New Hampshire Dual Diagnosis Rehab Centers

Many people who suffer from mental illness are far more likely to become addicted to drugs or alcohol. Given the complex nature of this relationship, it can be difficult for people who suffer from both conditions to find the treatment and relief that they need. However, dual diagnosis rehab centers in New Hampshire have been created in order to help people treat their mental illness while also overcoming addiction at the same time.

Depression Is Not As Prevalent In New Hampshire

In the State of New Hampshire, clinical depression is not as prevalent as it is throughout the rest of the country. Less than 7 percent of the population suffers from clinical depression, and less than 7 percent of the population has suffered from severe psychological trauma. While New Hampshire does not have the same societal problem with clinical depression and psychological issues that other states do throughout the country, it is still important that residents have access to rehab centers and addiction treatment programs that are designed specifically for them. Even people who do not have a diagnosed medical condition might be more at risk for becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol. In New Hampshire, residents report having 3.0 to 3.4 mentally unwell days throughout each month. This can also increase a person’s odds for becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol.

The Link Between Mental Illness And Substance Abuse

Mental illness and addiction is linked in many ways, and there are a variety of reasons why someone who suffers from mental illness might be more prone to addictive behavior. For instance, someone who is clinically depressed may not actually know that they need medical treatment for their condition. Instead, New Hampshire residents may find that alcohol and drugs help to temporarily make them feel better and they end up self-medicating their condition. This is a dangerous choice, and can quickly and easily lead to addiction. On top of it leading to addiction, abuse of drugs and alcohol can actually increase the severity of the depression symptoms. Ultimately, addiction can increase the presence of mental illness and being addicted while also battling a mental illness can make it more difficult to treat both conditions.

Dual Diagnosis Rehab Centers Were Developed For Both

With this in mind, New Hampshire dual diagnosis rehab centers were developed. Addiction treatment professionals noted that traditional treatment methods were not helpful or beneficial for people who suffered from untreated mental illnesses. Many of these patients could not remain sober for the long term. New Hampshire dual diagnosis rehab centers provide patients with the medical treatment and care that they need for their mental illness, while also giving them the resources they need in order to battle addiction. Most treatment plans involve medical care and intervention as well as therapy, providing patients with a well-rounded approach to rehabilitation.
