[Alpine, June 26, 2014] - Alpine Recovery Lodge, a center created by the leading specialists in the field, addresses the underlying issues that result in alcoholism and addiction in their patients through Dual Diagnosis. The center is equipped with a professional medical staff, including extraordinarily gifted, licensed therapists and counselors adept at treating such disorders.
According to the center, a dual-diagnosis disorder is the presence of both a mental illness and a substance abuse issue in the same person. The center cites research that states as much as 53% of all people with a diagnosis of mental illness, also suffer from a substance abuse problem.
Patients at Alpine Recovery Lodge receive treatment for both conditions simultaneously, as mental issues often exist in conjunction with substance abuse. The center helps patients with a range of conditions that may contribute to alcoholism and substance abuse, such as chemical imbalances and trauma.
Alpine Recovery Lodge believes these conditions have close links to alcoholism, anger, and depression, and that treating just one issue may exacerbate the problem and prolong recovery time. The center believes that an integrated approach to co-occurring disorders provides the greatest likelihood of success for treating patients with a drug or alcohol addiction, as well as mental and emotional issues.
According to representatives at the center, an accurate diagnosis and treatment strategy allows understanding, awareness, and an opportunity for change. The center provides patients with education and research on their conditions, and how it affects their minds and bodies.
The staff stands ready to provide for the needs of a patient struggling with dual-diagnosis disorder, as well as their loved ones. The center understands the role family and friends play in the treatment process, and will help create an environment that is conducive to wellness and healing.
