Co-Occurring Disorders (Dual Diagnosis)

What’s Different About Dual Diagnosis & Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment?

Dual Diagnosis recovery blends the most successful aspects of mental health care and substance abuse treatment. Instead of drawing a hard line between psychiatric health and addiction, at Dedicato Treatment Center these areas are treated as part of a continuum. At Dedicato Treatment Center our team of licensed and certified mental health and addictions professionals will help you deal both your addiction and any co-occurring disorders you may be dealing with. At Dedicato Treatment Center we will assure that you receive:

Co-Occurring Disorders - Dedicato Treatment Center
  • Parallel treatment of your mental health and substance use disorders by the members of a highly trained treatment team
  • Acknowledgement of the importance of psychotherapeutic medications, such as antidepressants or anti-anxiety meds, in the treatment of any co-occurring disorder(s) you or your loved one may be experiencing
  • A supportive approach to therapy that reinforces self-esteem and builds self-confidence instead of confronting you with negative and aggressive statements
  • An inclusive treatment strategy that brings partners, spouses, children and other household members into therapy for individual counseling, group meetings or education

Getting a Dual Diagnosis: To receive a Dual Diagnosis, you must meet the criteria for a mental health disorder as defined by the current version of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Published by the American Psychiatric Association, the DSM-5 is the guideline our mental health professionals use to make the appropriate diagnosis. To assure accuracy and effectiveness in “diagnosing”, our clinical team of licensed and certified mental health clinicians and addictions professionals meet weekly to discuss and conceptualize each patient case, so we can collaborate and develop a treatment plan with our patients.
