Dual Diagnosis and Mental Health
“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.” — Dalai Lama
We treat SUD with other mental and physical health conditions and we treat mental heath conditions without any addiction concerns.
The majority of the people we treat for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) also have Dual Diagnoses. Due to the fact that all of our therapists are clinically licensed and seasoned, with 10 – 20 years experience, we are able to provide a high level of professional service which addresses many conditions. These may include common ones such as:
- sleep disorder
- eating disorders
- severe anxiety
- PTSD and depression
- Bipolar Disorder
- controlled personality disorder condition
- behavioral problems
- self-harm syndrome
To some extent, these issues are addressed within the CORE Program, wrapped into the services already provided during treatment. At other times, these conditions require more treatment services than the CORE Program alone can provide. Individual’s specific needs are addressed through our Add-On Menu–allowing you to customize the level of required to be successful.
Our high level of professional treatment is possible because we work as a team: medical doctor, individual therapist, group therapist, case manager, AOD Counselors and acupuncturist all communicate and collaborate extensively concerning each participant’s care, sharing collaboratively about clients’ unique circumstances or struggles.
We do not accept more pronounced conditions into our 30 day program—30 days is just not enough time to treat the needs of these kinds of conditions. Also, the 30 day program does not offer the therapeutic services required for ethical treatment of complex disorders. Most clients presenting with more acute conditions participate in highly customized, longer-term programs sculpted to meet the demands of their unique condition. Costs will vary according to need.
