Addiction and behavioral health disorders, like depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, can be so intertwined that it’s difficult to discern if one is first and contributing to the other or vice versa. For example, someone with anxiety might also have cannabis dependence, while someone struggling with depression primarily may have an alcohol problem. This is called a dual diagnosis disorder or a co-occurring disorder.
To treat a person with a dual disorder, it requires specialist treatment at specialist facilities, such as Sanctum. An integrated solution at our center, consisting of Eastern holistic and wellness practices, alongside individualized Western psychotherapy and counseling sessions, help tackle the core problem and provide support for long-lasting change.
