Miracle Recovery Center offers a Dual Diagnosis Program for individuals who may be struggling with Co-Occurring disorders.
Studies have shown that mood disorders are most effectively treated in a parallel manner with integrated substance abuse addiction treatment, which when treated together, promotes the best possible outcome. Our Dual Diagnosis and Co-Occurring Disorders program consists of individual therapy, group therapy, medication management and coaching, all individualized for each participant’s optimal care and treatment.
When an individual is experiencing symptoms of either a mental health issue or mood disorder and is also struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, this is called a dual diagnosis. Dual Diagnosis treatment is a new innovation in addiction treatment that was introduced in the late 1990’s. Individuals came into addiction treatment expressing mental health disorder symptoms including:
In the past, when these individuals would come into an addiction treatment program, they were treated separately from those who were seeking treatment for their drug and or alcohol abuse only. When it was obvious to clinicians that these disorders were overlapping with each other, the participants were often denied treatment for their mental illness and were told to get treatment for their drug addiction FIRST, that they would not be helped for their mental illness until they could sustain some amount of sobriety.
Unfortunately, because substance abuse is often driven by underlying psychiatric disorders,the treatment received was not the actual help needed to effectively treat a Dual Diagnosis disorder.
Dual Diagnosis and Co-Occurring Disorders
Today, the addiction treatment industry looks differently at dual diagnosis treatment. No longer do they separate psychiatric health and addiction issues. These areas are now treated as part of a continuum.
Clinicians working in the addiction field can now receive specific training and credentials in the treatment of co-occurring mental health disorders. Miracle Recovery Center offers a recovery program and services that are personalized for the individual, with or without Dual Diagnosis.
