Co-Occuring Disorder Treatment

Suwanee Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment for Addiction

Addressing Anxiety, Depression & the Underlying Causes of Addiction

Addiction is not something that just happens. Studies show that most people who develop an addiction have an underlying mental health condition. Depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders may have contributed to the addiction or developed while abusing drugs or alcohol.

Most traditional drug rehab centers focus strongly on treating the symptoms of chemical dependency. While detox is important to recovery, it does almost nothing to address the underlying psychological triggers behind the addictive behavior. As a result, a large percentage of people who complete a professional detox program without also treating the mental health issues are likely to relapse back into a cycle of addictive drug or alcohol use.

At The Carter Treatment Center, we realize there are often deep-seated underlying psychological factors that contribute to a person’s addictive use of drugs or alcohol. If those psychological triggers can be resolved, the need to take addictive substances is removed.

Treating Addiction at the Source

Everyone has different triggers that compel them to abuse drugs and/or alcohol. Identifying these triggers is critical to the treatment process. We work closely with our patients to diagnose any co-occurring disorders that may be accompanying their addiction. Based on this information, we create a personalized addiction treatment program that suits each person’s unique needs.

There are many different underlying problems that can cause you to turn to drugs or alcohol. These include:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Childhood trauma
  • Uncontrolled stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chemical imbalance
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

You’ll work with an addiction specialist through one-on-one therapy to uncover and resolve the underlying factors that led to addictive substance abuse. You’ll also learn powerful new coping skills for dealing with life’s stresses and challenges in a positive and healthy manner.

Once a patient understands the thought processes that motivate them to abuse substances, they will be able to take a more active role in their recovery. Building on feelings of self-worth and love lay a strong foundation for sobriety.
