CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS TREATMENT

At Florida Center for Recovery (FCR), all clients receive a psychiatric evaluation at the time of admission. If a client's recovery is compounded by mental health issues, an integrated substance addiction and mental health treatment plan is carefully individualized to address multiple conditions.

CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS WE TREAT:

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)/Attention Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and Substance Use Disorders (SUD) often co-occur. Although the cause of the association is unknown, one possible reason is that substance use helps individuals to "self-medicate" the ADD/ADHD symptoms. Therefore the diagnosis and treatment of ADD/ADHD in clients with SUD is essential to help them achieve the best possible treatment outcome. At Florida Center for Recovery an important element of the treatment of SUD and ADD/ADHD is psychoeducation. Having clients learn about ADD disorder and how it affects their functioning, sets the stage for developing an effective therapeutic treatment. In addition to psychoeducation, cognitive behavioral therapy and pharmacotherapy can be recommended to help optimize long-term treatment effectiveness of ADD/ADHD Disorders. The decision regarding the use of pharmacotherapy for a patient with ADD/ADHD and a co-occurring substance use disorder should be made on the basis of a broad clinical assessment and an individual risk-benefit analysis.
Anxiety Disorders (Ads) often co-occur with Substance Use Disorders (SUD). At Florida Center for Recovery clients who are diagnosed with Anxiety Disorders will follow an individualized treatment protocol designed to address both the disease of addiction and the anxiety disorder. This integrated treatment approach focuses on teaching clients on how to cope and manage anxiety in order to reduce stress. Psychoeducation sessions are also offered to enhance the client's understanding of the nature of their anxiety. In addition, the decision to use pharmacotherapy is made on an "as needed" basis under the supervision of experienced licensed professionals.
Bipolar Disorder and Substance Use Disorders (SUD) are often related. Although the association of these disorders is unknown, one possible reason is that substance use helps individuals mask the symptoms of the Bipolar Disorder. In other words, alcohol and drugs are abused by the problem user in an attempt to "self-medicate". At Florida Center for Recovery, we provide an integrated specialized treatment plan to address both disorders, providing clients with optimal professional service and care in achieving long term recovery. Treatment may include one-on-one psychotherapy with a mental health professional, counseling sessions with addiction specialists including Psychoeducation, Dual Diagnosis support groups, family counseling and holistic therapy. In addition to counseling, medication may be prescribed on an "as needed" basis under the supervision of experienced licensed professionals.
Depression often co-occurs with Substance Use Disorders (SUD). At Florida Center for Recovery clients who are diagnosed with Depression will follow an individualized treatment program designed to address both the disease of addiction and the depression. This integrated treatment approach may include: behavioral therapy (concentrates on client's actions), cognitive therapy (focuses on client's thoughts) and interpersonal therapy (looks at client's relationships with others). Psychoeducation sessions are also offered to enhance the client's understanding of the nature of their depression. In addition to counseling, medication may be prescribed on an "as needed" basis under the supervision of experienced licensed professionals.
According to The Journal of Anxiety Disorder, 25 percent of those who seek treatment for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) also meet the criteria for a substance use disorder. OCD is an anxiety disorder in which an individual experiences recurring thoughts that cause irrational fears and anxiety. At Florida Center for Recovery clients who are diagnosed with OCD receive specialized therapeutic treatment to address both the substance abuse and the mental health condition. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is utilized to teach clients how to identify and change negative behaviors. The ultimate goal of this therapeutic treatment is to eliminate the irrational anxiety associated with specific situations or items. If needed, the client's physician may prescribe medications.
Numerous studies have documented a correlation between trauma exposure and substance abuse. The theory is that while trying to self-medicate with alcohol and drugs to manage the distress associated with the effects of trauma, individuals often develop an addiction. At FCR clients whose recovery is compromised by trauma will receive specialized trauma treatment (Rapid Resolution Therapy®) with Dr. Jon Connelly.
