Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Women
If someone has a substance use disorder in conjunction with a mental health disorder, they are classified as having co-occurring disorders, previously known as “dual diagnoses.” These disorders impact nearly every aspect of a woman’s mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual life.
Because co-occurring mental health disorders directly affect one another, Hannah’s House clinical professionals make sure that they are treated at the same time, thereby improving the likelihood of a successful outcome.
You Are Not Alone
According to the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS), roughly 45% of Americans seeking alcohol or drug treatment have also been diagnosed with co-occurring disorders. Mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder are included in this list. These conditions must be treated alongside the disease of addiction in order to achieve sustained recovery.
Women, like men, often suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which is precipitated by traumatic experiences in one’s life. Disassociation from self and events, as well as anxiety, anger, depression, and insomnia are some symptoms of PTSD.
Integrated Treatment Is Key to Recovery
Hannah’s House focuses on trauma-informed, integrated treatment. Our comprehensive programming offers the therapeutic resources necessary to help women heal mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
Unhealthy substance use has no one root cause, although living with a mental health condition may increase the likelihood of developing addiction — and vice versa.
Each woman is different. Sometimes, a mental health disorder predates the development of alcohol or drug abuse. In other cases, mental health symptoms do not appear until after addiction has taken hold. Drug use of any kind often makes these conditions worse.
Treatment plans for women with co-occurring disorders should include:
- Psychiatric services and ongoing care (including medication, when appropriate)
- Evidence-based therapies
- Case management
- Family education and programming
- Relationship counseling
- Life skills training
- 12-Step or spiritual support
- Continuing care planning
Every woman seeking recovery at Hannah’s House receives a comprehensive treatment plan designed with her specific needs in mind. We offer carefully individualized plan for care that takes every aspect of a person’s health and wellbeing into account: body, mind, and spirit.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment Begins with an Assessment
Each woman at Hannah’s House takes part in thorough behavioral health assessments to ensure that all substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders are diagnosed and treated. Rigorous assessments are combined with clinical interviews and individual sessions with our primary therapists.
All aspects of this boutique, trauma-informed care approach provide a foundation for customized treatment planning that ensures Hannah’s House patients get the individualized care they deserve.
Our Addiction Specialists Include Skilled Medical Professionals
Our medical professionals and licensed therapists meet daily to discuss each patient and collaborate on solutions. This highly specialized, integrated treatment model has been shown to improve outcomes and enhance quality of life for women.
We treat co-occurring disorders through medically intensive, multidisciplinary programming, attending not only to the physical and mental needs of each woman but to their emotional and spiritual needs, as well.
While there is no cure for any mental health disorder, including addiction, it is possible to live a life filled with hope and courage. Treatment interventions and research-based therapies have proven effective for co-occurring disorders.
When integrated treatment and long-term support are applied through the skilled and caring professionals at Hannah’s House, women with co-occurring disorders can and do recover.
