The need for dual diagnosis treatment programs in Colorado Springs, CO, continues to grow. The NDIC reported that drug-related treatment admissions in Colorado are at high levels as compared to those nationwide. The 1999 and 2000 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA) showed that of surveyed adults in Colorado, 8.9 percent of individuals reported illicit drug abuse in the previous month, which is higher than the 6.3% reported nationwide. Colorado Springs’ central location makes it easy for drug transporters to bring illegal substances into the area. The population in Colorado Springs is also highly diverse, making it easy for drug traffickers to infiltrate the area unnoticed.

What is Dual Diagnosis?

A dual diagnosis means that you have both a substance use disorder diagnosis and a mental health diagnosis. This is common, and many people are able to overcome addiction in a dual diagnosis program.

The Basics of Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Mental health and addiction treatment centers that provide inpatient dual diagnosis treatment are focused on both the addiction needs and any underlying mental health conditions. When you are in a dual diagnosis rehab center, you might encounter:

  • Group therapy sessions to learn more about addiction and get peer support.
  • Individual therapy to get a better understanding of your strengths and goals.
  • An introduction to holistic healing methods to calm the mind and body.
  • People in addiction treatment and recovery who are much like yourself.

Mental illness and drug addiction are often co-occurring disorders. The National Library of Medicine reports that although there are high rates of mental illness and substance use disorder disorders, there are limited statistics regarding the success of treatment for those with a dual diagnosis. Therefore, it is essential to learn the underlying reasons as to why somebody has turned to substance use disorder. Figuring this out can, in turn, help the long-term recovery process in residential dual diagnosis treatment centers.

What to Expect In a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Facility

You may be nervous about entering a dual diagnosis treatment center in Colorado Springs, CO. You can expect to be treated with respect and dignity when you begin treatment for mental illness and drug abuse. At the start, you may need a detox facility to kickstart your journey of recovery. Once you have safely removed substances from your body, you will move on to a short-term rehabilitation facility. As you prepare to return to the community, it is important to:

  • Build your support network of people you trust who are in recovery.
  • Work with an individual therapist to continue the progress you have made.
  • Learn what your relapse triggers are and look for ways to reduce your risk of a relapse.
  • Have a safe place to live where you feel supported.

You will work closely with a counselor to develop your next steps in treatment. You may need a long-term inpatient dual diagnosis treatment center before you return home. Speak with your counselor and be honest about your ability to return home. The chances of a relapse are much higher if you go home before you are fully ready.

Relapse Prevention Strategies to Reduce Your Risk

In dual diagnosis treatment centers, you will hear about relapse prevention strategies. Strategies can be almost anything that improves your mental and physical health while helping you remain sober. For example, you may discover a new type of exercise that you love or find comfort in 12-step meetings. Common relapse prevention strategies include:

  • Finding a sponsor in a 12-step group.
  • Working with an individual therapist to address ongoing needs.
  • Trying out a new hobby, craft, or sport.
  • Meeting a friend for lunch to talk about life.

Relapse prevention strategies only work when you are honest with those trying to support you. Mental health and individualized substance use disorder treatment centers will guide you along the way. Recovery is going to take time, and you will have difficult days. However, when you are clear about your desire to abuse substances, it becomes easier to help you figure out a solution. You will get stronger as you navigate your new life being sober. The people you meet will become your support, and you will discover that you can live a full life while in recovery.
