Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Anxiety and Substance Use Disorder Treatment

Dealing with anxiety can be challenging for anyone, but even more so when you are also struggling with the effects of a substance use disorder. These two conditions can affect one another making both more difficult to manage. Addiction and anxiety disorder treatment at Crossroads provides comprehensive care that empowers clients to take control of their health and well-being and make the most of each day in recovery. From residential treatment for women to outpatient therapy for both men and women, clients can find the help they need to remember who they wanted to be and thrive in recovery.

Treating anxiety is an integral part of addressing addiction. The stress, nervousness, and worry that anxiety induces can directly affect substance use. Some people turn to drugs or alcohol as a way of trying to self-medicate and alleviate the symptoms they feel. However, these substances can end up having the opposite effect and increase feelings of anxiety instead. This vicious cycle can be hard to break, but Crossroads equips clients with the knowledge and strategies they need to better manage their recovery. There are many natural and holistic ways of coping with anxiety as well as cravings from addiction. Crossroads provides a safe, therapeutic environment for healing.

Treating Anxiety and Substance Use Disorders at Crossroads

As an addiction treatment center, Crossroads offers customized dual diagnosis treatment. All clients undergo a thorough assessment upon arrival to evaluate their current health and well-being and identify any mental health disorders that may be present in addition to substance use disorders. This allows clients to partner with their care team to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses their individual needs. Treating anxiety is incorporated into daily counseling and therapy sessions as well as the wellness services and recreational activities clients participate in.

Addiction and anxiety disorder treatment at Crossroads is gender-responsive to address the different ways that women and men are affected by, respond to, and recover from addiction and mental health disorders.

Throughout treatment, clients learn how addiction and anxiety affect one another and develop personalized approaches for dealing with challenges.
