Learn About Mental Health Disorder Treatment

Treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

Sometimes when a person struggles with an addiction, they also experience symptoms of a mental health disorder. They might turn to drugs or alcohol in hopes that those substances will help them cope with the symptoms of the mental health challenges they are experiencing, resulting in the development of a substance use disorder. Other people might start to experience symptoms of a mental health disorder because they are abusing drugs or alcohol.

When a person is suffering from both addiction and a mental health disorder, it is referred to as a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder. Living with both challenges might seem distressing and overwhelming, but healing and recovery are possible by seeking treatment for both concerns.

Addiction affects people of all backgrounds, no matter their income, gender, or job title. Some of the most common substance use disorders include alcohol addiction, opioid addiction, benzodiazepine addiction, and cannabis addiction. Depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia are mental health disorders that commonly co-occur with addiction.

Mental health disorders can disrupt a person’s life in numerous ways, making it challenging to function on a daily basis. A person who is suffering from depression may struggle with feelings of worthlessness or emptiness and lose interest in things that used to bring them joy. Someone who is suffering from an anxiety disorder might feel on edge all the time. They may also feel fatigued but still struggle to get a good night’s sleep. And someone who is battling symptoms of bipolar disorder may experience bursts of intense mood or energy followed by a major depressive episode.

Each person’s experience is different depending on the addiction and co-occurring mental health disorder they are battling. At Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, Pennsylvania, we treat adults age 18 and older who have a primary addiction diagnosis, as well as those with co-occurring mental health disorders. Your journey to better health can start at our residential treatment center in the peaceful countryside of north-central Pennsylvania.

Why Consider Mental Health Disorder Treatment at Bradford

Why consider getting co-occurring mental health disorder treatment at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction and a coexisting mental health disorder, it is essential to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent any negative long-term effects from occurring. The longer you wait to seek treatment, the higher the risk that your life and the lives of those you love will be seriously damaged by the effects of the substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health challenges you are facing.

People who are suffering from an untreated mental health disorder, whether it’s depression, an anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, or something else, often isolate themselves from friends and family, damaging their relationships with the people closest to them. They may struggle to show up to work or perform their usual work duties, making it challenging to maintain long-term employment and financial security. In some cases, people who are battling untreated mental health disorders might act out impulsively or even violently, leading to trouble with the law, including arrest and incarceration.

Seeking treatment at the first signs of addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders can help reduce your risk of experiencing any long-term effects. The staff at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, Pennsylvania, is dedicated to getting to the root of your addiction and coexisting mental health concerns, providing care that is mentally, spiritually, and physically enriching.
