Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Dual diagnosis, or Co-Occurring disorders, is when someone is experiencing difficulties with substance abuse and mental health issues at the same time. Alternative Options will customize your treatment schedule to address the specific issues with which you may be struggling. We can help you build greater awareness of how your mental health contributes to your substance use along with gaining effective coping skills to achieve sustained recovery in both areas.

Alternative Options offers a multi-disciplinary treatment team approach, which allows us to address a variety of areas in which you may be struggling. Our dual diagnosis treatment center consists of Psychotherapists, Registered Addiction Specialists, Psychiatrists, Registered Dietitians and Certified Yoga Instructors.

Dual diagnosis treatment includes:

There is a high prevalence rate of co-occurring substance abuse disorders and mental health disorders.

Identifying underlying mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, childhood trauma/trauma, eating disorders, when a client comes in for treatment of substance abuse is crucial in assisting our clients in achieving successful recovery. Research indicates that providing integrated services that address both substance use and mental health issues improves the rate of recovery and overall quality of life.

Often individuals struggling with mental health issues turn to substances or addictive behaviors to numb or self-medicate.

These same mental health issues can be contributing factors in relapse, as well. To ensure the highest potential for recovery, our staff spends considerable time getting to know clients and identifying their needs. If a dual diagnosis is identified, a treatment plan is implemented that addresses both substance abuse and identified mental health issues. Each client is assigned a case manager who will assist in customizing a dual diagnosis treatment program that incorporates individual therapy combined with groups specific for the clients identified diagnosis, whether it be mental health, substance abuse, and / or eating disorder related.
