The drug rehab category at Crest View Recovery is a general blog topic related to rehabilitation. There are several different types of treatment options for drug addiction, here we will discuss them each. It is common to have a lot of questions before seeking treatment. Each person’s addiction is different, and therefore there is no one type of rehab.

There are also several therapy options during drug rehab. This will include things like family counseling, individual counseling, and group. At Crest View, we also offer dual diagnosis for people who are suffering from both a mental illness and addiction. Many times someone who is suffering from addiction has an underlying mental illness. At Crest View Recovery, we work to heal the addiction and the mental illness by treatment them each separately.

The resources we provide are not meant to be taken as professional medical advice. If you or a loved one is dealing with an addiction or a mental illness, please contact your doctor for treatment options. If you do not have a doctor that you can speak with, you can contact our team. Please call us at (866) 327-2505 to learn more.
