Overcoming Depression and Addiction In 30 Days

Table of Contents

Overcoming depression and addiction during a 30 day treatment program may seem like a tall order- and one that may be holding you back from seeking help. While 30 days may not be enough time for everyone to overcome depression and addiction, it is enough time to make a significant change in your life no matter who you are and what your situation is. There’s no reason to wait.

Depression and Addiction Often Go Hand In Hand

Depression and addiction often go hand in hand, and they are one of the most common dual diagnoses. A dual diagnosis is when an individual has been diagnosed with at least one mental health disorder as well as addiction. In order to achieve a successful recovery and symptom management, it’s very important that both of these issues are addressed concurrently. Depression, when left untreated, can lead to a substance abuse relapse. Equally, when addiction is left untreated, this may lead to the deterioration of mental health, such as depression. Seeking treatment is the first step toward a successful recovery and the beginning of a more balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Regular treatment programs for either addiction or depression is generally for a limited period of time, usually 30, 60 or 90 days. For someone who has been struggling with both addiction and with depression for years, this may seem like an impossible task in too short a period of time and so they choose not to seek help. However, dual diagnosis treatment programs recognize that more time may be needed in order to properly treat both the addiction and the underlying mental health issue.  Dual diagnosis programs may be longer so that the client can learn all the skills they will need to cope with daily life without using drugs or alcohol and to prevent future relapses. This also allows them time to address and correct the significant underlying psychological problems that they may have, such as depression.
