Addiction is rarely the only issue facing our clients and is often just a symptom related to underlying mental conditions such as depression and/or bipolar disorder. A person with co-occurring disorders has two separate illnesses, and each illness needs its own individualized treatment plan.We treat both the addictive disorder and underlying mental health disorder to guide the client fully through the recovery process.
Substance abuse (drug and/or alcohol dependence) and a mental disturbance such as (depression, anxiety disorder, etc.) qualifies the person as a dual diagnosis client. Dual diagnosis is not rare, in fact it is common for an individual to struggle with both addiction and a mental illness. Dual diagnosis treatment is a specialized option not all facilities offer.
A proven therapy technique we use for dual diagnosis is Cognitive Behavior Therapy, or CBT. Our compassionate, highly trained staff also provides psychiatric evaluation, group and individual therapy,and confidence-boosting social activities, providing healing and renewal. This integrated approach leads to successful long-term sobriety and a return to a fulfilling, purposeful life for our clients.
