Why Middle East Residents find Effective and Affordable Treatment for Dual Diagnosis at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Dual diagnosis, also referred to as a co-occurring disorder, refers to someone who suffers from more than one medical disorder. This can be an addiction to more than one substance or addiction combined with one or more psychological disorders. Individuals with an addiction who also suffer from a major disease such as AIDS are also considered to have a dual diagnosis.
Common psychological disorders that co-occur with addiction include:
- Eating disorders
- Obsessive compulsive disorder
More than one half of people who suffer from addiction also suffer from some form of psychological disorder. The effects of the illness are often what drove them to addiction in the first place.
Many people struggling with disorders such as depression and anxiety will use alcohol or prescription drugs to self-medicate. Although it may initially appear to help alleviate stress, self-medication tends to lead to substance abuse, which actually increases the symptoms of depression and anxiety. This creates a vicious cycle of dependence.
Our dual diagnosis treatment method
Treatment for individuals with dual diagnosis is more difficult than for those battling only addiction. Clients with co-occurring disorders are high risk and have a much higher suicide rate. Treatment can be complicated since many of the symptoms for mental illness and addiction mimic and feed off each other, making the symptoms worse. Misdiagnosis is common among people with co-occurring disorder. Failure to identify and treat co-occurring disorders is the leading cause of relapse.
At the Cabin Arabic Treatment Centre, we know that a deep understanding of dual diagnosis is vital to successful recovery and relapse prevention. Our team of addiction counsellors, psychiatrists and psychologists are specialists in this field. Before a client arrives at our centre they will receive an extensive psychological assessment to determine if there is a co-occurring disorder. Based on the results, our clinical team will establish a direct relationship with the client’s referring physician in order to determine the most-effective dual diagnosis treatment plan and ensure cohesive medical treatment during and after their stay at The Cabin.
We know that clients with several disorders need comprehensive care. Our clinical team will draw up a customised treatment plan for the client that addresses every aspect of his condition. He will receive special one-one-one counselling sessions that focus specifically on the co-occurring disorder. These sessions will be augmented by Mindfulness therapy – a combination of meditation and yoga that has been scientifically proven to effectively treat mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression. While Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, mind mapping and group counselling sessions with a 12 Step approach are used to deal with overcoming the addiction.
This personalised approach combined with the dedication and compassion of our experienced clinical team, have seen almost all our dual-diagnosed clients attain and maintain recovery.
