Treatment For Co-occurring Substance Use And Mental Health Disorders
It’s always the right time to ask for help
At Recovery Centers of America, we’re here to guide you to relief from your mental illness symptoms. The first step starts here: Seeking help. Everyone deserves to live a happy, healthy life – but struggling with a mental illness can take the joy out of life. In the United States, almost half of adults (46.4%) will experience a mental illness in their lifetime, yet only 41% of the people who had a mental disorder in the past year received professional health care or other services.
At RCA, we provide dual diagnosis treatment for co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders. We also provide treatment if you are struggling with a mental illness and do not have substance use disorder. We understand the difficulties that come along with living with a mental illness and we’re here to help. We also understand you have other responsibilities and may need flexibility with your treatment. That’s why we provide mental health and addiction treatment both in-person and online via HIPAA compliant web and video conferencing.
Every clinician here at RCA is a licensed mental health professional, skilled in treating mental health disorders. And, because we accept most major insurance providers, you’ll get affordable, great care here. We offer mental illness treatment through our outpatient Program in PHP, IOP, and GOP levels.
Our team treats the following
(but not limited to):
- Anxiety disorders
- Trauma and stress-related disorders
- Bipolar and related disorders
- Personality disorders
- Other mental disorders
Treating mental illness
We know it isn’t easy reaching out and asking for help for mental illness, but you deserve to live a fulfilling life you’re proud of. Recovery Centers of America can help you get there. Our licensed mental health professionals work with you one-on-one to provide customized therapy sessions. You’ll feel comfortable in this safe space, where you can open up and talk about what’s on your mind.
Our therapists provide strategies and techniques to combat negativity or consuming thoughts to combat the control mental illness symptoms have on your day-to-day life.
Essential mental health and addiction treatment, in-person or virtually
In addition to our in-person mental health and addiction treatment, we also provide treatment virtually via HIPAA compliant web and video conferencing. You’ll still receive the same evidence-based, accredited treatment RCA is known for – just from your home.
Treating mental illness while in recovery
You’ve come a long way in your journey to recovery – it’s important that your mental health wellness is robust and keeps you on the right path. We can help with that, too.
It’s not uncommon for someone suffering from a mental health disorder to use drugs or alcohol to self-medicate. There are likely feelings, emotions, or situations that the person is trying to bury or numb with drugs or alcohol.
So as you continue your journey, it’s important to address the mental illness to increase the likelihood of reaching and maintaining recovery. Our team here at RCA will integrate your recovery into your mental health treatment through individual counseling, helpful tools and strategies, and peer support.
Here, you’ll feel comfortable enough to discuss how you feel alcohol or drugs played a role in your life without worrying about judgment or consequence, as your peers will be in this stage, too. As we work to create new recovery goals, we’ll also integrate new mental health goals.
- Managing stress. Stress will always be a part of life – so the best thing you can do is learn how to combat it with healthy actionable steps. This way, you’ll be able to tolerate stress without feeling like you need to drink or use drugs, or without letting your thoughts drag you under.
- Accepting and learning to live with negative feelings. Turning to drugs or alcohol to numb unpleasant memories or feelings may feel like the only way for you to cope – but it’s not. We can show you how to accept, cope, and move on from these feelings without the use of drugs or alcohol.
- Identifying your triggers. Triggers are common with both addictions and mental illness – so you need to have a plan to tackle these triggers when they pop up. We’ll help you develop an action plan for these times.
- Discovering new activities. What does your life look like now that you’re in recovery? Maybe you don’t know – and that’s OK. We will guide you toward trying new things you might not have ever considered for yourself.
