At Aspen Grove Behavioral Hospital, we understand that addiction to alcohol or drugs can often coexist with other significant conditions, impacting the overall success of treatment. This combination of addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders, known as dual diagnosis, requires specialized care to address both aspects simultaneously.
We recognize that conditions such as depression, anxiety, mood instability and post-traumatic stress commonly contribute to a dual diagnosis. These conditions can complicate the recovery process and necessitate comprehensive treatment to achieve positive outcomes.
At our hospital, we approach addiction with compassion and understanding. We acknowledge that addiction is not a character deficiency or moral weakness, but a progressive and potentially life-threatening disease that profoundly affects individuals and their families. We recognize the long-term emotional and physical impact it can have.
To ensure effective treatment, we prioritize addressing both the addiction and the co-occurring mental health problems. Studies show that at least 30 percent of individuals with alcohol and/or drug addiction also experience emotional disorders. By recognizing and treating these underlying disorders, we can increase the likelihood of sustained recovery and reduce the likelihood of addictive behaviors persisting.
With decades of experience in dealing with psychiatric illness and substance addictions, our hospitals are well-equipped to provide comprehensive care. Our objective is to facilitate a successful transition back to an individual’s daily routine as soon as possible, while also addressing the complexities of their dual diagnosis. We employ evidence-based approaches, personalized treatment plans and a multidisciplinary team to guide individuals towards lasting recovery.
At Aspen Grove Behavioral Hospital, we are committed to supporting individuals in overcoming addiction and co-occurring disorders. We strive to provide the highest quality of care, fostering healing, growth and a renewed sense of hope for individuals and their families.
