Substance Habits

If you or a loved one is struggling with a substance use disorder, there are treatment options. Substance use disorder treatment can be extremely effective, and if you're struggling to control your symptoms or cravings, Dr. Lippmann can help.

Often, people who struggle with a substance use disorder also have another diagnosis with a separate mental health disorder – commonly referred to as “dual diagnosis.” Seeing a psychiatrist for a thorough evaluation can help you get the comprehensive care you need. If you are struggling with substance abuse or another mental health issue, contact Dr. Benjamin Lippmann for help.

How Psychiatry Can Help Treat Substance Use Disorders

Substance use disorders are complex and often require comprehensive treatment. While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treatment, psychiatry can play an important role in substance use disorder treatment. A psychiatrist can provide medication management to help control symptoms and cravings, and they can also provide talk therapy to address the underlying issues that contribute to addiction. In addition, psychiatrists can help develop a relapse prevention plan tailored to your individual needs while using the power of motivational enhancement therapy to reduce risk of relapse.

If you are struggling with addiction or another substance use disorder, do not hesitate to reach out for help. There are many treatment options available, and Dr. Lippmann can help you find the care that is right for you.

Dr. Lippmann offers comprehensive psychiatric services for substance use disorders, including medication management, talk therapy, and relapse prevention. In addition, Dr. Lippmann can provide guidance and support for family and friends who are affected by addiction.


Dual-Diagnosis Treatment Plans

A dual diagnosis means that you have a mood disorder or other co-occurring mental health condition along with your substance abuse disorder, and this can complicate your treatment or push you to self-medicate with substance abuse. Lasting recovery means treating all aspects of your mental health, not just substance abuse. Mental health disorders that commonly occur with substance abuse disorders include:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Bipolar Disorder

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • ADHD

If you have a dual diagnosis or believe you may have one, Dr. Lippmann can help diagnose and treat your substance abuse disorder and mental illness at the same time. Dr. Lippmann can help you get the care you need to address all of your mental health needs.
