If your troubles with your mental health have led to an addiction problem, help is out there. Relevance Recovery, New Jersey’s renowned substance abuse and dual diagnosis treatment center (866-245-1497) offers holistic programs.
Why are some people more vulnerable to mental illness than others? And why do some people who drink, or try drugs become addicted but others don't?
While a combination of biological, environmental, psychological, and genetic factors is what can cause a mental health disorder, studies show that genetics, childhood trauma, stress, and systems of social/environmental inequality are also what can cause an addiction.
Essentially, the same perfect storm that makes a person vulnerable to developing a mental illness can also lead to substance abuse. The "why" is a good question, because the answer can act as the first step in your recovery.
If you're struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, or PTSD - or any type of mental health disorder - and you're caught in an addiction spiral that developed as a way of dealing with your pain, you are not alone.
Over 7 million adults struggle with this very same problem, a condition known as dual diagnosis which, left untreated, can lead to serious health problems, brain damage, and sometimes even suicide.
But there is hope.
Relevance Recovery in New Jersey is one of the country's premier clinics for addressing and resolving dual diagnosis. The full-service mental health facility offers today's most advanced treatments, combining evidence-based talk therapies like Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) with equine therapy, yoga, music therapy, massage therapy, biofeedback therapy, and meditation.
These advances in holistic, integrative modalities can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, improve self-confidence, and help clients develop healthier life skills.

It was Dr. Gabor Maté, a renowned Hungarian-Canadian trauma expert who said, "The attempt to escape from pain, is what creates more pain." So, the answer is not in repeated attempts to escape, but rather in compassionate confrontation of what's at the root of your troubles.
“Leaving mental illness unaddressed can result in the condition worsening over time. When there’s an underlying substance abuse problem, individuals can get caught in a serious downward spiral over which they can feel completely powerless. When personalized, multidisciplinary therapies are introduced and our clients learn new, healthier ways of coping, outcomes are life-changing.”
Before treatment at Relevance Recovery can begin, a team of master’s level clinicians help clients through the detox process. Once the body’s addiction to drugs or alcohol is addressed and assuaged, a personalized, multidisciplinary psychotherapeutic process can begin.
In addition to CBT, DBT, and REBT, you have access to therapies that address your emotional and physical self, such as massage therapy, a proven effective method for managing stress, anxiety and depression.
There's also equine therapy which helps with self-regulation, self-confidence, and developing and maintaining healthy relationships. Biofeedback measures your physical tension and stress, and is used to help you relax your muscles, decrease rapid breathing, and decrease your heart rate. This type of therapy reduces symptoms related to PTSD, anxiety, depression, or ADHD.
Other therapies include music therapy, yoga, and meditation.
You can look into an inpatient program or an outpatient program and can also participate in both individual and group therapy sessions. The clinicians at Relevance Recovery are here to build a treatment plan that is unique to you and designed to put you on the path to a happier, healthier, more rewarding life.
The award-winning programs at Relevance Recovery have helped hundreds of people just like you find mental wellness and an abundant life in sobriety.
