At Red Umbrella we feel strongly that eating disorders, depression, PTSD, anxiety, alcoholism and dual diagnosis are dealt with by treatment facilities that have the staff and proven programmes in place. We are by no means disregarding abuse of other substances (see what we treat, but it is important to understand that dual diagnosis and alcoholism are usually prevalent in all these disorders.
Even a drug addict will often abuse alcohol and gradually develop an eating disorder. And PTSD, depression and anxiety sufferers often self-medicate with alcohol because it is a legal substance.
All too often clinics and treatment facilities run 28-day substance abuse programmes that simply just focus on the most prevalent addiction. Unfortunately many do not have very specific programmes in place or the qualified staff to adequately deal with a patient's unique combination of symptoms and issues.
If you are suffering from any of these disorders, regardless of whether you abuse alcohol or any other substances, please contact us for advice before choosing your treatment.
