Huntington Beach and surrounding Orange County, CA, are famous for their professional surfing events, the nine-mile stretch of beautiful beach, and energetic nightlife. But, like many other areas of the country, Orange County is also being impacted by high rates of drug and alcohol abuse.

Recent statistics report that Orange County sees nearly 6000 hospitalizations and 700 deaths every year due to drug overdoses. Over 50% of opioid overdoses in Orange County are attributed to OxyContin and other prescription opioids. Unfortunately, however, many in Huntington Beach that are seeking treatment for substance use disorder suffer from undiagnosed mental health disorders as well.

What is Dual Diagnosis?

Most people with a substance use disorder disorder are diagnosed with co-occurring disorders involving mental illness. Drug and alcohol abusers who complete a detox program are often found to have major depression, bipolar disorder, or other mental health issues. Consequently, an addiction psychiatrist will recommend the person enter a dual diagnosis treatment facility that offers both substance use disorder and mental health programs.

Residential Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers in Huntington Beach, CA

A dual diagnosis rehab center provides 24/7 mental health and addiction treatment that is needed to address a substance use disorder disorder and a mental illness at the same time. A dual diagnosis program involves the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and other therapeutic techniques to help patients recover.

MAT involves patients getting prescribed medications necessary to relieve symptoms of a mental illness, withdrawals, and cravings that may continue throughout completion of their dual diagnosis treatment. Regular meetings with an addiction psychiatrist ensure medications are actively improving symptoms and contributing to their recovery.

Mental Illness and Drug Abuse

People turn to drugs and alcohol as a way to self-medicate. Depression, anxiety, personality disorders, and PTSD are the most common mental illnesses that substance use disorderrs attempt to mask with drugs or alcohol. Dual diagnosis treatment programs in Huntington Beach are designed to identify all mental health problems affecting a substance use disorderr after they are no longer under the influence of drugs.

In addition, a substance use disorderr may be wrongly diagnosed with a mental illness because addictive drugs make them act as if they have it—the most common example is schizophrenia. A mental illness and drug abuse psychologist can accurately diagnose the patient only once the patient has detoxed and is no longer under the influence of drugs.
