehab of Worcester. One step at a time, we will lead you to the road to recovery. While it seems like a mountain to climb right now, it is possible for you to get clean and sober.
