Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Every addiction sufferer is different, with a host of factors contributing to their disease, including genetics, external pressures, past trauma and the access and exposure they have to addictive substances. Many addictions are triggered or worsened by underlying, often undiagnosed, psychological, mental and/or emotional problems. Anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder and post traumatic stress disorder may all contribute to a person’s substance abuse.
Attempting to treat addiction without also addressing these issues will almost certainly result in a failed recovery. The team at Fairwinds Treatment Center uses a unique dual diagnosis methodology, offering each patient a personalized combination of clinical treatment and therapeutic counseling to promote comprehensive healing and a lasting recovery.
