Military veterans experience events and go through challenges much different than that of the general population.

It is because of these detrimental experiences that many military veterans face different kinds of issues that can impair their ability to live a suitable life after serving.

As many as 20 percent of military veterans develop a mental health disorder.

The most common disorder among veterans is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Often, to self-medicate, they will also use substances as a palliative solution.

Eventually, they may develop an addiction to the substance.

Many veterans struggle with a dual diagnosis of a mental health disorder and substance use disorder (SUD).

If you are one of these veterans dealing with these ailments daily, you must know you are not alone in this battle.

Dual Diagnosis

An individual who has a mental health disorder and abuses substances can be considered to have a dual diagnosis.

However, it can sometimes be challenging for clinicians to diagnose individuals with a mental health disorder if they have also been abusing substances.

This is because substance abuse can cause many symptoms of mental health disorders.

It can also create mental health disorders after substance use has ceased.

It is important to seek treatment for a dual diagnosis because substance abuse can exacerbate symptoms of a mental health disorder and vice versa.

What Treatment Is Available for Military Veterans?

Mental health treatment is unique to each person, each mental health disorder, and each situation. Especially the unique experiences military veterans face. There are several methods and forms of treatment that vary for everyone. Veterans share common experiences in the military; however, just because they have similar experiences does not mean they will have the same treatment. Just as the experiences differ, so will the treatment.
Several psychotropic medications and different forms of psychotherapy can treat different kinds of disorders. The most common disorders among veterans, PTSD and SUD, are typically treated through different pharmaceutical interventions and different kinds of psychotherapy. Inpatient and outpatient treatment are offered at many mental health treatment centers or rehabilitation clinics. However, if the case is too severe to receive treatment in an outpatient setting, then admission into a mental health treatment center or rehabilitation clinic is the next step to obtain the proper treatment.
Mental health treatment services are provided by healthcare professionals, such as psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, psychiatric nurses, and social workers. Several counselors have experienced similar situations and issues, so they can relate and understand more thoroughly the problems. Typically, only a licensed medical doctor such as a psychiatrist can prescribe medication. However, in some states, psychologists can prescribe medication.

What is Inpatient Treatment?

Inpatient treatment programs are residential facilities that an individual receives treatment for mental health and addiction disorders. The facility provides a professional environment where they receive 24-hour care. Many methods of treatment are available at inpatient treatment programs, including those for veterans who are dually diagnosed.

Inpatient Treatment and Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment

Inpatient treatment programs provide many forms of therapy. One of the most effective and commonly used methods to treat dual diagnosis is Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT). This is a model designed specifically to treat dual diagnosis. It is an empirical-based practice that combines the most effective treatments for substance abuse disorders and mental health disorders.
Major life changes and concepts are integrated into the treatment, such as sobriety, mental health disorder symptom management, and how to live independently. IDDT teaches coping skills through small changes that overlap and incrementally effect change over time. This is known as a stages-of-change approach. This form of treatment is also individualized to meet the goals and needs of a dually diagnosed individual through various steps. IDDT has been proven to reduce the chances of relapse, arrests, and hospitalization. It has also been proven to increase the chances of a better quality of life, stable housing/employment retention, and independent living.

Where Veterans Can Receive Inpatient Treatment for Dual Diagnosis

U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs

The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) is a federal agency that provides lifelong healthcare for veterans. The agency offers a variety of services, including mental health treatment and substance use treatment. There are 1,700 physical locations across the U.S. Eligible U.S. veterans can receive treatment based upon individual healthcare needs. Inpatient programs are also available. Dual diagnosis is a common disorder treated through the VA.

Private Practice

Another option to consider is receiving dual diagnosis inpatient treatment at a private practice. All therapy sessions including individual, group, and family therapy are provided in a professional setting under the care of licensed healthcare professionals such as a psychologist or counselor.
A psychiatrist or psychologist can accurately provide an accurate psychiatric assessment and diagnosis so that the most effective treatment methods can be explored. Psychiatrists can also practice in a private setting. Many mental health and addiction treatment centers and rehabs are considered a private practice. Not all insurance carriers will cover the costs of some private practices. If you choose to receive treatment from a private practice, it is important to find mental health and addiction treatment centers near you that are within your network.

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers

Inpatient dual diagnosis treatment can be received at substance abuse treatment centers or rehab. Individuals can be treated for a variety of mental health disorders in addition to substance abuse and addiction. Most substance abuse treatment centers provide outpatient and inpatient services. An individual receiving outpatient services does not always have to remain at the center. The individual will attend treatment services at the substance abuse center a determined number of times per week.
An individual receiving inpatient services requires him or her to remain at the center for the duration of his or her treatment. Common services provided by substance abuse treatment centers typically include medical detoxification, individual and group therapy, specific psychotherapies and other life skills and coping training, and medication management.
