Talk with Someone who Understands Drug Abuse and Anxiety

How do We Treat Drug Use and Anxiety – Dual Diagnosis Treatment
When someone has a substance abuse problem and an anxiety disorder, we refer to it as a dual diagnosis. If you treat one part of the problem but not the other, it can cause you to fall back into the same situation you are in now. By treating the substance abuse and learning the mechanisms to cope with your anxiety, you can live a drug-free life.
Dual diagnosis situations require prompt and efficient treatment. Otherwise, you are more likely to succumb to the habit, often spiraling out of control. Overdose becomes likely; dysfunction becomes probable. If not well treated, it can quickly become a condition that is life-threatening.
Our admissions coordinators will find a treatment program just for you. This individualized treatment program will include group therapy, individual therapy as well as nutritional counseling. We will teach you how to recognize your anxiety symptoms and give you the tools to alleviate the anxiety yourself before it becomes overwhelming.
If you are suffering from anxiety and drug abuse, it is time to seek help. You are not alone. Millions of Americans suffer from various kinds of dual diagnosis conditions. Call us. We know what you are going through, and we can help.

Can I Stop Taking the Drugs on My Own
When a person using a particular drug suddenly stops the use, they are going to face some serious complications or withdrawal symptoms. Whenever someone is addicted to a particular drug, whether illegal or not, the body gets “used” to the drug and may react adversely in case there is a sudden halt on the use of the drug.
In cases where you are grappling with withdrawal symptoms after ending the use of a drug, we will recommend certain treatment options that will help you overcome your situation. A medically supervised detox is the best way to clear your mind and body to begin the treatment. When your mind is altered by drugs the treatment for your drug abuse and anxiety is much less effective.
What is the Best Drug Rehab to Treat Anxiety and Drug Abuse
Generally, for co-occurring disorders, we are going to recommend inpatient treatment options. We give our patients the best possible treatments and care; it is important to keep in mind that these disorders cannot be treated overnight. Evidence-based treatment is the most efficient for co-occurring disorders.
The best treatments for co-occurring disorders will occur in a relaxed setting where all distractions are removed, and you can concentrate on your recovery. Our rehab centers give you the opportunity to get away from all of your bad habits and triggers. You can focus on you and your recovery.
After treatment, we will offer you continued after-care service on your road to full recovery. Our Alumni support team will provide moral support and also serve as accountability partners for the duration of the treatment. They will keep you on track to prevent you from relapsing into the old destructive habits.
