Substance and behavioral addictions can cause emotional, physical, financial and personal problems. Addictions can destroy families, friendships, careers and opportunities for better living. Furthermore, research shows that many addictions have an underlying cause, usually a mental illness. In fact, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) reports that nearly half (45 percent) of those with any mental disorder meet criteria for having two or more disorders. When a mental illness is left untreated, it is difficult to achieve long-term recovery from an addiction. The reverse is also true – untreated addictions can make it difficult to achieve long-term mental wellness.
Comprehensive treatment led by addiction specialists offers proven success. The team at Lindner Center of HOPE can uncover and treat the causes of addiction enabling patients to truly recover from substance or behavioral addictions. Personalized inpatient, outpatient, and residential treatment programs, facilitated by a unified, multidisciplinary treatment team, are designed to simultaneously address both addictions and mental disorders.
Lindner Center of HOPE’s approach to addiction recovery includes the use of proven and advanced techniques for treatment, including detoxification, Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), family therapy, and group support. Education about mental disorders, addiction and recovery tools teaches patients how to both manage their mental illness and overcome addiction.
