Los Angeles, CA – Desperate for help, a Los Angeles man by the name of Court, turned to Muse Treatment and found lifesaving addiction care there. What may have made the difference for him is that he didn’t just find addiction treatment. He also received a diagnosis and treatment for an underlying mental health disorder.
“They treated my mental status as well as my addiction,” he wrote in a recent enthusiastic 5-star review on Google. Read it at https://goo.gl/maps/9X62RaNpw2p1gZZaA.
“Muse saved my life.” “I Knew If I Didn’t Go There I Would Die” is what a former patient, Court stated. Court sought treatment at Muse’s facility in the Westwood area of Los Angeles. “I left to go there not knowing anyone, but I knew if I didn’t go there, I would die.”
He found a warm, caring staff that supported him through his drug rehab. “I was a handful, that’s for sure, but they never treated me any different than their own. I spent Thanksgiving there and felt like I was at home. The chefs there were amazing and just as warm as the rest of the staff.”
Almost 9 million U.S. adults suffer from mental health problems co-occurring with a substance use disorder, but fewer than 8% get the proper help for both issues together, according to a report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. In contrast, dual-diagnosis treatment is an essential part of the program at Muse.
In helping dual-diagnosis clients, Muse specialists treat addiction as a symptom rather than the underlying condition. Chemical substances may just be a coping mechanism for the results of trauma such as physical or sexual abuse or other conditions.
Muse Treatment in Los Angeles helps clients work through the emotional roots of their addiction, with a combination of therapies customized for them. These may include detox, medical rehab, group and behavioral therapy, and counseling.
It worked for Court, and it’s still working. “I’m still involved via Zoom and plan on keeping in touch,” he wrote. “Love these people and they will always be my family!”
