Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center
Dual diagnosis treatment includes therapy for addiction and substance abuse as well as the co-occurring psychological disorder. Clinicians from both our substance abuse and mental health programs provide integrated dual diagnosis treatment, working together to develop a unified and coordinated treatment plan that’s personalized to your loved one’s needs.
“Dual diagnosis” and “co-occurring disorders” are terms that are used interchangeably to define individuals who have some type of psychiatric illness in conjunction with a substance abuse diagnosis.
RehabinNYC employs highly qualified professionals who have the expertise to provide diagnosis and treatment protocols designed to treat the whole person. Individuals with a mental health diagnosis, such as panic disorder, major depression, bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD, or personality disorders, who find themselves in the clutches of addiction, need the kind of individualized professional care we offer. When you seek treatment at Avalon Malibu, a thorough psychiatric examination is done to determine the extent of the addiction and how co-occurring mental health issues relate.
We offer our clients a high level of care that is compassionate, supportive and focused on their overall health and recovery. Going through both treatment programs at once may seem counterintuitive, but the research is clear
What Is a Dual Diagnosis?
Dual diagnosis occurs when an addiction to drugs or alcohol is accompanied by a mental or emotional disorder. As some mental and emotional disorders can hinder a successful recovery from drug or alcohol addiction, seeking help for the disorder is vital to overcoming the addiction.
When it comes to substance abuse, we use support groups to aid in treating co-occurring issues that including the following:
- Mood Disorders
- Bipolar Disorders
- Personality Disorders
- Attention Disorders
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
The risk factors for co-occurring disorders are similar to those of mental disorders and substance abuse in general. Risk factors include experiencing abuse or trauma, having a family history of mental disorders or drug addiction, and using drugs in teen years. Men attend dual-diagnosis treatment centers more often than women, which may suggest a higher occurrence among males.
What Other Issues Can Arise From A Dual Diagnosis?
When someone recieves a dual diagnosis, this can very often lead to other health problems or disease. The reason for this is that people suffering from a mental condition or from substance abuse addiction may tend to neglect other areas of their health. Also, many times a dual diagnosis can make the symptoms of any health condition worse and can also cause emotional health to be compromised. There are also social issues which can arise from a dual diagnosis. When someone is experiencing twice the load of symptoms as a person who might only have one diagnosis, it can be especially difficult to relate to other people. It’s not unusual for these individuals to feel isolated and they may even distance themselves from others.

RehabinNYC Dual Diagnosis Treatment center provides a holistic approach to treatment that takes into account the unique situation, inclinations and needs of the individual. There are multiple aspects of a person’s life that lead to a dual diagnosis and are impacted by it, such as trauma, lack of resources and support, oppression, spiritual crisis, and the impact of drugs and medications on the individual as well their family. By looking at the whole person and their unique needs, staff members are able to create an individual program of care that is ethical, competent and effective.
