Mental Health Intake and Counseling

When you seek drug addiction help, it’s essential to address every factor that plays a role in your substance abuse disorder. MERIT’s mental health intake and counseling services ensure comprehensive treatment. We provide mental health assessments, diagnoses, and counseling for individuals with co-occurring conditions like PTSD, anxiety, depression, bipolar, and personality disorders. Our CARF-accredited drug treatment center offers integrated service, with counselors holding dual credentials from the state of Washington for mental health and substance use disorder counseling.

Our Comprehensive Mental Health Assessments Ensure Successful Recovery

When you begin your substance abuse rehab journey at our treatment centers for addiction, our primary substance use disorder counselors will perform a thorough mental health intake. Following your assessment, we’ll make internal referrals to our co-occurring mental health programs, recommending therapies based on your unique needs or requests.

Benefits of Mental Health Counseling in Addiction Rehab

Drug and alcohol addiction goes beyond physical dependency. Your mood and thinking patterns play a significant role in recovery. Simultaneously treating mental health while addressing addiction detox needs ensures you have comprehensive addiction support. Undergoing mental health counseling during your rehabilitation journey benefits you in many ways:

• Identifying events, relationships, and patterns that contribute to core substance abuse issues
• Providing evidence-based tools to help you overcome addiction, including individual and group therapies
• Ensuring a strong support system, including family, friends, and peers undergoing treatment
• Reducing the risk of relapse and teaching you how to make healthy, positive choices

Mental Health Therapy and Treatment Options for Addiction Recovery

MERIT offers numerous drug rehabilitation program options:

Individual counseling

One-on-one, private sessions with our compassionate counselors ensure you have the necessary tools to cope with obstacles and change harmful patterns. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) are just a couple evidence-based treatments we offer.

Group counseling

Sharing substance abuse recovery experiences with others in a similar situation and working together toward achieving your goals, such as with 12-step and community programs, provides a supportive environment.

Family counseling

We’re here to work with you and your loved ones to improve relationships and manage challenges on your substance abuse rehab journey.
