Drug and alcohol abuse often occur alongside anxiety, depression, trauma or other mental health issues. This is called a dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorders. The complexity of dual diagnosis requires specific treatment approaches so that underlying mental issues, which could be contributing to addiction and hindering recovery, are addressed at the same time as substance abuse.
Our dual diagnosis treatment programs guide you through addiction recovery without bypassing the necessary psychiatric treatment for long-term healing. Treatment plans are designed around the needs of each individual client and include:
Our dual diagnosis treatment programs are anchored by a team of multidisciplinary health professionals, working in one setting, to provide coordinated treatment for both mental health and substance abuse problems. This combination of expertise prevents a division between mental health and substance abuse treatment and ensures that clients are treated from a holistic standpoint.
At Elements Behavioral Health addiction treatment centers, clients receive sophisticated care in a nurturing environment where they learn communication and life skills and work on a relapse prevention plan. They learn to adjust to daily life without the use of alcohol and drugs and with a greater understanding of and ability to manage their mental health.
