How to Access Mental Health Services
If you need mental health and substance abuse treatment, make sure to review your health insurance policy to see what’s covered. The best way to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses is to make sure the psychologist or therapist you wish to see is included in your plan’s in-network providers list. Health insurance plans that cover mental health services may also list some rehabilitation programs they prefer to cover.
Mental Health and Addiction
Many people who suffer from a substance abuse problem may also have an underlying mental health condition that’s preventing them from making the progress they desire. This is referred to as a dual diagnosis, and it’s important to acknowledge the connection between our mental health and behavioral patterns that lead us to substance abuse.
The ways a licensed psychiatrist can help you during your recovery from a substance abuse disorder include the following:
Assessing Your Mental Health Issues
You might not be aware of mental health problems that are keeping you from leading the life you want. A psychiatrist can diagnose any mental health disorders you have and provide a treatment plan, which may include medications to treat anxiety, bipolar depression, sleep disorders or obsessive-compulsive behaviors that contribute to your addiction.
Adjusting Treatment to Your Unique Needs
Your mental health concerns are important when determining the best way to ensure a successful recovery. Working with a psychiatrist can reduce your chance of relapse because your treatment plan revolves around your needs and aspirations.
Continued Support After Your Initial Recovery
Identifying your mental health conditions allows you to pursue ongoing care. Recognizing when your mental health is interfering with your progress may keep you from returning to your addiction by making you reach out when you know you need support. Mental health professionals can help you learn coping mechanisms and direct you to vital resources when the struggle gets too intense.
