Beach House Center for Recovery is one of Florida’s most respected treatment centers, helping people successfully manage their addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. Backed by mental health clinicians, addiction specialists, and psychiatric providers, Beach House offers expert, intensive intervention for people seeking freedom from addiction.

What Is a Mental Health Disorder?

All mental health disorders are characterized by clinically significant disruptions in cognition, emotional regulation, or behavior. Here are a few factors that may increase your risk of developing a mental health condition:

  • Trauma
  • Family history
  • Environmental threats (e.g., air pollution)
  • Biology and brain chemistry
  • Unhealthy lifestyle habits
  • Substance misuse

Mental Health Treatment Programs at Beach House

Beach House Center for Recovery offers comprehensive, evidence-backed treatment for patients with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions. We recognize that it is highly unusual for people to struggle with only a single mental health issue without experiencing overlapping difficulties.

Mental health disorders and addiction exacerbate each other, creating patterns of destructive behavior and cycles of substance misuse. Engaging in addiction behaviors or substance misuse significantly worsens mental health, and deteriorating mental health leads to a greater dependence on mood-altering substances.

At Beach House, we offer the following treatment programs for co-occurring mental health disorders:

  • Dual Diagnosis
  • Integrated Trauma Treatment
  • Treatment for Psychiatric Disorders

Treatment for the underlying mental health disorder is the only way to break the cycle of addiction. At Beach House, we provide dedicated mental health treatment and support for all types of mental health disorders.

Here is a list of mental health conditions we treat most often:

Anxiety Disorders

Feelings of intense fear and physical distress that interfere with normal activities and persist for at least six months are classified as anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders affect approximately 3 million people in the United States.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurological condition characterized by difficulty focusing, sitting still, retaining information, and managing impulses. An estimated 25% of people who seek treatment for substance use disorders also struggle with ADHD.

Behavioral Disorders

Behavioral disorders are addictive impulses related to activities rather than substances like drugs or alcohol. While the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-V) only lists gambling disorder as a behavioral addiction, uncontrolled internet use, sexual activity, and shopping are common problematic behaviors.

Bipolar Disorders

Bipolar disorder is a debilitating, chronic psychiatric disorder defined by abrupt and severe mood changes and energy fluctuations. Bipolar disorder, if not managed effectively, can significantly impede work performance and interfere with personal relationships. An estimated 30% of people with bipolar disorder will develop a co-occurring substance use disorder, complicating the diagnosis and treatment of both the mental illness and the addiction.

Depressive Disorders

Depressive disorders, often called depression, are a class of mood disorders characterized by despair, persistent negative thoughts and behaviors, loss of interest in once-enjoyable activities, memory loss, and sleep disorders. While occasional sadness or grief is common and not considered a clinical abnormality, depressive disorders are experienced unrelentingly, often for weeks or even years. Severe depressive disorders can exacerbate substance use disorder, cause the urge to self-harm, and lead to suicidal behaviors.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorders

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by recurring episodes of intrusive, irrational beliefs and worries (obsessions) that trigger repetitive actions (compulsions). People with OCD commit compulsive acts to minimize intrusive thoughts, but ritualistic behaviors recur.

Personality Disorders

A personality disorder is a condition causing distorted and inflexible thoughts and behaviors. People with personality disorders struggle to understand people and circumstances and often assign blame for their personal and professional difficulties. Although it is possible to experience signs and symptoms of a single type of personality disorder, very often, the symptoms overlap, and several personality disorders can coexist.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychological condition brought on by experiencing or witnessing a highly traumatic event. Symptoms typically include recurring memories of the event, nightmares, and fits of anxiety.

Most people who have endured a terrifying or life-threatening trauma might experience anxiety or difficulty coping for a few days or weeks after the event and recover with effective self-care and support. However, persistent anxiety lasting for months or years, accompanied by negative coping behaviors (self-medicating or behavioral addictions), might be a sign of PTSD.
