If you are struggling with mental illness compounded with addiction, you’re not alone. In the United States, more than 40 million people suffer from some kind of substance use disorder, and at least 38% of them also have a diagnosable mental illness. Addiction is a disease, and like any disease, it requires treatment. Substance abuse creates a cycle where you become dependent on the drug. When you try to stop and escape addiction, you experience cravings and withdrawal symptoms that make it difficult to stay sober. Maybe you’ve tried to quit before, but have failed, or you entered rehab but eventually relapsed. Addiction can have a powerful hold and can dangerously end in overdosing. However, through our drug addiction treatment program at TruHealing Gaithersburg, you can find help for the future and the foundation for lasting sobriety.
At TruHealing Gaithersburg, we have a team of mental health specialists ready to help you rebuild your life. Every individual in our program receives a personalized treatment plan. We’re also here to support you from when you first step through our doors to your long-term recovery. Our alumni program and aftercare plans ensure that you have the support you need to stay sober even in difficult times. Our goal is for you to be mentally well, healthy and drug-free, and we can help you get there.
Do I Need Help for Mental Health and Co-Occurring Drug Addiction?
If you have felt the need to enter a mental health and addiction treatment program but weren’t sure if it was right for you, there are ways to find out. The American Psychiatric Association has clearly defined addiction, and you can use their criteria to choose what drug rehab program is right for you. The signs to look out for include the following:
- A significant amount of your time is spent getting, experimenting, and recovering from drugs
- You crave drugs when you are not using them
- You’ve experienced negative effects both physically and psychologically from drug use, yet you continue to use
- Attempts to stop using drugs have been unsuccessful
- You experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop using drugs
- Damage to relationships, finances, or employment as a result of drug use
- You’ve engaged in dangerous activities while under the influence of drugs, like driving or operating machinery
- You’ve been unable to fulfill your responsibilities at work, in school, or at home
If any of the above applies to you and you believe you have a co-occurring mental illness, such as depression or anxiety, TruHealing Gaithersburg can help you regain control of your mental health and your life. Give us a call to find out how.
