When a patient’s underlying mental health or medical concerns have led to a life dominated by addiction behavior and controlled by the need for a drug, there is little point in treating the addiction alone.

The opportunity for an addict to receive treatment for their addiction, at the same time that they are treated for underlying mental and physical health conditions, is not available at every drug rehab Utah. The drug and alcohol treatment programs which offer dual diagnosis treatment options are among the more advanced, reputable and best staffed organizations, and will offer the patient an excellent chance at a long-term and fully-realized recovery.

When a patient’s underlying mental health or medical concerns have led to a life dominated by addiction behavior and controlled by the need for a drug, there is little point in treating the addiction alone. It is critical that the patient receive treatment that will address all of their physical health and mental health concerns at once.  If not, an addiction therapy, however well designed and well delivered, will not be enough to stop the patient from re-engaging in addiction behavior down the road.

There may not be an immediate fall-back into addiction or substance abuse. In fact, many addicts who do not enjoy the benefits of dual diagnosis and treatment are able to maintain a sober lifestyle for a few years after they exit recovery; however, when the underlying issues are not treated and addressed and triggers begin to re-emerge in the addict’s life, eventually the avoidance and control skills they may have learned in therapy will not suffice. The addict’s mind will recreate an environment in which they must let go of sobriety in order to handle the pressures, stresses and judgments that may come from within, or from the world in which they find themselves. What can lead to isolation and a bad day for some, can lead to a return to drugs and drinking for others. The end game, which is sadly often fatal, is one in which the addict returns to a world they once knew, immersed in drugs or alcohol.

When a patient returns to their previous alcohol or drug driven behaviors after being clean for a time, their body is not accustomed to the reintroduction of the unhealthy substance. The chance of overdose is very high when a recovery patient returns, even for one night, to their previous using companions and recreational pursuits; therefore, preventing this from happening is one of the goals of a world-class alcohol recovery and drug treatment program. The skills taught in this kind of environment can truly save a life.
