Philadelphia dual diagnosis suggests that you or a loved one is struggling to give up an addiction because of the mental health condition. The best way for Philadelphia drug addiction programs to help you overcome the substance is by treating both problems at the same time.

A personalized treatment plan is essential for Philadelphia dual diagnosis treatment to work effectively. The personalized treatment allows us to find a realistic solution based on your addiction, your mental health needs and the complications that are contributing to your substance abuse.

Philadelphia alcohol rehab programs and drug treatment facilities may offer solutions for addiction, but the best way to handle any addiction that is related to a mental illness is by focusing on dual diagnosis treatments. Philadelphia drug addiction programs provide the optimal service to assist you in the fight against drugs. Call us today for more information about our Philadelphia dual diagnosis treatments.

How Does Addiction Develop

When you try a drug for the first time, it produces exaggerated effects. Some of these might be psychological in nature; however, a majority of the effects are drug induced. As you continue to engage in the activity of taking drugs and enjoying its pleasurable effects, you begin to reach a state where the dosage does not produce the required effects. This is when you develop what is called a tolerance for the drug.

Under this phenomenon, your body grows accustomed to the drug. Now, whenever you take the dosage that you are accustomed to, your body does not experience the usual high. This of course forces you to increase your drug intake. And the vicious cycle of addiction begins because now you have to continually increase your dosage just to feel a regular high.

Now that you are physiologically dependent on the drug, the chemical balance of your body is changed. At this point, you will realize that you need the drug. This will scare you because you do not want to be dependent on it, so the instant reaction is to stop. Unfortunately, this only further aggravates your health condition because you start to suffer from what are called, withdrawal symptoms.
