Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are identified in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders whilst in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are many alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to be able to not just become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into treatment due to a court order to satisfy part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehabilitation frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug and alcohol rehabilitation requirements enforced with them as part of sentencing and particularly naturally when successfully completing a drug rehab program.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use as a result of challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Besides ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)
