So, Why BLVD?
With BLVD’s program, we treat both addiction and co-occurring disorders as part of an integrated approach to treatment.
Why does this matter?
Substance-related disorders and psychiatric disorders co-occur at high rates: This is a fact that has been well established. As compared with the general population, people addicted to drugs are twice as likely to suffer from mood and anxiety disorders, with the reverse also true. Unfortunately, recent research has shown that only about half of those living with co-occurring disorders will receive treatment.
The Causes of Addiction
In the simplest terms, addiction is caused by the repeated use of a substance. When the substance repeated is as highly addictive as an opioid, even using it as directed can cause substance dependence. Other significant factors include genetics, previous addictions, and environment. When the user suffers from anxiety, depression, and/or loneliness, drugs can become a way of coping with these painful feelings. But as inevitably happens, the abuse of substances will make these problems worse.
What Are Co-occurring Disorders?
When conditions such as anxiety and depression exist alongside an addiction, they are referred to as co-occurring disorders. The spectrum for these co-occurring disorders can be broad, ranging from mild depression to bipolar disorder and beyond. An integrated treatment program, like the kind we offer at BLVD, understands co-occurring conditions as part of a treatment continuum. Our methods are back up by research: Studies indicate that treating both in an integrated approach yields the best outcomes.
Addiction Remakes the Brain
Once a dependence or addiction is achieved through repeated use of a substance, the result is a chronic disorder of the brain. Through overuse, substances literally change the brain’s circuitry by manipulating the more primitive parts of the brain – especially those associated with survival. Through this re-circuiting, the brain develops a compulsive need for the reward that only drugs can provide. These brain changes cause a distortion in thinking, feelings, and perceptions. Addicts will often behave in ways that baffles the understanding of those around them.
