Helping yourself is the first step toward recovery

Millions of people struggle with substance abuse, and 1 in 5 Americans will have a mental health issue in his or her lifetime. Some people have a dual diagnosis of two or more co-occurring disorders. These conditions are diseases caused by a combination of factors including biology, heredity and environmental issues that shape personality. Some people are more vulnerable than others, so it is important to understand underlying causes and develop appropriate coping skills and mechanisms. Counseling and treatment programs are ways of learning to deal with your issues.

Sovereign Health of California is a leading behavioral health provider, accredited by the Joint Commission and dually licensed for treatment of mental health, addiction and dual diagnosis.

 

Stigma and Denial

Some people still attach social stigma to certain diseases involving addiction and mental health. People who suspect that they have these conditions may be afraid of the stigma as well as discrimination. But without assessment, diagnosis and treatment, a person will continue to have episodes of illness that could be managed with more information, education and the right tools.

This can have serious consequences for education, employment, relationships and the overall quality of a person’s life. You may have come to this page because you are unhappy with your own behavior, but without a professional assessment, you may just blame yourself for your problems.

Being in denial is very common for people who have mental health or substance abuse issues, so if you recognize that you may have some issues that might need professional help, you have already taken an important first step toward treating and managing your condition, and getting your life under control.

Relapse Does Happen

Some people get treatment, but then relapse. That happens more often than many people realize, because breaking free of an addiction and staying free is not easy.

One cause is exposure to triggers that overpower a person’s coping skills. Another problem is incomplete diagnosis – for example, some people abuse substances to deal with an undiagnosed mental health problem, so if they only get treatment for an addiction, they will resume substance abuse when there is another episode of mental illness.

That means comprehensive assessment and diagnosis are critical for recovery. You have to get the right treatment in order for it to be effective. Sovereign Health provides a thorough assessment, as well as comprehensive treatment that is customizes to each client’s needs.
