What is a Dual Diagnosis?
A dual diagnosis is when someone suffers from both a mental health disorder and substance abuse. This can sometimes complicate anxiety treatment, as it requires treating both disorders at the same time.
Mindflow Recovery Institute offers anxiety treatment online for those suffering from a dual diagnosis. We understand how difficult it can be to manage two disorders simultaneously, which is why we also offer an intensive outpatient program in addition to our online treatments for anxiety & depression.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment Options
The first step in anxiety treatment is to get a comprehensive assessment to determine if you have a dual diagnosis. Once we have established that you do, we will work with you to create a custom treatment plan that may include:
– Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
– Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
– Family Therapy
– Group Therapy
– Medication Management
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Dual Diagnosis Patients
In some cases, patients may need more than what anxiety treatment online is able to provide. That’s why Mindflow Recovery Institute also offers an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for dual diagnosis patients. Our IOP is designed for patients who need more structure than what online anxiety services can provide. Intensive Outpatient Programs typically meet three days per week for three hours at a time.
This level of care is perfect for patients who:
– Are Employed
– Are in School
– Do Not Need 24 Hour Supervision
– Have a Strong Support System at Home
Mental Health Treatment for Anxiety Disorders
If you are suffering from anxiety, there are many treatment options available that have shown proven results. The most effective treatment plans will typically include a combination of medication and therapy. Online doctors often prescribe medications that can be used to help control the symptoms of anxiety while therapy sessions with a licensed therapist can be used to help you understand and manage your mental health disorders. If you are interested in exploring online treatment services for anxiety, there are many resources available. CTI offers both medication and therapy options for treating anxiety disorders.
Who Can Diagnose AD and Write Prescriptions?
Anxiety disorders and other mental illnesses can be diagnosed by a mental health professional, such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, or clinical social worker. To be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, the person must have symptoms for at least six months. The symptoms must also not be due to another medical condition or caused by other substances, such as medication, controlled substances, or alcohol.
Any primary care doctor or psychiatrist has the ability to write prescriptions. If you see a mental health professional for anxiety, they may also be able to prescribe medication if they have what’s called a “collaborative drug therapy management” or CDTM for short. This allows the therapist to work with a psychiatrist to manage your anxiety medicine. If you find that you’re not comfortable talking about your anxiety with your doctor, or if you’ve tried medication and it hasn’t worked, there are other options available to you.
Does Prescription Medication Treat Anxiety Disorders?
There are many types of anxiety medications available, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), benzodiazepines, tricyclic antidepressants, and beta-blockers. These medications can help relieve symptoms in people with anxiety disorders. However, they do not cure the mental illness. Some people need to take anxiety medication for months or even years.
Talk to your doctor or health care professional about the risks and benefits of anxiety medications. It’s important to know that most anxiety medication has not been tested in those under the age of 18. Therefore, their safety and effectiveness are not known in this age group.
Types of Anxiety Medications
There are several types of anxiety medications available. The type that’s right for you depends on your specific symptoms, medical history, and preferences.
– SSRIs: Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed anxiety medications. They increase levels of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is one of the neurotransmitters that play a role in mood and anxiety. SSRIs are thought to work by blocking the reabsorption, or reuptake, of serotonin into neurons. This leaves more serotonin available, which is thought to improve symptoms.
– SNRIs: Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are another type of anxiety medication. They work similarly to SSRIs by blocking the reuptake of certain neurotransmitters, but they affect both serotonin and norepinephrine.
– Benzodiazepines: Benzodiazepines are a type of anxiety medication that can be very effective in treating anxiety symptoms. They work by binding to GABA receptors in the brain, which increases the effects of the neurotransmitter GABA. This can help to reduce anxiety symptoms.
– Buspirone: Buspirone is a type of anxiety medication that is thought to work by increasing levels of serotonin in the brain. It is often used as an adjunctive treatment for anxiety disorders.
