According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over 7 million individuals experience both a substance use disorder and a mental disorder.

Treating addiction is not a simple process. There is no standard for treatment, and a method effective for one patient may be ineffective for another. Because of this, Gateway Foundation Carbondale offers a multitude of addiction therapy services that can attack addiction from all angles. Thankfully, the range of treatments we offer help to provide effective options for each client. Gateway Carbondale can find a successful treatment plan for nearly everyone.

The Role of Therapy in Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Psychotherapy, and more importantly, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, is crucial in dual diagnosis treatment. Therapy teaches coping skills and helps to change negative thoughts and behavioral patterns. Pairing therapy with other methods of treatment often leads to successful recovery.

Understanding Your Treatment Options

As we said, transparent treatment and philosophies are important to us. Each of the therapies we’ve mentioned is effective in different ways. Some of them you may be familiar with, and others may sound out of this world. But we are here to help you understand. Dual diagnosis treatment is a broad term for the treatment of both addiction and mental illness. Since they can often accompany each other and feed off one another, making each other much worse, dual diagnosis treatment treats both simultaneously. Addiction and mental illness can often be present simultaneously in a patient. Recent practices have shifted to address these issues together and not separately.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of talk therapy that stresses acceptance of personal emotions and dealing with them in healthy, proactive ways. Motivational Interviewing is meant to create a meaningful lifestyle change by uncovering personal motivators. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) are common forms of addiction therapy meant to restructure thought patterns concerning addiction triggers. Family therapy is a talk therapy that involves family and affected loved ones along with the patient. Trauma therapy seeks to heal from past trauma that may lead to substance abuse.

The rate of relapse after treatment is between 40% and 60%.
Benefits of Group Therapy

4 Support – Members of group therapy often become integral members of each other’s support system.
