Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders
Substance Abuse And Mental Health Issues
Sometimes the dependence on drugs or alcohol is a result of a mental health issue; other times, the mental health issue is fully exposed because of the substance abuse. Dual Diagnosis treatment is available to clients inside our Residential Treatment program at Retreat at Sky Ridge.</p.
What is Dual Diagnosis?
To accurately diagnose and begin helping a dual diagnosis client, we must first eliminate the substance abuse for a period of time. To achieve that, many dual diagnosis clients start their time at Retreat at Sky Ridge with a medically supervised detox. This reprieve from substance abuse allows mental symptoms, untainted by drugs or alcohol, to surface.
Our Focused Approach
Approximately one-half of the people in the U.S. who have a substance abuse problem also have a mental disorder. There is a huge variety of co-occurring disorders, but our focus is on the following conditions:
- Anxiety-related disorders
- Bi-polar Disorder
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Upon admission into our inpatient treatment program for drug and alcohol addiction, our team of addiction professionals conduct a detailed evaluation of the client. After undergoing that evaluation, if it is determined that a mental disorder is present, that client will move forward with our dual diagnosis rehab.
