Mental Health Therapies
More than half of all drug and alcohol addicts are suffering from a mental disorder on top of their chemical dependence, making them a dual-diagnosis patient. Focusing solely on the addiction during rehab is a shortsighted mistake and one that is likely to end in a discouraging relapse. Being that many addictions are born from a preexisting mental condition, such as depression or post-traumatic disorder, the most effective course of rehab treats both the mental disorder and the addiction simultaneously.
We employ an extensive and comprehensive range of mental health therapy solutions at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches. Our goal is to change the way a patient sees themselves, the world around them and the way they react to adverse or stressful situations. We work tirelessly with patients to move past traumatic experiences and other mental impediments that keep driving them back to substance abuse.
