Counseling for Patients Who Intended Overdose

When you or someone you love attempts an overdose, you may be feeling a range of difficult emotions. Find out how to get the best counseling available, and find treatment for depression, addiction and other family and mental health issues surrounding the attempted overdose.

Treating Issues that Cause Overdose and Suicide

If you intended to overdose on drugs or alcohol, you have probably experienced some difficult emotions. When a person attempts suicide, it can be considered hitting “rock bottom.” Every overdose attempt is different, and each overdose is caused by different reasons. In order to prevent overdose and overcome the powerful emotions of suicide, you must treat the underlying issues behind the attempt. Some of the most common reasons behind overdose attempts include the following:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Addiction or substance abuse
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Hopelessness or feeling trapped
  • Borderline personality disorder

Family Support for Suicide Attempts

When someone you love attempts suicide, you may be seeking the best treatment possible for that person. But what about you? Often, families are left behind in the treatment plans for people struggling with an overdose attempt. There are many new and reputable treatment centers that include the whole family in the treatment process. These new programs allow for family support and family counseling along with the rehab care that the person who attempted an overdose needs. When you seek treatment, be sure to ask about family care, family visitation and support for family members.

Addiction Treatment with Integrated Care

If you or your loved one is struggling with addiction, you may want to consider integrated treatment. Integrated treatment is a specialty treatment designed for Dual Diagnosis patients. Dual Diagnosis is the term that applies to people who are struggling with a mental health disorder along with a substance abuse or addiction problem. Integrated treatment works to heal the person as a whole. By treating both the mental illness and the substance abuse issues at once, you can save time and prevent relapse in the future.
