What WE treat

Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center in Hollywood Florida.

Someone who has both a mental health condition and a drug use disorder is said to have a dual diagnosis, also known as a co-occurring disorder.

Sometimes, when a person experiences a traumatic event or has a psychiatric disorder such as depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder and does not obtain proper treatment, they may be more prone to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol. Vice versa, some drugs and also prolonged alcohol use can lead to psychiatric illnesses as well, like depression or mania.


Why the Need to Seek Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Because the symptoms of a dual diagnosis frequently overlap, it is challenging to diagnose. 7.9 million Americans are thought to experience both addiction and mental disorders.

Although using illegal drugs or alcohol temporarily masks the main mental illness, doing so overwhelmingly pushes a person who is already having trouble onto a dangerous path of addiction.

Drug usage becomes ingrained in a person’s daily life, enabling them to behave “normally.” A friendly and committed team, like The IKANN Wellness in Hollywood Florida, California, may go above and beyond the typical drug misuse treatment choices to help people understand why they become hooked.

Our dual diagnosis treatment programme will deal with the underlying causes of your behavioural or mental health issues and match you with the ideal addiction treatment programme for a speedy recovery.

Factors Contributing to Dual Diagnosis

Environmental Factors: Exposure to violence or traumatic events can result in substance abuse to “fix” trauma. The need to self-medicate, often with alcohol or drugs rather than seek professional medical help, contributes to Dual Diagnosis.

Biological Factors: Biological factors, also known as genetic factors, can contribute to a Dual Diagnosis. Being prone to substance abuse and mental health disorders can be dictated by genetic predisposition. In other words, it may run in the family.

Physical Factors: Physical factors can also contribute to Dual Diagnosis. Those who suffer from chronic pain or debilitating disease or are on chronic medications may find themselves prone to misuse as they have trouble coping with their health conditions.

Economic Factors: Losing a job or career or suffering hardships and financial issues can contribute to Dual Diagnosis. Those facing economic hardships tend to abuse drugs to ‘escape’ their sometimes harsh reality.

Psychological Factors: People with psychological disorders resort to substance abuse to feel better. IE, someone suffering from a loss cannot cope with their feelings. Those with mental health issues become addicted because they try to find a way to escape their mental pain.

How is Dual Diagnosis Treated at The Ikann Wellness?

At The Ikann Wellness when it comes to dual diagnosis treatment programs, we utilize a wide variety of evidence-based therapy approaches and support groups. Some of these therapeutic approaches and evidence-based treatment modalities within dual diagnosis treatment programs include:

Outpatient Treatment: For those who have gone through detox or treatment for substance addiction and/or mental health concerns that need continued support services in the outpatient setting.

Individual Therapy: Involves a session with a professional therapist who counsels the patient on a personal level.

Group therapy: Helps clients relate to each other and find strength in one another. They encourage one another, offering solace.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): Helps an individual identify and change behaviors/perceptions relating to substance abuse tied to mental health disorders such as depression, PTSD, anxiety and suicidal ideations

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): Provide various benefits, including a structured support system and continued addiction and mental health treatment.

What Mental Disorders Are Associated with Dual Diagnosis?

Depending on the person, dual diagnoses can vary. Anxiety, depression, Bipolar Disorder, trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder, OCD, personality disorders, schizophrenia, ADHD, and eating disorders are a few examples of frequent mental health illnesses. Different approaches to treating the underlying disease are required for treating each of these mental health illnesses.

Personality Disorders: A personality disorder is a mental illness in which the person affected has a fixed and unhealthy way of thinking, behaving, and functioning. An equilibrium may be hard to find, so self-medication is a solution.

Anxiety Disorders: According to the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety disorder is common and affects around 3.1 percent of Americans. People diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder are likely to use alcohol, opioids, and other drugs to curb anxiety.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Primary symptoms of PTSD are nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety, and stress due to uncontrollable thinking about a prior traumatic event.

Depression: Depression is expressed by consistently depressed moods, constant worry, and loss of interest in daily activities. Many result in substance abuse to escape the sequence of anxiety and mood loss they experience in their lives.

Bipolar Disorder: Heightened mood swings and manic episodes can leave those battling bipolar disorder to find a level playing field.
