Dual Diagnosis Treatment Programs
Dual Diagnosis clients suffer from addiction as well as an underlying mental condition. This condition is what separates dual diagnosis clients from those who are suffering from addiction alone. Mental illness and addiction may share many of the same symptoms and both need to be treated at the same time. If these people do not receive treatment from a Dual Diagnosis rehabilitation facility, the problems are more than likely to worsen over time.
There are only a few rehab centers in the country that specialize in this type of treatment. On a daily basis, our treatment facilities help treat dual diagnosis clients while providing counseling and care for the families as well as the client. Some of the clients we work with have tried treatment elsewhere and failed in finding long-lasting recovery. We will help those searching for a new life free of drugs or alcohol find long-lasting sobriety.
Is specialized treatment important?Some programs use a “one size fits all” approach to treating addiction. This will not work in a dual diagnosis case. Rehabilitation for a dual diagnosis case has to be specialized and the mental illness has to be taken into account for treatment to be successful. Those with a mental illness cannot be confronted or torn down about their addiction issues. Our experts in treating co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems will set the pace for treatment so the client does not feel overwhelmed.
Finding the Right Dual Diagnosis Treatment ProgramDual Diagnosis Treatment Programs are well-known for comprehensive treatment as well as care for the individual. It is imperative that the treatment team works together in conjunction with the client, to treat the whole problem, not just the symptoms of the problem. This is done with specialized counselors and doctors working together. Individual treatment plans are the key to recovery for dual diagnosis patients.
Patients with Special Needs
Clients with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are often high-risk individuals. These special case clients, need more care and supervision, to ensure the safety of the client as well as the treatment team. Dual diagnosis patients are more prone to violence and suicide attempts than those who just have an addiction problem they are dealing with. The staff at these centers are more equipped to deal with those who have an underlying mental condition. The unpredictable nature of these types of clients makes the need for a specialized program a necessity not an option for treatment.
