An alcohol or drug dependency controls every aspect of your life. Therefore, freeing yourself from addiction requires help from highly-trained professionals. If you’re struggling to conquer your addiction, it’s important to seek residential treatment right away.
Connection Between Mental Health and Addiction
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports a high comorbidity between drug abuse and mental illness. They claim that mood disorders increase a person’s likelihood of developing addiction. However, treating mood disorders reduces the risk of future drug use. Likewise, treating dependency issues prevents future mental illness development as well. In other words, addiction treatment and mental health therapy work together.
Overall, not everyone who abuses drugs suffers from a mental illness. However, those who do find it nearly impossible to stop using without first addressing underlying issues. This is one reason why residential treatment is so important.
Furthermore, during inpatient treatment, we address things that initially led to your addictive behavior. Only then will you have the best chances of getting clean and remaining sober.
Escaping Everyday Stress
It’s hard to overcome addiction when you’re dealing with everyday stress. Between work and family responsibilities, you already have enough on your plate. Fortunately, residential treatment allows you to distance yourself from these things in order to fully focus on recovery.
Additionally, toxic relationships can hamper your recovery. For example, you might be in an abusive relationship and use drugs or alcohol as a coping mechanism. Or, maybe you find it difficult to quit because your peers are constantly encouraging you to use. Regardless, inpatient therapy places a temporary barrier between yourself and those negative individuals who might counteract your hard work.
Learning New Coping Mechanisms
Once you’re sober, you will still face temptation every day. Unless you learn how to healthily cope with triggers, a relapse is very likely. Therefore, during residential treatment, we can show you new coping mechanisms to help you manage these unrelenting urges.
In addition, individual backgrounds and experiences dictate how people respond to treatment. Some may develop the necessary skills in less than 30 days, while others require 60 to 90 days. Rather than rush you through rehab, we customize treatment plans for your unique circumstances. We’ve found these specific conditions are ideal for achieving sobriety.
