Maui Recovery is a renowned Hawaii addiction treatment center, specializing in alternative treatment methods. Maui Recovery promotes holistic treatment, evidence-based treatment, and integrative treatment options. Put simply; Our approach to addiction treatment is to treat the whole person rather than treating just a symptom of a problem. But is addiction merely a symptom? After all, most people say that "addiction is a disease," right?
Yes. That's what people say, and they are right. Addiction is a disease. Still, addiction is a secondary issue. For example, someone who eats too much and doesn't get enough exercise may become obese. Someone who smokes may develop lung cancer. Obesity and lung cancer are health conditions, just as addiction is. However, these conditions resulted from some behavior or thing. Therefore, if you were to treat the obesity or the lung cancer, you must also treat the behaviors or things that caused them to develop. The same applies to addiction.
Mental Health Hawaii Addiction Treatment
Understanding that no less than 56% of all people who check themselves into a drug and alcohol addiction treatment center have co-occurring disorders makes it easier to understand the real problem that Hawaii addiction treatment centers are up against. Co-occurring addictions are addictions where the individual has developed a dependence on a chemical substance and has at least one psychological or mental health disorder. For example, drug addiction and PTSD. Alcohol dependence and social anxiety disorder. Prescription medicine abuse and personality disorder. These are examples of co-occurring disorders, and more than half of all rehab attendees have them.
What is not readily understood on a case-by-case basis is whether or not the addiction or substance abuse issue developed before, after, or as a result of the mental health disorder. Likewise, it's not easy to tell if a mental health issue was present prior to substance abuse and addiction or if it developed afterward or as a result of the chemical dependence and lifestyle. Sadly, many people with co-occurring disorders will go in and out of rehabs and institutions throughout their lives, having their mental health issues overlooked or being wrongly attributed to addiction or vise versa.
