person at a dual diagnosis treatment centerNot all addiction treatment programs are designed to meet the same needs. Since there are many ways to become addicted and many possible symptoms an individual can experience after developing a substance abuse problem, it’s crucial for individuals to be able to find the programs that can best address their unique needs.

For those who suffer from or exhibit symptoms of psychological disorders, a special type of addiction treatment program may be necessary, allowing the symptoms of both the substance abuse problem and the psychological disorder to be addressed simultaneously. This type of program — called dual diagnosis treatment — is one of Coalition Recovery’s numerous offerings and might be the program you need to achieve a successful recovery.

Why Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

After working with a multitude of facilities, psychiatrists, and LMHCs, we have concluded that addiction rarely happens on its own. What we have come to realize is that consistent use of substances, whether alcohol or drugs, is a coping mechanism for underlying issues. Our treatment focuses on discovering what those issues are. Treating these issues will in turn effectively address the problem of substance abuse. Of course, we also use behavioral techniques like most other facilities, but at the heart of our treatment is treating the entire self from the ground up. This means treating any psychological complications first and foremost.

Our Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program

Fortunately, dual diagnosis treatment is effective. A patient receiving dual diagnosis treatment is essentially receiving the full spectrum of medical treatment. The psychologist will be able to assess the disorder and prescribe medication if needed while the therapist and clinician will work with the individual to adequately mitigate the disease through multiple therapy techniques. When a psychologist can work in tandem with the therapist (and vice versa), the treatment becomes streamlined and more effective. The most popular methods we use include:

  • CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy)
  • DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy)
  • Trauma-based therapies

Treating both of these conditions in tandem is essential.

Whether you have a co-occurring disorder or not, it would still be advisable for a facility to support dual diagnosis. First of all, a facility with the knowledge and expertise of treating mental health disorders will ultimately be more adept at handling the broad spectrum of substance abuse. Secondly, many people who begin treatment can be unaware of their underlying issues. For those who have not had a diagnosis or who are unsure if they necessarily need co-occurring treatment, it is advisable to look for a facility that practices dual diagnosis treatment to ensure you are receiving the most appropriate treatment. If you have been diagnosed with a mental disorder previously, you understand the importance of a dual diagnosis program.
