The lack of ability to control participation in destructive behaviors such as gambling, substance use, and other process addictions can lead to profound consequences for a person’s social and professional life, health, financial and legal problems, and deep-seated feelings of shame.

Secondary Diagnoses We Address During Treatment

Many clients come to Helix with secondary or compounding issues in addition to their primary diagnoses. We believe that only by uncovering the underlying causes and related issues, and addressing them concurrently, can lasting change be achieved.

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). A neurobiological disorder that disrupts executive functioning, leading to problems maintaining focus, a lack of impulse control, and problems regulating activity.
  • Sexual Identity Issues. Individuals suffering from sexual identity issues experience confusion and inner conflict regarding their sexual desires and practices.
  • Conversion Disorder. Conversion disorder is a mental health disorder in which psychological distress is expressed through the body. It may include blindness, paralysis, numbness, or loss of the ability to speak.
  • Insomnia. The inability to fall and/or stay asleep and can have deeply negative effects on emotional and physical health and cognitive function.
  • Sexual Disorders. Sexual health disorders include the loss of sexual performance, absence of sexual pleasure, and/or sexual habits, preferences, and behaviors that cause emotional or physical damage.
  • Eating Disorders. At Helix, we have a deep understanding of the relationship between eating disorders and other mental health disorders that enables us to design personalized treatment programs to support your unique recovery needs.
