Substance and Behavioral Addiction Recovery at Lindner Center of HOPE

Substance and behavioral addictions can cause emotional, physical, financial and personal problems. Addictions can destroy families, friendships, careers and opportunities for better living. Furthermore, research shows that many addictions have an underlying cause, usually a mental illness. In fact, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) reports that nearly half (45 percent) of those with any mental disorder meet criteria for having two or more disorders. When a mental illness is left untreated, it is difficult to achieve long-term recovery from an addiction. The reverse is also true – untreated addictions can make it difficult to achieve long-term mental wellness.

Comprehensive treatment led by addiction specialists offers proven success. The team at Lindner Center of HOPE can uncover and treat the causes of addiction enabling patients to truly recover from substance or behavioral addictions. Personalized inpatient, newly expanded outpatient, and residential treatment programs, facilitated by a unified, multidisciplinary treatment team, are designed to simultaneously address both addictions and mental disorders.

Lindner Center of HOPE’s approach to addiction recovery includes the use of proven and advanced techniques for treatment, including detoxification, Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), family therapy, and group support. Education about mental disorders, addiction and recovery tools teaches patients how to both manage their mental illness and overcome addiction.


What is an addictive disorder?

An addictive disorder occurs when the use of a substance—such as alcohol or drugs—or a behavior – such as excessive gambling, shopping or gaming—causes significant problems in a person’s life. In most cases, people with addictions frequently suffer from a mental illness, such as depression, anxiety or another disorder.

When both an addiction and a mental illness are present, it is called a co-occurring condition. Co-occurring conditions can be difficult to diagnose and challenging to treat. Fortunately, the treatment team at Lindner Center of HOPE is adept at identifying underlying causes of addictions and can design a plan to address both the mental illness and the addiction.
