Description of Service
Dual Diagnosis patients suffer from two destructive illnesses: psychiatric disorder and addictive disease. We have developed a program to treat both illnesses simultaneously. The goals for the patient are to:
Accept and recognize the illness.
Develop and improve coping skills.
Eliminate dysfunctional behavior.
Return and live safely in a community setting.
Psychiatrists are on staff.
In addition to attending regular AA/NA meetings, clients participate in individual, group and family therapy and are oriented to twelve-step recovery. Psychotropic medication is administered based on the individual psychiatric evaluation with psychiatric illness and chemical dependency treatment.
