24 hour helpline call usAs the percentage of drug abusers and alcoholics in the USA continues to increase, there are only a few rehabilitation centers and facilities offering science and evidence based treatment. Most people struggling with drug abuse have an underlying psychological issue that fuels their abuse of substances. These psychiatric conditions may include:

Dual diagnosis occurs when someone has both an alcohol and/or drug problem as well as a psychiatric condition. When these two disorders or illnesses occur in the same person, simultaneously or sequentially, they are called co-morbid. Some of the highly reputed rehab centers in the US like Inspire Malibu have started providing dual diagnosis treatment to individuals suffering from co-morbidity. For treating a dual diagnosis case it is essential to understand the risk factors that surround the patient and use appropriate tools and skill set to mitigate the risk of relapse. Not every drug rehab is equipped to address psychiatric issues fully.

So, it is critical to choose your drug rehab center with care. Not only do you need to ensure that the co-occurring disorders be appropriately addressed while in treatment but adequate follow-up and after-care recommendations are also made so that the patient is not at high risk for relapse.

Whenever you go to a drug rehab facility inquire about the various processes. It is important that the drug rehab facility has specialized doctors with clinical expertise in the particular psychiatric area that the patient requires help with. Only a specialized medical expert can treat various behavioral problems accurately and prevent their relapse in future.
