We Help People Struggling With Dual Diagnosis (Addiction To Drugs & or Alcohol as well as Mental Health Issues) Beat Addiction
Mental health issues and substance use disorders are two issues that are often closely connected within a person with dual diagnosis, often causing feelings of being trapped in the cycle of substance abuse and mental health symptoms. Many individuals who have a mental illness may turn to substance use to “feel better”. For example, a person with clinical depression may use stimulants to simulate artificial happiness and energy, while a person with social anxiety may turn to alcohol abuse or drug use to cope with their discomfort.
At the same time, substance abuse can make pre-existing or underlying mental health conditions worse. Depending on drugs & alcohol can inhibit the development of healthy coping skills, creating a reliance on the substance to function normally.
Drugs & alcohol only work to mask symptoms, and when you quit the substances, these mental health symptoms will return, which is why at Psyclarity Health, we believe that treating both issues in a comprehensive dual diagnosis program will provide the best possible chance for long-term recovery.
Our Trauma Informed Therapies:
At Psyclarity Health, we utilize trauma-informed therapies throughout each patient’s treatment program, working hard to ensure every one of our patients feels safe, listened-to, and supported as they heal the underlying causes of addiction and gain new strategies for living life free from addiction. We foster open communication and answer all questions thoroughly, empowering our patients to make decisions regarding their own treatment. Some of the trauma-informed therapies we offer for Los Angeles and California residents include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of talk therapy that helps teach healthy coping skills, focusing on the way thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes affect your feelings and actions. In CBT for addiction treatment you will learn to identify and manage triggers and unhelpful thoughts, as you work to recognize and make changes to your behavioral patterns.
Cognitive Processing Therapy
Cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy that is delivered by a trauma-informed therapist. It is used to reduce symptoms of PTSD, by teaching how to evaluate and change upsetting thoughts that you have had since your trauma. These changes can affect the way you feel and behave as you learn to understand trauma-based triggers and reactions.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps patients learn to interact with the world in more positive ways, introducing stress management skills, core mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation. These healthy coping mechanisms can empower you to make healthier decisions for a better quality of life.
Diverse Psychoeducational Groups
Psychoeducational groups are similar to a classroom in some ways, providing information on a particular topic or teaching skills to a group of patients. Some examples include cognitive behavioral therapy, anger management, life skills, and communication skills training. These groups are led by an effective leader, using discussion, seminars, and problem-solving exercises to encourage group learning. At Psyclarity, our clientele is made up of male patients, so we also incorporate gender-specific concerns into treatments.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an effective type of treatment for those with PTSD, helping patients process and view traumatic memories objectively. By stimulating bilateral eye movements a trained therapist will ask patients to evaluate their emotional responses as they relive events from the past. This technique, combined with visualization techniques, helps patients reprocess memories to minimize negative emotions like fear, panic, and sadness.
Addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life, taking a toll on the body while affecting mental and emotional health, impacting your social life and support system, and taking a toll on your overall sense of well-being. Incorporating holistic treatments into a comprehensive treatment plan can strengthen the mind-body connection, while reducing stress, improving mood, and gaining
