    Individuals with substance use disorders and mental health problems are said to suffer from a ‘dual diagnosis’. The most frequently identified mental health issues found in individuals with substance use disorders include anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and schizoaffective disorder.

    Intervention

    An intervention is a meeting held by families and friends of the addicted party, managed by McAlister Institute. It lets the person know that their loved ones are concerned about them. It is intended to make the addicted party agree to get help.

    Interventions are often hosted by a mental health professional in California who knows how to communicate with people dealing with addiction. These intervention services can make all the difference when it comes to getting loved ones to agree to treatment.

    Outpatient

    12-Step Program Facilitation

    Alcoholics Anonymous is responsible for the development of the popular “12 Step Program”. Most substance treatment centers have their own 12 step program designed to help users achieve sobriety. Because of this, most treatment plans follow a similar pattern when broken down.

    The first three steps depend on the patient, so they are more specific and situational. The succeeding four steps center on practical issues brought on by substance abuse. Steps 8 and 9 deal with the social and emotional repercussions of addiction, encouraging patients to make amends to people they have wronged. These are followed by two steps revolving around the further exploration and reinforcement of Steps 1 to 9.

    The last step requires an individual to extend a helping hand to people who are still in the early stages of their recovery.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

    Negative feelings are common in substance abuse disorders. If not recognized, they can cause co-occurring disorders. CBT involves strategies that help to change the thinking and behavioral pattern. It can be administered as a monotherapy as well as a part of combination therapy.
