What’s Different About Dual Diagnosis 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 with both your addiction and any co-occurring mental health disorder you may be dealing with.
At Dedicato Treatment Center we will assure that you receive:
Parallel treatment of your mental health and substance use disorders by the members of a highly trained treatment team
Acknowledgment 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 patient’s.
