mental health and addiction ebook

Almost half of the individuals with a mental health disorder have a co-occurring substance use disorder. Unfortunately, the connection often goes unnoticed and untreated. This lack of information leaves people going in and out of treatment for decades. Mental health and addiction go hand in hand, and the only way to approach them is through a comprehensive dual-diagnosis program that addresses them simultaneously. 

What’s Included?dual diagnosis treatment ebook

This eBook about mental health and addiction shares insights into the world of dual diagnosis and recognizing the symptoms. However, remember that these conditions vary tremendously from person to person, so it’s impossible to pinpoint your loved one’s symptoms in one book. Nor, we intend this book to be a replacement for medical and professional advice. 

Instead, we want this book to serve as a resource guide for those who fear their loved one struggles with one of these devastating disorders. In this first edition, you will find: 

  • The connection between mental health and addiction
  • What are dual-diagnosis programs?
  • How depression, anxiety, and ADHD can lead to addiction
  • The way addiction triggers mental health disorders
  • What are the treatment options
  • How to find help for co-occurring disorders
  • What to look for in treatment

Who Should Download This eBook?

This eBook is for anyone with a loved one potentially struggling with addiction or mental health issues. It’s important to note that this book is not intended to diagnose or treat any condition. This is meant to be used as an educational tool that helps people understand addiction and its consequences more comprehensively. It includes recognizing the signs of addiction, how to help your loved one, and what to look for when finding treatment. 

What Can My Next Steps Be?

Maybe after downloading this ebook, you still have more questions about addiction. We’re here to help you understand what to do next. First, you can visit our resource page to learn more about addiction, treatment options, and support.

Ideally, you want to reach out to our addiction support specialist to see if they can help you schedule a call to discuss the next steps. Consider having your loved one take a confidential and complementary addiction assessment over the phone to see if they might be candidates for rehab. If they are, then they can continue the process and get a comprehensive drug addiction assessment and mental health check to determine the best course of treatment and set the right expectations from the beginning. 

If you have any questions, we invite you to call us at (866) 308-2090 at any time to speak with our caring admission specialists. We’ll listen carefully (and confidentially) to your questions, needs, and concerns. Together, we can help your loved one start the journey to recovery. Remember, addiction is a life-threatening disease, so every second count.
