Drug and alcohol use and abuse often hide symptoms of psychiatric disorders.
According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, 53 % of those addicted to drugs and 37% of those who are alcoholics have at least one co-occurring psychiatric disorder, such as depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, or a personality disorder. For this reason, addiction cannot be successfully treated without diagnosing and treating any underlying psychiatric illness. At the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment Center, we are committed to treating both your addiction and any underlying illness it may be masking.
Our staff is experienced in making dual diagnoses, and we are experts in concurrent treatment. Please call us if you suspect that your addiction is hiding a deeper psychological problem. Without treatment for underlying problems, your recovery is much less likely to succeed. By treating your psychiatric disorder along with your addiction, however, we can give you a greater chance of winning your battle with substance abuse.
Please let us use our expertise with dual diagnosis to help you break free of the dependency that is controlling your life. We are committed to providing integrated treatment for your addiction and other disorders. The staff at our Tampa Helpline facility is ready to take your call right now. Call us at (813) 421-3604 for help.
