At Muse, mental health and addiction recovery
go hand in hand.
Mental health and wellness are critically important components to any addiction recovery process. At Muse we identify and treat all aspects of any mental health disorder as related to our individual clients’ specific needs. Mental health issues range from mild to severe anxiety, depression and sleep disorders. These are normal issues common to those seeking recovery. Other more severe mental health disorders such as Bi-Polar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder and Schizoid Effective Disorder and others are often diagnosed in the early stages of recovery.
Current research identifies a strong connection between the use of addictive substances and individuals suffering from mental illness. Other statistics show that 24% of people in the United States have been diagnosed with some form of mental illness. During the recovery process, particularly during the detoxification and post-acute withdrawal, mental health disorders of all types become activated and, at times, exacerbated. Additionally, during these early phases of the recovery process, symptoms related to trauma can appear only temporarily and mirror other mental health disorders, but wane as patients are stabilized. Muse clinicians are trained to recognize the difference between mental illnesses and trauma symptom response and treat each individual client based on his or her specific needs.
Mental Health issues are defined as some kind of abnormality within an individual’s social function, mood, or cognition. Those with identified diagnoses (such as Bipolar and Borderline Personality disorders, for example) combined with chemical dependency are treated with specific measures for co-occurring disorders.
Muse treats the following mental health issues, in conjunction with substance abuse treatment:
- Bipolar disorder
- Borderline Personality disorder
- Schizoaffective disorder
- Dual Diagnosis
