Substance abuse rehab works to fight the physical and psychological effects of addiction. Harrison substance abuse rehab centers seek to treat each patient with the utmost care and compassion, making their stay as comfortable as possible, while tackling the underlying emotional and psychological issues at the core of their substance dependence.
Many substance abuse rehab facilities do not treat the underlying causes of addiction, and that can be extremely detrimental to the addict's recovery journey. When a person has both a chemical dependency and a mental illness, this is referred to as a dual diagnosis.
It has been shown that only treating one condition can lead to multiple relapse events. At intake, each patient undergoes both a physical and psychological examination in order to be properly diagnosed. With the proper diagnosis, the medical professionals can devise a treatment plan that is suited to the patient's specific needs, and therefore, address the issues with the appropriate treatment protocol. If you or someone you love is struggling with a substance abuse issue and a mental health disorder, call Drug Treatment Centers Harrison today at 914-829-5816 for more information and help finding rehab centers.

Relapse Prevention and Aftercare
Relapse prevention significantly helps both addicts and their families understand what to expect and how to manage the onset of a relapse. A large portion of recovering addicts relapse within the first few months after leaving recovery. Understanding this, along with the triggers that may lead them to use once again, can help the addict and their support system to be able to stop it or get the help that is necessary if it does occur.
Addiction aftercare plans and sober living communities can also be beneficial to patients who complete their inpatient recovery process. We assist patients by providing them with the aftercare services and resources available to them so they can continue to live a happy and healthy drug free life.
