Addiction & Mental Health
An integrated treatment approach
At Enterhealth, we know that addiction does not live in isolation. Our extensive experience healing patients reveals that most people diagnosed with a substance use disorder (SUD) also suffer from co-occurring mental health or behavioral disorders that only serve to fuel their addiction through self-medication.
When there is a Dual Diagnosis, it is critical that the patient enroll in a treatment program that can address both problems at the same time and leave no stone unturned in the healing process. Connecting the dots on substance abuse and creating a personalized, integrated approach that treats all underlying mental or behavioral disorders in conjunction with addiction treatment gives patients the best chance to achieve and maintain lasting recovery.
Drug & alcohol addiction treatment, by type
Every type of addiction is different in terms of how the substance affects the body, and each drug addict or alcoholic has a unique combination of personal history, co-occurring psychological or medical conditions and external or social factors that contribute to the abuse. The unique treatment approach at Enterhealth Ranch and Enterhealth Outpatient Center of Excellence is tailored to address each patient’s addiction level, abuse patterns and co-occurring issues. To help provide some understanding into your loved one’s particular drug or alcohol addiction, here is some information on a few of the most commonly abused substances. Click to learn more.
