Trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and more
Treating the Whole Person
You can’t be truly healthy unless you’re healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally. While you may arrive at treatment eager to focus on your primary concern, whether its substance abuse or emotional trauma, these are frequently connected to mental health issues. By also addressing any co-occurring conditions — from anxiety and depression to bipolar or PTSD — it decreases your risk of relapse and makes long-term sobriety achievable.
Addiction and mental health issues often go hand-in-hand. Undiagnosed mental health disorders can lead someone to “self-medicate” as a way to manage symptoms, or someone with an addiction may find mental health conditions are exacerbated by substance use. A dual diagnosis happens when two co-occurring disorders are identified. Treating both together offers the best possibility of true, lasting recovery.Dual Diagnosis
Often expressed as persistent unhappiness, hopelessness, a loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities, difficulty concentrating, insomnia or oversleeping, fatigue, and anxiety, depression can seriously impact a person’s quality of life. The condition can be caused by a number of factors, including trauma or hormonal shifts, and severe depression can be debilitating if not treated by an experienced professional.Depression
While we all feel anxious from time to time, those with an anxiety disorder experience intense, sustained anxiety and nervousness. They may struggle to keep jobs and maintain relationships, withdrawing from social connections and places that trigger their disorder. Common symptoms include excited, intense, and enduring fear or concern in circumstances where a person typically wouldn’t feel scared or worried.Anxiety
Bipolar disorder, previously known as manic depression, manifests in periods of mania (euphoria and hyperactivity) followed by periods of deep depression. This serious psychological condition causes individuals to experience extreme shifts in mood, attitude, behavior, and energy. Sufferers find their manic highs and depressive lows can last for prolonged periods of time, impacting them personally and professionally.Bipolar Disorder
Trauma can be the result of a single event or a series of traumatic events repeated over time causing an individual to become overwhelmed with painful, frightening, or loathing emotions. It can be triggered by physical, sexual, verbal, or emotional abuse. When unaddressed, it can have lasting adverse effects on the sufferer’s functioning and mental, physical, social, emotional, or spiritual well-being.Emotional Trauma
Post-traumatic stress disorder is an anxiety disorder that stems from a life-threatening event or psychological trauma including combat, violent crime, or natural disasters. PTSD can manifest as nightmares, intense remembrances of the event, challenges in falling or staying asleep, feelings of unreasonable anger, and constant edginess, so sufferers often avoid situations that may remind them of the traumatic event.PTSD
Codependency & Control Issues
Codependency is an emotional disorder that causes sufferers to ignore their own needs while constantly fulfilling the needs of others. A sufferer may forfeit his or her own well-being and values in the pursuit of assisting someone else, result in feeling out of control. This is a learned behavior that comes as a result of dysfunctional relationship patterns and can often be passed down in families for generations.Codependency & Control Issues
We all have trouble getting along with certain people or have disagreements with friends and loved ones. But a pattern of maladaptive coping behaviors that makes it difficult to connect with others on a regular basis —romantically, on the job, or in social settings —can be a sign of ongoing relational issues.Relational Issues
Intimacy & Sexual Struggles
These disorders impair a person’s ability to create healthy attachments. Whether they manifest as the obsessive need for a relationship or the compulsive desire to engage in sexual activity, these struggles often cause significant life disruption and result in an individual acting out and harming others. Many intimacy and sexual disorders stem from attachment issues, abuse, and trauma from childhood.Intimacy & Sexual Struggles
