Substance Use Disorders & Mental Illnesses:
We Take Them Seriously!
Substance Use Disorders
A substance use disorder (SUD) is a chemical dependency, an addiction, or the act of abusing a drug and/or alcohol substance. The treatment for a SUD requires a specific approach that works to address substance usage, since the effects it has on the body tie directly into the mental health aspect of this disease.
Federal City provides a powerful and effective multi-dimensional approach that treats the alcohol and drug addiction with a variety of abstinence-centric treatment models. These models can be used alongside current behavioral therapies. These methods treat a wide range of substance use disorders, including:
Federal City gives its clients residential programs and outclient treatment that breaks addiction cycles and encourages healthier coping mechanism and persona habits. We help clients identify the core issues behind their substance abuse, and we then utilize mindfulness-centric strategies to handle these issues. We have a goal of long-term recovery that combines sober living with a holistic focus on mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.
Believe it or not, according to SAMHSA more than 40% of people who have substance abuse problems also have mental health issues. It is not hard to believe this high percentage because alcohol and drugs interfere with a person’s brain chemistry. It also accounts for the fact that lots of people utilize alcohol and drugs for emotional coping which can be related to mental health issues. It is very clear that mental health and substance abuse issues are not only closely connected but strengthen each other. This is why Federal City does not overlook the possibility that one who has substance dependencies may also have some form of mental illness.
Below are just a few of the mental health issues we treat:
Federal City aims to provide holistic long-term recovery. To reach this goal, we treat and identify mental health problems which co-occur with one another. The dual diagnosis are for clients with symptoms of mental health problems along with the substance addiction.
We have a staff of fully licensed and trained providers who treat mental health and addiction issues. We know that no two clients are identical. Therefore, we work very closely will the client to discover their specific needs and if a dual diagnosis treatment plan is necessary. We are well experienced in multiple evidence-based therapies and make use of applying what is needed to promote healing. Some of these therapies are: CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), mindfulness and meditation, behavior therapy, and trauma-informed programming to assist the client in developing the healthy coping tools need to manage in a productive way.
