The darkness of depression

Addiction is a disease that rarely occurs in isolation. In fact, the majority of addicts also suffer from some form of psychological malady, foremost among them depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety disorder. Successful addiction treatment is that which addresses both addiction and any disorders associated with it, which is why dual diagnosis is so important in the substance abuse recovery process. Dual diagnosis embraces a holistic vision of substance abuse rehabilitation, one that emphasizes healing the entire addict instead of merely addressing his or her symptoms. In the end, anything less than that just isn’t good enough.

If you or someone you care about is a victim of addiction, dual diagnosis may well be the last best chance you’ve got. The good news is that Cliffside Malibu is here to help. Our luxury rehab center has a record of success that speaks for itself. All you have to do is find the courage to listen. Please, for your own sake, call Cliffside Malibu today at 1-800-501-1988. Even the most exclusive drug and alcohol treatment facility in California can’t help a patient who refuses to be helped. For your own sake, don’t force yourself to learn that lesson the hard way.
