Treating Addictions Alongside Learning Disabilities

sprout_fl_disabilities_rehabMany people that suffer from addiction also have a learning disability. Learning disabilities such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Dyslexia, Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), and many others, are fairly common and can make it very challenging for an individual to cope with what would otherwise be simple tasks. Recovering from addiction is no simple task and any hindrance in the ability to learn can make recovery even more difficult for the patient.

The Connection Between Learning Disabilities and Addiction

Learning disabilities can make everyday life difficult and frustrating for an individual, especially when it’s not being managed properly. Relationships are more challenging because of difficulty communicating, self esteem drops, coping with unfamiliar situations and dealing with change can be problematic.These challenges alone can increase the likeliness of someone with a learning disability engaging in substance abuse in an attempt to numb the pain or cope with the overwhelming mental struggles going on everyday.

Many people with disabilities such as ADD and ADHD are also on medication for their disability. It is easy for these medications to become addictions when they are readily available and used everyday. Chances of becoming an addict significantly increase after taking the medications prescribed for these disabilities.

Combatting Addiction While Addressing a Disability

Trying to combat an addiction while also trying to keep up with society is extremely difficult and requires a great deal of assistance and support. Sprout Health Group offers extensive care for those battling addiction and personalizes every treatment program to the individual being cared for. While the health providers do not treat learning disabilities, they welcome and provide top notch treatment to everyone, whether they have a disability or not.

We have a complete program that combines specialized therapies and detox processes custom to the needs of each patient. After completing a series of evaluations and assessments, each individual has a new treatment plan created just for them that will address any and all needs, difficulties, and unique situations the individual has. Sobriety for addicts with learning disabilities is not impossible. We have successful treatment options for every person willing to overcome their addiction. Call us today to learn more about our accommodations and what programs we have to fit your specific needs.
