Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center

Battling a double-edged sword

When people cope with multiple conditions simultaneously, they often encounter unique challenges during their treatment. Doctors might ignore or fail to notice one of the disorders, causing the patient’s health to grow worse over time. The multiple conditions might exacerbate each other, making patients more susceptible to relapse and/or additional psychiatric problems. For these reasons, recognizing and treating co-occurring conditions is vital.

At Sovereign Health, our dual diagnostic treatment centers treat individuals who are struggling with multiple mental health and/or substance dependencies, also known as co-occurring conditions. Here at Sovereign Health, we recognize that a patient’s primary diagnosis might obscure another underlying problem that is keeping him or her from getting well. For this reason, all of our patients receive an intensive physical and psychological evaluation prior to entering our program. Our highly trained, compassionate staff leaves no stone unturned when it comes to dual diagnosis rehabilitation.

What are co-occurring disorders?

Co-occurring disorders refer to the identification of two or more conditions coexisting within an individual. This unique type of diagnosis not only encompasses combinations of mental illnesses and addiction, but also includes the management of multiple mental disorders or addictive behaviors. For instance, a person with co-occurring disorders might have both obsessive-compulsive disorder and schizophrenia, depression and alcoholism, or alcoholism and opioid addiction, to name only a few examples. Dual diagnosis treatment is specifically designed for individuals who are coping with multiple disorders and wish to gain dual diagnosis recovery.

What is Addiction?

Addiction is a disease that manipulates a person’s sense of reward, motivation, memory and a number of related neurological functions.

Symptoms of co-occurring disorders

Co-occurring disorders may be comprised of either mental disorders, addictive dependencies or both.

Symptoms of substance dependence or addiction include:

  • Feeling a compulsion to use the drug regularly
  • Failing to stop using the drug
  • Making sure the drug is always available
  • Spending money on drugs even though one cannot afford it
  • Stealing or committing other illegal acts to get funds for drugs
  • Feeling the drug is needed to deal with everyday problems
  • Driving or doing other risky activities while under the influence
  • Increasing the amount of time spent on obtaining, using and recovering from drug use

Loved ones must also be on alert for symptoms of mental illness including:

  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Other anxiety disorders

Lastly, when individuals experience repeated relapses or setbacks even after completing different forms of treatment, they may have an undiagnosed co-occurring condition.

Sovereign Health’s Dual Diagnosis Program

In Sovereign Health’s dual diagnosis treatment centers, our clinicians use evidence-based treatments to treat patients struggling with substance addiction as well as a wide variety of mental illnesses — including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and schizophrenia. We are proud to provide our patients with individualized treatment plans with a heavy emphasis on improving cognition and increasing quality of life.

During the admissions process, all patients receive a thorough physical and psychological examination to help clinicians identify any undiagnosed conditions. Our dual diagnostic treatment centers treat all of these conditions concurrently, enhancing each patient’s likelihood of achieving a full recovery.

What our program offers

Sovereign Health provides patients with top-rated dual diagnosis treatment centers. Following the initial three-step assessment upon admission, our catalog of programs is specialized to the patient’s personal needs and utilizes a dynamic combination of therapeutic methodologies. For example, if a person has a substance-based dependence, a mandatory detox will be completed first. In addition, all treatment plans will include individual cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and process group sessions that cover various topics. Other treatment options include:

  • Yoga
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise
  • Meditation
  • Art
  • Equine therapy

No two patients have an identical set of needs, so every patient at Sovereign is diagnosed and treated on an individual basis. All these steps and precautions are taken to optimize one’s recovery, regardless of how many conditions a patient may have.

Why choose Sovereign Health?

One of the most distinguishing features that sets Sovereign apart from the rest of the dual diagnosis drug rehab facilities is our focus on mental health issues, even when the primary ailment is substance abuse or addiction. This is especially important in the case of co-occurring disorders. Most treatment providers only combat the use of drugs and fail to notice the hidden disorder lurking within, which can lead to continued complications. In contrast, our dual diagnosis treatment programs make sure to treat the whole person.

In addition to treating all of the conditions an admitted individual may have, the holistic approach we employ also incorporates the role of loved ones in recovery, with the ultimate goal of ending the cycle of addiction and affliction once and for all. Every effort is made to provide each one of our patients with an optimal health outcome. For more information about our dual diagnosis treatment centers, please call our 24/7 helpline.
