Mental Health Treatment


Mental Health Treatment

Because there is a myriad of mental health issues, behavioral therapy depends on the mental health diagnosis and its severity. It may be that a combination of different treatment methods is what will work best. The same is true of mental health addiction treatment. Co-occurring disorders impact mental state and can cause addiction to alcohol or drugs.  Dual diagnosis mental health and substance abuse should be addressed simultaneously by the same skilled, caring, and professional team. If you or someone you love could benefit from mental health addiction treatment, contact Avedis Detox online, or call us confidentially at 833.514.0579 today.
An IOP is another stepping stone into a recovery-based lifestyle but without the residential component. Our intensive outpatient program provides the support and structure of addiction treatment as clients transition back into society. Clients receive care on a schedule that fits their needs while returning home in the evenings to take care of their other responsibilities. Contact our campus located on South La Brea Avenue to learn more about our intensive outpatient program in Los Angeles by calling 833.514.0579.

Finding The Mental Health Treatment You Need

If your mental illness is mild, not connected with addiction, and with only easily manageable symptoms, receiving treatment from your primary care provider or family doctor may be sufficient to get mental health treatment. On the other hand, mental health addiction treatment should be from a skilled, professional team of doctors and staff. Receiving care in a safe, clean facility could be what is needed to overcome co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders and begin recovery.

With more notable people, from athletes to celebrities, every day speaking freely about their unique struggles with mental health issues, no one should have to feel alone. With dedicated care available at treatment centers like Avedis, the help you need has never been more within reach.

Mental Health Addiction Treatment

The mental health problems commonly co-occurring with abuse or an addiction to drugs and alcohol include depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety. Substance abuse and addiction are intrinsically linked to mental health, and the number of people suffering is significant.

  • Nearly 50% of adults suffering from severe mental health disorders are also affected by drug or alcohol addiction
  • Over a third of all people addicted to alcohol, and more than half of those abusing drugs, have at least one mental illness that must also be treated to experience a full recovery
  • Approximately 30 percent of those diagnosed as mentally ill also have an alcohol or drug abuse issue

Struggling through more than one battle at a time can feel like the odds are stacked against you and your recovery. It may seem as though the world is cruel and unfair without a viable future. But there is always hope. Support can come from a circle of family and understanding friends sharing their love and a willingness to help yourself.
