It is one thing to treat an addiction, and another to treat the cause of the addiction.

This is what dual diagnosis attempts to achieve. Addiction is a disease, and the substances that people abuse are varied. The one thing that all addicts have in common is their inability to put their addiction in check. If rehab treats the “what” of an addiction, it is safe to say that dual diagnosis treats the “why” of an addiction. As such, dual diagnosis treatment for Delaware patients is an effective remedy in helping prevent future relapse.

Some of today’s effective addiction treatment centers address both the addiction and underlying mental disorders like depression, anxiety, and mood swings. Without treating the mental disorder, a patient can successfully complete rehab and then relapse at some future date.

Relapse Triggers

There are specific elements that cause people to engage, and even return, to substance abuse. These catalysts are called relapse triggers by another name. Consider the following examples of a relapse trigger.

1. A family member, relative, or acquaintance dies in an accident. A person can drown themselves in alcohol or drug usage to quell the pain of losing that person.

2. Combat veterans, returning home from war, are candidates for the type of stresses that can lead to alcohol or drug addiction.

3. Anyone suffering from acute pain may become addicted to painkillers even while following the doctor’s prescription. If that pain continues beyond their prescription, it triggers the need to find an alternative painkiller. Sometimes, people turn to heroin.

Unfortunately, there are patients suffering from a mental disorder that never gets diagnosed or treated. Life is difficult for these people because they can never quite put their finger on what troubles them. Even after successfully completing rehab, the still feel that something is troubling them, urging them on to relapse, but they cannot quite figure out what it is. Unraveling the puzzle is what dual diagnosis offers. Unfortunately, not all rehab centers offer this critical approach.

This is why it is so important to conduct thorough research on the center you will trust your own or a loved one’s sobriety with. The reality remains that an untreated illness is always likely to lead a person back to relapse and drug abuse. The reason being it is likely what contributed to their addiction in the first place. Unfortunately, it rings true that addiction can bring about mental illnesses that the addict did not have to begin with. So, it can be a vicious cycle—drugs can lead to mental illness, and mental illness can lead to drugs.

Keep a sharp eye out for yourself or a loved one. It they have completed rehab and are still depressed or experiencing anxiety, there could be a missed opportunity to treat a mental disorder. The path to sobriety begins by admitting there is a drug or alcohol addiction, then seeking and finding the right type of rehab that offers dual diagnosis. Otherwise, the time spent in rehab may be as naught if there is an underlying mental issue.
