Sovereign Health is a leading dual diagnosis treatment facility which specializes in helping people with co-occurring disorders. Sovereign Health treats not only the substance abuse problem, but the associated mental health problem that often times accompanies people with addiction. Sovereign can provide alcohol detox, which often times is the first step in beginning the recovery process. With drug and alcohol abuse many times the patient can become physically addicted and withdrawal from drugs and alcohol often times require monitoring from a doctor or certified counselor. Detox symptoms can rival flu like symptoms, but often times more serious side effects can be brought about from withdrawal including seizure, vomiting, intense anxiety and high blood pressure. The physical side effects from withdrawal combined with the mental addiction is often times the reason for relapse. Sovereign Health are experts at helping to treat patients battling addiction and setting them up with the tools needed for long term recovery and relapse prevention.
