Dual Diagnosis: Addictions and Psychiatric Illnesses

Those who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction often suffer from some kind of mental illness as well. The Treatment Center utilizes a form of addiction treatment called dual diagnosis which treats both substance abuse and underlying mental illness.

The connection between these diagnoses is an obvious one. Unfortunately, the symptoms associated with addictions can oftentimes distract from those of psychiatric disorders. Because of this, many treatments are unsuccessful as they are not addressing the root cause. If the psychiatric condition is not addressed, the individual is far more likely to relapse back into the same addictions. Success is our goal which is why we are dedicated to treating both the addiction as well as the condition that may be causing or contributing to it. This provides you with a much greater likelihood of remaining clean or sober and getting your life back!

Treating those with both a diagnosis of addiction as well as of some form of psychiatric illness is a complicated process that necessitates a high level of expertise. Because of this, we guarantee that we provide our clients with trained professionals who are highly skilled in the area of dual diagnosis. The detox program is particularly important when it comes to those who are dealing with psychiatric disorders as withdrawal symptoms tend to be more intense and medical supervision is more often needed.
