54 Nebraska Dual Diagnosis Rehab Centers

Nebraska Dual Diagnosis Rehab CentersAddiction to drugs or alcohol does have a distinct physical component. Addictive substances create changes in the body that cause a dependence upon the substances for physical comfort and highs. While physical dependence plays a major part in addiction, physicality is not the whole of a substance user’s disease. A person usually has a reason that he or she began abusing drugs in the first place or a psychological basis for the physical addiction, commonly making treatment for only the addiction unhelpful.

Mental illness, such as depression and bipolar disorder, go hand in hand with substance abuse, and diagnosing the underlying mental disorder that leads a person to use substances is essential to an addict’s recovery.
