If you or a loved one is battling a substance abuse problem or an addiction, finding out how to take the first steps towards recovery and sobriety can be very difficult. Trying to quit drugs or alcohol while dealing with a co-occurring disorder is especially hard. This leads to needing a dual diagnosis treatment center. A co-occurring disorder is a mental health condition that occurs in addition to addiction. This means that you are struggling with a substance abuse issue while suffering from a mental health disorder.
Mental health issues and addiction commonly occur together, making treatment slightly more complicated. Fortunately, with the help of a dual diagnosis treatment program, both conditions can improve, increasing the likelihood of long-term recovery. Please reach out to the Northern Illinois Recovery Center today at 855.786.1978 to learn how our treatment center can support your recovery.
