The link between borderline personality (BPD) disorder and drug and alcohol use is complex. It is widespread for individuals with mental health disorders to turn to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate. These individuals frequently end up abusing substances and developing addictions. For those with BPD, drug and alcohol abuse exacerbates some of the most dangerous symptoms, including depression, rage, and abandonment issues. These individuals require co-occurring treatment from a professional borderline personality disorder treatment center.

We understand the importance of using an integrated approach to treat mental health disorders and co-occurring substance abuse or addiction.

What Are the Benefits of a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center?dual diagnosis treatment

Dual diagnosis treatment begins with a thorough assessment to ensure that our treatment team has a clear understanding of your mental health disorder, your substance use history, medical history, and the goals you have for treatment.

The integrated approach to dual diagnosis treatment at Harmony Hills will streamline your recovery. Through dual diagnosis treatment, you will gain insight into how your co-occurring disorders impact each other and how they impact your functioning. You will learn life skills and coping mechanisms that you can carry with you beyond treatment, giving you the ability to recognize and manage triggers that previously provoked symptoms. Our dual diagnosis treatment center offers:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Trauma therapy
  • Individual, group, and family therapy
  • EMDR therapy
  • 12-step therapy
  • Relapse prevention therapy

If you struggle with mental health issues and co-occurring substance use disorder issues, you are not alone, and help is available. Through the dual diagnosis treatment programs at Harmony Hills, you can grow in ways you didn’t realize you were capable of and have hope for a healthy, fulfilling future in recovery.

What Is the Importance of Dual Diagnosis Treatment Programs?

On their own, mental health disorders and substance use disorders each present treatment challenges and cause severe difficulties in the lives of those impacted. When they present as co-occurring disorders, the two become even more complex. Until recently, the common belief was that co-occurring disorders needed to be treated separately. We have now learned that the way co-occurring disorders impact one another makes it necessary to treat them together for recovery from either to be effective and long-term.

Part of what makes co-occurring disorders so complicated is that the symptoms of each distinct disease are so similar and overlapping, making it difficult to distinguish which is causing what symptoms. The relationship between co-occurring disorders is an intricate combination of environmental, biological, and genetic factors unique to each individual. Among the most common dual diagnoses are substance use disorders and:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Depression disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Personality disorders, including BPD

Recognizing and acknowledging the need for help is not easy. Many who suffer from co-occurring disorders believe they are alone in their struggles, so they isolate themselves and suffer in silence. However, studies show that nearly eight million Americans suffer from dual diagnoses. At the Harmony Hills dual diagnosis treatment center, we understand that successful treatment focuses not on your diagnosis but on you as a person.
