Affordable Recovery from Co-existing Conditions

Are you suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction? Have you tried rehabilitation but relapsed thereafter? Is it difficult to detach yourself from alcohol or substance abuse after you’ve taken steps to treat the addiction?
People suffering from co-occurring disorders have become a growing population among the drug and alcohol addiction community. It has become more commonplace to see someone suffering from addiction because of a co-occurring, underlying mental illness.

Rehabilitation outcomes for people struggling with addiction are considerably lower if they are also suffering with a mental illness and the mental illness is left untreated. It is necessary to properly diagnose these dual conditions so a proper rehabilitation program can be outlined and followed.
Fortunately at Sanctuary Mauritius, we have a highly qualified team of psychiatrists, psychologists, physicians and counselors to treat patients suffering from co-occurring disorders.

Common Illnesses and Addictions Often Seen in Dual Diagnosis Treatment
It is important to understand that just because someone has not been diagnosed with a mental illness and may not even be presently aware of the condition, it can still exist and be part of the reason the person is struggling with addiction.
These are the common mental illnesses found in patients suffering from a co-occurring disorder:

  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar

These are the common addictions found in patients with co-occurring disorders:

  • Alcoholism
  • Eating disorders
  • Heroin addiction
  • Cocaine addiction
  • Crystal meth addiction
  • Methadone addiction
  • Prescription drug addiction
  • Recreational substance (club drug) addiction

Challenges in Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Dual diagnosis patients suffer from a unique set of challenges and are at a higher risk for suicide if left untreated. The symptoms of a mental illness and an addiction can mimic each other and thereby create confusion in their proper assessment and treatment. A drug addiction can mask a potential mental health problem and thus make it far more debilitating to the individual.

Full Treatment for Dual Diagnosis Conditions
Studies show that if the mental illness is not treated effectively and concurrently with the addiction, the patient’s chances of lasting recovery are significantly reduced. This is why the first step of any rehab patient at Sanctuary Mauritius is to assess for a co-occurring disorder and properly diagnosis it.
