Substance Abuse   and Brain Injuries

 

Traumatic Brain Injury and Dual Diagnosis

 

It’s a fact: substance abuse plays a role in 33% of accidents resulting in a traumatic brain injury. The use of alcohol and drugs prior to a head injury may have complications that require specialized treatment in a rehabilitation facility qualified to treat the dual diagnosis of substance abuse and brain injury.

 

Most individuals who have an addiction prior to a brain injury continue to experience substance abuse problems during their recovery. Other individuals may become addicted to pain medications as a result of their accident. Addiction not only poses many mental health concerns, but is a substantial difficulty for individuals following a brain injury. The use of alcohol and drugs during rehabilitation  is extremely counterproductive because they impede the regular course of treatment.
