Dual Diagnosis

Treating patients with a Dual Diagnosis — an addictive disorder combined with a mental health condition— requires an exhaustive, integrated approach to therapy. At WISDOM Treatment Centers our lavish residential rehab facilities provide a comfortable, structured environment for individuals who face unique challenges in their journey to recovery. At WISDOM the stressors and distractions of daily life are removed, so you can dedicate all your time and attention to learning new coping skills and building a stronger sense of self-worth.

WISDOM Treatment Centers are ideal for clients who need a long-term course of treatment to restore their emotional and psychological health.

Identifying the need for treatment is the first step in getting the help you need to restore balance and health to your life. 

Dual diagnosis treatment is required when a client struggles with co-occurring disorders– alcohol or drug addiction and a simultaneously existing mental health disorder. Addicted individuals may also struggle with complications that include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or personality disorders. If left untreated over a period these conditions can intensify the other conditions affecting you or your loved one sobriety and health.

Mental health disorders have symptoms that are horrible, and addicts use drugs and alcohol to self-medicate.  Drug and alcohol use only provide temporary relief from psychological problems. However, using drugs and or alcohol will just make the issues worse. The lack of mood stability combined with substance abuse makes it almost impossible to gain control of his or her life.  At WISDOM Treatment Centers we specialize in helping dual diagnosis patients in all of our Southern California inpatient detox and residential rehab centers, we’ll treat both the mental health issue and addiction.

WISDOM ’s diagnosis treatment centers are state-of-the-art detoxification facilities, and our Professional medical staff is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to make sure we monitor our clients physical and psychological well being. Our staff makes assessments daily, and each member of our multidisciplinary team participates in the treatment plan for the addict. WIDSOM Treatment Center’s medical professionals make every attempt to use medications for mental health symptoms that will not be addictive. When the dual diagnosis patient is correctly medicated for mental health symptoms, the risk of relapse decreases.

WISDOM’s medical team works directly with the patient, from admission to release, we provide an aftercare plan which reduces the risk of relapse, and the development or worsening of serious illness. Dealing with addiction is always tricky, but those who struggle with more than one problem may find themselves in a complicated situation. Rehabilitation and recovery from two or more factors, whether that includes drugs, alcohol, prescription medications or mental illness, requires a custom program. A dual-diagnosis treatment program helps high-risk patients achieve sobriety and break free from their addictions. WISDOM Treatment Centers view recovery from all angles thoroughly and comprehensively. Full recovery means not just the cessation of drugs or alcohol for a specific period, but a lifestyle where drug use is not a temptation as a result of undiagnosed or misidentified mental illnesses.
