Mental Health & Addiction Treatment | Co–Occurring Disorders & Dual Diagnosis

24/7 Helpline 888-242-7730

Mental health issues and substance use disorders have a deep connection in the human brain. According to the National Institute of Mental Health in 2017, nearly one in five adults in the United States was living with some form of mental illness. This breaks down to 46.6 million Americans who struggle with a mental health issue.

In the field of addiction treatment, when someone has a substance use disorder, coupled with another form of mental health issue, we call this a co-occurring disorder or a dual diagnosis. Sometimes addiction treatment alone is not enough. We have helped many people in the Houston, Texas area by identifying a co-occurring mental health issue that was adding to their substance abuse problem.

Today I talk about what a psychiatric ward looks like. I spent a few years working at one and wanted to share with you what it is like. Remember that even though they can be a bit scary and overwhelming, the important thing is that they keep us safe. Psychiatric hospitals, are also known as mental hospitals and psychiatric wards (“psych” wards) when they are a sub-unit of a regular hospital, are hospitals or wards specializing in the treatment of serious mental disorders, such as clinical depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. Psychiatric hospitals vary widely in their size and grading. Some hospitals may specialize only in short-term or outpatient therapy for low-risk patients. Others may specialize in the temporary or permanent care of residents who, as a result of a psychological disorder, require routine assistance, treatment, or a specialized and controlled environment. Patients are often admitted on a voluntary basis, but people whom psychiatrists believe may pose a significant danger to themselves or others may be subject to involuntary commitment.Modern psychiatric hospitals evolved from, and eventually replaced the older lunatic asylums. The treatment of inmates in early lunatic asylums was sometimes brutal and focused on containment and restraint. With successive waves of reform, and the introduction of effective evidence-based treatments, modern psychiatric hospitals provide a primary emphasis on treatment, and attempt where possible to help patients control their own lives in the outside world, with the use of a combination of psychiatric drugs and psychotherapy.A crisis stabilization unit is in effect an emergency room for psychiatry, frequently dealing with suicidal, violent, or otherwise critical individuals. Open units are psychiatric units that are not as secure as crisis stabilization units. Another type of psychiatric hospital is medium term, which provides care lasting several weeks. In the United Kingdom, both crisis admissions and medium term care is usually provided on acute admissions wards. Juvenile or adolescent wards are sections of psychiatric hospitals or psychiatric wards set aside for children and/or adolescents with mental illness. Long-term care facilities have the goal of treatment and rehabilitation back into society within a short time-frame (two or three years). Another institution for the mentally ill is a community-based halfway house.

Residential Mental Health Treatment

24/7 Helpline 888-242-7730

Inpatient treatment, also referred to as residential mental health treatment, takes place in a residential facility on a 24/7 basis.

This level of care is best suited for those who need constant medical supervision as well as those with relatively severe, long-term symptoms who have not shown significant progress after outpatient mental health intervention.

GHB, which is short for gamma-hydroxybutyric acid, is a chemical used in supplements for bodybuilding, fat loss, improved eyesight, reversing baldness, and combating the effects of aging. Medically, it can be used to treat depression, drug addiction, and insomnia. This drug is commonly abused for it’s calming and euphoric effects and increases the user’s libido, suggestibility, passivity, and can even cause amnesia.

Because it can also cause drowsiness, confusion, hallucinations, and impair memory, GHB is often found in sexual assault cases. Withdrawal symptoms are very similar to the effects of alcohol withdrawal, so recovery at a medical treatment center is highly recommended.
