As addiction is defined as a chronic disease, it should be treated as one. Receiving addiction treatment is necessary for breaking the ongoing cycle of the disease, and therefore, should never be a one-size-fits-all approach, as each individual has unique circumstances and needs.

Treatment options for substance abuse depend on several factors, including the type of addiction, severity, and how long it has occurred, and how it has affected an individual, both physically and psychologically.

At Ken Seeley Rehab treatment center in Palm Springs, California, we believe in providing our clients with high-quality individualized patient-centered care and support before and after their journey with addiction.

By providing a variety of addiction treatment programs that focus on our clients and their families, in addition to other resources and support, we can help to achieve healing and provide the necessary tools to achieve and maintain long-term sobriety and recovery.

Along with addiction, people are also struggling with mental illness. When someone has a mental disorder and addiction issues simultaneously, this is called a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder.

Mental illness is a major risk factor and contributor to one’s issues with substance abuse and addiction. People who become dependent or addicted to drugs and alcohol, commonly turn to these substances because of an underlying mental illness. Vice Versa, those with pre-existing mental disorders, often cope with their symptoms by drinking and taking drugs.
