Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Williamsport Help for Dual Diagnosis

Williamsport Addiction Treatment Centers

People showing symptoms of dual diagnosis should be referred to any Williamsport Addiction Treatment Centers to manage their condition effectively. Once admitted, the psychiatrist first examines the person s condition. The examination involves holistic assessment (physical, mental, emotional and social), series of interviews and laboratory tests to establish the existence of dual diagnosis. If the person is found to have hallucinations, delusions, or other mental disabilities because of drug overdose, he/she would usually be detoxified first. Once the person gains his/her sanity back, he/she will then be subjected to Williamsport substance abuse programs. These programs are made to help drug addicts realize their condition, accept who they are and cope from the addiction itself.

Other treatments will also be available such as psychopharmacology (medication treatment), psychotherapy (individual, group or family therapy) and behavioral management (made to alter behavior and help a person attain effective coping strategies).

Dual Diagnosis: Mental Disability+ Alcohol Abuse People with mental and/or developmental disabilities are found to have better status today than before. This is because the knowledge of medical practitioners regarding mental health and its alterations is now wider. Though the complete understanding on how the mind works is not yet fully known (It still floats as a mystery even to the most experienced practitioner), health practitioners are still able to competently comprehend the aspects of mental health and provide effective management for every altered condition. Moreover, the availability of health care providers (e.g. nurses, mental health specialists, counselors, psychologists and the likes) and the collaboration of the family to patient care have made all efforts successful in correcting mental and/or developmental disabilities.

In this complex world, people are exposed to different stressors every day. Those with good coping skills find themselves winning every battle they face along the way. On the other hand, those with few to no coping skills struggle in their everyday battle. Some of them breakdown and resort to taking in drugs or alcohol thinking that it could solve their problems.
