2. Treating Co-occurring Mental Health Concerns
In addition to chemical dependency, nearly all of our clients also experience an underlying mental health concern.
In some cases, a mental health concern such as anxiety or trauma may lead a client to addictive behavior. In other instances, addictive behavior may produce a different mental health challenge, such as anger management or shame.
Invariably, a vicious cycle develops where an addict’s substance abuse exacerbates these underlying mental health concerns, which, in turn, leads to more addictive behavior – and so on.
Accordingly, one of our primary goals is to assist our clients in addressing these underlying mental health challenges. By helping our clients to alleviate and manage these concerns, we not only help to protect against future relapse, we also help to improve their overall happiness and personal fulfillment.
A broad-sweeping spectrum of mental health concerns are defined by the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic & Statistical Manual, 5th edition (“DSM-5”).
We are often asked why our Program at The Abbey is so well recognized for the effectiveness of our treatment as one of the best drug and alcohol rehab centers. Each year at The Abbey, we successfully treat hundreds of people who are suffering from addiction -- bringing much improved health, happiness, and fulfillment to their lives.
During our most recent on-site inspection and program review, the Iowa Department of Public Health assigned The Abbey a compliance score in excess of 98% -- which resulted in the extension of our license for the longest period of time authorized under state law.
We employ the highest-caliber of clinical staff and utilize the most effective, evidence-based treatment protocols.
We believe that we have a number of core competencies that help improve the outcomes and long-term success for our clients.
Effective. Affordable. Treatment.
