If you’re simultaneously struggling with a mental illness and an addiction then it can be said that you have a dual diagnosis. I know that this may sound scary, but it’s actually very common. And it shouldn’t be surprising either, as many people unconsciously turn to alcohol or drugs to mitigate symptoms of other illnesses. Addiction is already complex enough, adding another illness to it makes DIY recovery almost impossible. We’re here to help.
The professionals at oasis tropical Dual Diagnosis Rehab in Costa Rica have the experience required to help people struggling with co-occurring disorders to recover and lead fulfilling lives.
Addiction doesn’t affect just one part of a person – it takes over their entire life, so in order to effectively treat addiction, we must treat the “whole” person. This means mind, body, and spirit. In fact, it is rare to see a “pure alcoholic” anymore. We are now treating individuals with multiple diagnoses including mental health, alcohol and drug diagnoses. And to conquer all, it is imperative to have educated clinicians and diagnosticians who are able to correctly diagnose these disorders.
Our psychiatrist, Dr. Steve Kogel, is an expert in medication management utilizing his broad range of experience coupled with therapy in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, and bipolar disorder to name just a few. After you have been detoxed physically, you will be assessed and have an opportunity to work with Dr. Kogel in-depth regarding your specific case. You will also have an opportunity for weekly follow-up appointments as well. In summation, we treat the whole person to ensure an unparalleled recovery rate.
