Why Simultaneous Dual Diagnosis Care Is Part of 1st Step’s Treatment for Meth Addiction

A dual diagnosis is a behavioral health problem that is present along with an addiction. Examples of dual diagnoses include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Trauma related issues
  • Bipolar disorder

Every person is different. For some, using meth or other drugs was a way to control painful or uncontrollable emotions. For others, the drug use caused anxiety, depression or other issues. Whatever the reason, both the meth addiction treatment and the behavioral health therapy must take place at the same time. At 1st Step, we’re experts in dealing with dual diagnoses in patients who require treatment for meth addiction.

Gaining insight into what led to drug use helps our clients create a strong relapse-resistant recovery. Using a combination of group and individual therapy, you work with your treatment team to create a program that is tailored to your unique needs. Your crystal meth treatment plan may include:

  • Experiential Therapy
  • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
  • Trauma & PTSD Therapy
  • Drama Therapy
  • Family Sculpting and Role Reintegration Therapy

Family services are integrated throughout treatment for meth addiction at 1st Step.

Multiple Levels of Meth Addiction Treatment On-Site

Best practices in crystal meth treatment require that someone with an addiction have access to a continuum of care. At 1st Step’s beautiful Florida campus we are proud to offer a broad spectrum of services:

  • Sub-Acute Detox (the important initial step in treatment for meth addiction)
  • Residential
  • Outpatient Treatment
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
  • Sober Living Apartments
  • Aftercare Services & Alumni Grou

After detox you are more physically ready for the rigors of active rehab. Residential treatment is normally the first important step in meth addiction treatment. 1st Step residential rehab provides a highly structured format along with 24-hour monitoring and support. The first days of rehab can be challenging. The 1st Step team is available day and night to help you in times of doubt or fear.

As you become stronger in your recovery, you are able to transition into lower levels of care. With peer and professional support, you will be able to begin putting your recovery skills to work at home, work, in school or through volunteering. Life becomes normalized, but you will still be taking part in the treatment process to help with this adjustment. Physically and emotionally you’ll begin to experience a true sense of wellness and hope.

Relapse prevention tools and life skills aren’t just something that you’ll talk about at 1st Step. You’ll put them to work in a variety of situations, including sober living recreational outings.

Are you ready to take that 1st Step? That’s what we’re here for!
