Many people who are contemplating entering into the addiction treatment process are dealing with a mood disorder.
Our alcohol and drug rehabilitation staff is highly educated and experienced at intervening with clients with such mental health issues. These are issues such as Depressive Disorders, Eating Disorders, and Bipolar Disorders. Whether our disorder is due to a medical condition, is substance-induced, or just generalized anxiety, these disorders are illnesses that can create disturbances in our thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Mood disorders frequently cause people who have not had adequate treatment for their illness to self-medicate, using alcohol, drugs, prescription drugs, or other forms of substance abuse. Unfortunately, drugs and alcohol invariably exacerbate our problems, leading to more drastic symptoms and more life-damaging consequences.
