Linking Drug Abuse to Mental Illness
Drug abuse can often be linked directly to mental health disorders such as ADD, ADHD, PTSD and more.
Prescription drug abuse has been reported to be at its highest in years. Morningside Recovery of Newport Beach, CA has the tools to fight back with the proper use of dual-diagnosis therapy at our mental health facility and drug rehab clinic. Often the abuse of prescription drugs is directly linked to mental health disorders. A way to escape the pain of severe mental illness is through the abuse of prescription drugs. It is our job to help our clients understand their disorder and face it bravely in an effort to kick the habit.
Studies have shown that depression and substance abuse peak during adolescence and young adulthood. This is a vulnerable time in a young person’s life when they are exposed to so much that it often seems overwhelming. In an effort to escape, they turn to drugs. Sometimes, these drugs are found in their own home. Although prescription drugs are not completely harmful –when abused, painkillers can cause serious mental and physical harm to a young person.
Long-term opioid use is more likely to arise in our clients with mental health disorders than those without. That is why our program focuses on working through mental illness and trauma in an effort to solve the problem once and for all. We replace cravings for these drugs with a lust for life. By offering our clients the opportunity for nature retreats, art classes, rock climbing, vocational training, and even the opportunity to attend university classes, we believe we can reverse the process.
Morningside Recovery offers our mental health facility and drug rehab clinic to anyone in need of our help. We work with insurance companies and families from all over Orange County to provide them the help and support they need to get over drug abuse. Prescription drug abuse is at an all time high. These drugs can be found just about anywhere and at a lower cost than ever before. It is our goal to get young minds back on track with our in-depth therapy sessions and social activities.
