Substance addictions are complex conditions that are often perpetuated by mental health disorders. At NPAC, we recognize this by providing addiction treatment alongside comprehensive mental health treatment. In doing so, we offer our clients the best chance of achieving a sustainable recovery.
At NPAC, our primary mental health residential treatment addresses the underlying cause of substance abuse and uncovers how mental health conditions can be managed by employing a range of clinically tested therapies.
Depression affects people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Causing intense feelings of sadness or numbness to arise, depression can leave people struggling to find joy or meaning in life, leading to suicide or suicidal thoughts. Self-medicating with drugs or alcohol can become a crutch to evade these depressive episodes.
Emotionally unstable personality disorder (EUPD), otherwise known as a borderline personality disorder (BPD), causes people to experience intense, fluctuating emotions. These intense highs and lows can last anywhere between a few hours up to a week at a time.
Many people living with EUPD are survivors of trauma. As a result, it is common to have a dual diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
PTSD is a condition that can occur after experiencing a traumatic event. Anything that puts someone under extreme or prolonged stress can cause trauma. Triggered when traumatic memories are incorrectly processed, according to research, around 50% of people seeking substance abuse treatment meet the criteria for PTSD.
Mental wellness is not easy to achieve. With the additional challenge of substance addiction, it can take a significant amount of work to maintain. However, the benefits of consciously working to improve your mental health are extensive, especially in this time of global chronic stress.
In addition to increasing susceptibility for addiction, stress leads to decreased focus, cognitive impairment, anger, irrationality, irritability, physical ailments, and fear. However, by working holistically on our mental wellness, the risk of stress is reduced.
Some other benefits of mental wellness include:
