What We Treat
We treat a wide variety of addictions and conditions.
Recognizing signs of substance abuse is not always easy. A person suffering from substance abuse issues may also be suffering from conditions related to a mental impairment. When such multiple conditions present themselves, the predominance of one may hide or mask the other. This may cause the true condition that a patient suffers from to go undiagnosed, denying needed treatment from taking place.
A way to address the presence of multiple conditions within a patient is through dual diagnosis treatment. This method helps to identify all of the issues that are present, thus guiding the care provider with a pathway towards recommending the correct course of treatment. There are various situations that may present these types of multiple conditions to present themselves. We, the Resurgence Recovery Center, will explore together with you to guide you toward obtaining the right level of help and assistance.
Learning About Co-Occurring Disorders
A co-occuring disorder (dual diagnosis) is present when a person suffers from both a mental impairment or illness alongside an issue with substance abuse (typically alcohol and other drug abuse). It is not possible to recommend the proper course of action in terms of treatment until both the substance addiction and mental impairment are properly identified and addressed.

Types of Mental Illness
The types of mental illness that may co-occur with substance abuse is not necessarily a finite one. Such issues that may occur in multiple with an alcohol or drug abuse condition include mild to severe depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and even bipolar disease. In a situation where a co-occurence of issues are present, determining which cause which (cause and effect) may not be readily identifiable. The conditions may share the same underlying factor, such as a chemical imbalance in the brain. Self medication through drugs and alcohol may be seen as a way to address the mental illness, more than often exacerbating both.
Through dual diagnosis, a mental health provider can uncover the relationship between the conditions. A variety of treatment options are provided through Resurgence Recovery Center. Examples of the types of co-occuring conditions that we treat include the following:
An anxiety sufferer experiences fears that are both irrational and crippling in nature. This is characterized by persistent worry, fear, helplessness, and hopelessness. Resurgence Recovery Center has treatment solutions that can help people with anxiety, without the assistance of alcohol or drugs.
Bipolar sufferers are known to experience both the highest of highs in life but also the lowest of lows. These extremes between mania and depression are unhealthy and where they may occur all too frequently, could be deemed dangerous to the sufferer’s health. Resurgence Recovery Center provides diagnosis and treatment solutions for those with bipolar disorder.
Depression is a condition that many of us experience for some period or another in our lives. Where such a condition is persistent for a long period of time, create a sense of foreboding or is debilitating in nature, it can be seen as a serious, chronic condition. Untreated, depression can not only affect a person’s life, but the lives of those around.
A person with OCD experience compulsions or obsessions that are uncontrollable. Such is the case with individuals who are compulsive in their habits and rituals, such as cleaning, having to maintain a certain sense of order to the point that anything out of place can be maddening. OCD impacts relationships and responsibilities; treatment can help a sufferer deal more effectively with life and their condition.
Trauma that we experienced at some point earlier in our life may manifest in unpleasant memories that reoccur later on. More than just unpleasant, a person suffering from PTSD can suffer from haunting nightmares, memories that are unwanted and intense emotional symptoms. Relief from the debilitating effects of PTSD can relieve suffers.
This condition affects the way a person acts in relationship to those around. A schizophrenic may feel as if they have lost touch with a sense of reality. This may be heightened by hallucinations. Diagnosis and treatment that is immediate can often be the difference in the care of a person suffering from schizophrenia.
