The Importance of Therapy for Substance Abuse Treatment
Studies show there’s a deep link between mental health issues and substance use disorder. In particular, trauma and addiction have an incredibly close link. The majority of people with an addiction have suffered severe trauma, either recently or in their childhood. Sometimes mental health issues and addiction are so closely intertwined that the care provided should reflect this dual diagnosis.
Dual diagnosis is the term for someone having a mental health disorder as well as a substance use issue. While mental illness is a common risk factor for addiction, some conditions in particular such as depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, are particularly common among those with a drug addiction. In each case, drug abuse either stems from a lack of treatment for the underlying condition or is an attempt to treat the condition itself.
This connection is why it’s so important to focus on therapy and underlying conditions during addiction treatment. Shame-oriented treatment and a simple focus on abstinence set people up to relapse by failing to help them. By helping people untangle and overcome the underlying conditions in their lives, it becomes possible to help them achieve an enduring recovery.
