Mental Health and Addiction
Addiction is a disorder that is caused by multiple factors. There is usually an underlying mental health condition that has not been addressed and instead has been medicated with substances that are harming the individual. When addressing mental health symptoms in terms of addiction, it is important to pay attention to four key areas that can provide insight:
Family Mental Health History
Family history of addiction and hereditary disorders can impact one’s risk of developing a substance use disorder. At Sunstone Recovery, our family therapy program can offer a safe space to explore these issues.
Environmental factors can play into an individual becoming addicted to substances, especially for those born into unstable home situations and addiction in the family. Sunstone Recovery’s online services can bring professional help right into your home, helping you to transform from the inside.
Existing Mental Health Concerns
Psychological and mental health symptoms are often the underlying cause of addiction. Sunstone Recovery’s experts can diagnose and provide therapy for mental health conditions to give clients hope and real solutions for a drug-free future.
Brain Chemistry Matters
Brain chemistry and an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain can affect one’s ability to fight mental health symptoms or addiction. Detox with Sunstone Recovery’s substance use recovery programs can help clients find a better balance.
Side Effects of Xanax Abuse
At Sunstone Recovery, we believe that education and understanding are the first steps towards recovery. If you or someone you care about is going through an emotional crisis, it is important to notice if any of the following symptoms are occurring:
- Increased problems in social, family, and/or work relationships
- Loss of employment, financial or legal problems
- Isolation from others, less participation in social events
- Repetitive, intrusive thoughts centered around Xanax use
- Feelings of guilt and shame
- Secrecy and paranoia
- Stealing in order to obtain Xanax or using false prescriptions
It can be an increasingly vulnerable situation to be in if you or a loved one is going through Xanax dependence or abuse. However, when you choose to tell the truth first to yourself and then to trustworthy and professional people who care about you and your well-being, you take the first and most important steps towards recovery. Sunstone Recovery’s team can help you make that step today.
Recovery in the Safety of Your Home
The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us that we can offer high-quality services through telehealth and see effective results.
