Trying to recover from a substance use disorder can be an immense challenge, but when that substance use disorder is accompanied by another mental health disorder, recovery can be exponentially more difficult.
What is a Co-occurring Disorder?
At the addiction rehab centers within the White Deer Run Treatment Network in Pennsylvania, we use the phrase co-occurring disorders when we refer to the presence of other mental health concerns in addition to a primary substance use disorder. Many people who are struggling with substance abuse at rehab centers within the White Deer Run Treatment Network also find themselves trying to cope with the symptoms of the following co-occurring disorders:
- Depressive disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
At the addiction rehab centers within the White Deer Run Treatment Network, we understand how common co-occurring disorders can be among people who are struggling with substance abuse, and we also know how important it is to address all of the challenges that an individual may be dealing with. Care within our network is specially designed to provide a comprehensive treatment experience that gives the men and women of Pennsylvania the best possible chance of a life free from the chains of substance abuse.
Benefits of Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
Those who choose to heal with us will benefit from both our small, intimate rehab settings and our large network of resources. Caring, experienced treatment staff members work with each participant to develop an individualized treatment plan that address that person’s unique rehab goals and gives him or her the best possible chance at a successful recovery.
Individuals at our rehab centers receive a variety of services tailored to their needs. Individual therapy is a time for participants to meet one-on-one with their therapist or counselor and build on the progress they are making in treatment while also processing the effects of their co-occurring mental illness. Groups bring participants together, giving them a chance to support each other, learn from each other’s experience, and practice newly-learned recovery skills. Many White Deer Run Treatment Network rehab centers offer specialized groups for people struggling with co-occurring mental health disorders.
It is difficult to overcome a substance use disorder, and it can feel nearly impossible to do so when one is also struggling with a co-occurring mental illness. However, with the specialized care provided at the rehab centers within the White Deer Run Treatment Network in Pennsylvania, it is possible to find freedom from substance abuse and learn to manage the symptoms of co-occurring mental health disorders, allowing you to live a life of freedom and happiness.
