An Overview of Mental Health & Substance abuse
Treating Dual-Diagnosis?How Does It Work?
Over 45% of people in America struggle with dual-diagnosis. Those with mental illness are twice as likely to suffer from substance abuse disorder than the general public. Knowing these numbers, Above It All Treatment Network understands the importance of providing true, dual-diagnosis treatment options for those who have a co-occuring mental illness alongside addiction. Our network of facility partners offer truly individualized dual-diagnosis treatment in California to help you recover once & for all from both substance abuse and mental health issues.
Substance abuse does not always present by itself. Sometimes, there are other mental health conditions that present right alongside it. The problem is, when multiple conditions are obvious at the same time, the symptoms of one can mask the other, making it hard to identify the true issue. Because of this, the underlying problem may sometimes go unrecognized and untreated, with treatment focusing entirely on the symptoms rather than the root cause.
Dual-diagnosis treatment provides an answer to this, and a way to ensure that all mental health issues are identified and treated. At Above It All Treatment Network, we are proud to provide dual diagnosis care through our network of facility partners. We invite you to learn more about some of these complex scenarios, and about how hope and healing are ultimately achievable. Reach out now & get the help you need once and for all.

What is Dual-Diagnosis?Why is Treatment Needed?
Co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis is when someone experiences a mental illness and substance abuse at the same time. Proper treatment requires all issues—not just addiction—to be identified, diagnosed and ultimately addressed.
The list of potential co-occurring disorders is a long one, and includes everything from depression and bipolar disorder to PTSD and anxiety. An important note is that the cause-and-effect relationship between these different conditions is often hard to identify. Sometimes, there is a shared underlying factor—like an abnormality in brain chemistry—that causes the different conditions. In other cases, the issue may be one of self-medication; for example, an individual may turn to alcohol or to drugs as a way to soothe and mitigate the symptoms of anxiety, OCD or depression. Dual diagnosis care can help bring clarity to these complicated relationships.
A Few Common Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders
How to treat dual-diagnosis
Above All Recovery’s network of facility partners treats a wide range of co-occurring disorders. Here are a few examples of the most common co-ocurring mental disorders our partner programs treat:
Everyone feels sad from time to time; this is a normal and even a healthy part of being a human. Persistent or debilitating melancholy, however, may go beyond mere emotion. In fact, it may be the sign of a serious, chronic mood disorder. Depression, when left untreated, can affect all areas of life—sleeping, eating, work, relationships, and more.
Bipolar disorder is a mental health issue that is characterized by extreme shifts between mania (high energy and elevated mood) and depression (low energy and mood). While we all have our ups and downs, those with bipolar disorder may swing from extreme to extreme fairly frequently. Above It All Treatment Network’s partner programs offer diagnosis and treatment for those who are struggling with this chronic condition.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
When we experience trauma, we can sometimes carry unpleasant memories with us for the rest of our lives. Those with PTSD have more than just unpleasant memories: They have intrusive, unwanted memories, flashbacks and nightmares, as well as other ongoing emotional symptoms. Diagnosis and treatment can provide relief. Those who most commonly face PTSD include soldiers, those who have lived through abuse, accident survivors, etc.
As with depression, there is a significant difference between everyday emotions (occasional worry or tension, in this case) and persistent, often debilitating symptoms, such as crippling worry or irrational fear. Those with anxiety problems may have sustainable, worsening nervousness or stress. Our facility partners can provide tools for coping with anxiety, without the need of drugs or alcohol.
