Nobody wakes up one day and decides, "Hey, I want to have an addiction to opiates." Additionally, the first time a person uses a drug or alcohol, they know the risks, but something prompted them to use it anyway; for that person at that moment, the risk was worth the perceived benefit. So what was the factor that prompted them to use the drug anyway?
Finding out the underlying cause for the initial use of a drug or alcohol is a main goal in dual diagnosis residential treatment, a form of addiction treatment. Any treatment center or program can ween a patient off of a chemical and hope that they don't return to using it again. However, a chemical dependency treatment center that employs a dual diagnosis approach tackles the underlying conditions that led the patient to take the drugs; this condition could be chronic pain, depression, trauma, or stress.
New Dawn Recovery is a dual diagnosis treatment center in California that knows the importance of treating underlying conditions in order to successfully rehabilitate its clients and prevent the possibility of future relapses after treatment. This approach is not only essential to the recovery of those with mental or physical conditions that are negatively affecting or worsening addiction, but it also helps the addict himself/herself understand how the chemical dependency came about, and ways to avoid it from happening again.
