What We Treat
We treat a wide variety of addictions and conditions.
A person suffering from substance abuse issues may also be suffering from an undiagnosed mental illness. When multiple conditions present themselves, the predominance of one, the substance abuse, may hide or mask the other, a mental illness. This is called dual diagnosis. Unfortunately, addiction may cause your real, underlying condition to go undetected, denying you the comprehensive treatment you need.
In a situation where dual diagnosis occurs, determining which is the cause, or cause and effect, may not be easy. The conditions may share the same underlying factor, such as a chemical imbalance in your brain. Perhaps you self-medicate through drugs and alcohol as a way to relieve distressing symptoms of your mental illness, this self-medication can exacerbate both the addiction and the mental illness in a vicious cycle.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment at Resurgence is a compassionate exploration method, which helps identify and follow the treatment pathway that’s right for you.
Examples of the types of co-occurring conditions we treat:
An anxiety sufferer experiences fears that are irrational, yet crippling in nature. This is characterized by persistent worry, fear, helplessness, and hopelessness. Resurgence Recovery Center has treatment solutions that will ease your anxiety, without the assistance of alcohol or drugs.
Bipolar sufferers are known to experience some of the most extreme highs in life, the lowest of lows. These extremes between mania and depression, called “cycling”, are at best unhealthy, but often debilitating. Resurgence Behavioral Health provides diagnosis and treatment solutions if you struggle with addiction and bipolar disorder.
Depression is a mood disorder that many of us experience, for some period or another, in our lives. However, when depression is persistent for a long period of time or is debilitating in nature, it can be deadly, especially when existing simultaneously with substance addiction. Our team at Resurgence is extremely experienced in diagnosing and treating depression combined with substance abuse. We have specific groups and support systems in place to help you, if needed.
A person with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or “OCD,” experiences compulsions or obsessions that are extremely difficult to control. These may take the form of habits and rituals, such as cleaning, or having to maintain a certain sense of order to the point that anything out of place can be maddening. OCD impacts relationships and responsibilities, particularly when it is combined with substance addiction. If you struggle with OCD and addiction, our team at Resurgence will help you receive the latest treatments available.
Trauma that we’ve experienced at some point earlier in our life may manifest in unpleasant memories that recur later on. If you struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), you know the difficulties caused by debilitating flashbacks, nightmares, unwanted memories, and intense emotional symptoms. Sometimes, PTSD sufferers use addictive substances to medicate these symptoms. Although some forms of trauma may be perceived as less catastrophic, they can be just as emotionally damaging as surviving military combat, a natural disaster or a life-threatening accident. PTSD can lead to other health problems besides addiction, such as eating disorders, depression, anxiety, or hyper-sexual behavior.
