Dual Diagnosis Treatment

dual diagnosis treatment programA person with a dual diagnosis has both a mental health issue and a substance use disorder. In fact, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) estimates that a third of all people experiencing mental illnesses and about half of people living with severe mental illnesses also experience some type of substance abuse issue. For many people, the first step is medication management. Having the right combination of medications can make a monumental difference in the life of a person struggling with mental health issues. At Sunrise Vista, patients with a primary mental health diagnosis can receive mental health treatment and substance use treatment if they need it.

What Mental Health Issues Require Counseling?

Anyone who is feeling overwhelmed by their feelings can benefit from seeing a counselor. The amount of time you spend in mental health therapies will depend on the severity of your mental health issues and the goals you and your therapist set together. For patients who need an additional level of care, a Canton, Ohio, psychiatric hospital can provide opportunities for growth and healing. Whether you are looking to learn skills to manage a specific crisis or a general mental health issue, Sunrise Vista can help.

Our dual diagnosis therapists have the training and experience to help people manage various mental health problems. Our dual diagnosis mental health programs offer people the tools they need to heal.

There are some specific mental health treatment programs our therapists offer, including:

Disorganized Thinking, Disorganized Living

A little disorganization in life is to be expected, especially for busy adults and teens, so we may not know that it is time to seek psychiatric support. When our thoughts or actions have become very disorganized due to an underlying mental health condition, our symptoms may be debilitating enough to change the landscape of our lifestyle or affect the ecosystem of our household. If these behaviors are not addressed early and replaced with healthy coping mechanisms, we can go on to hurt ourselves, our families, and our community. Getting organized starts with a structured routine; we can help with this at Sunrise Vista.

Outpatient Dual Diagnosis Treatment

An outpatient treatment center offers you the perspective of fusing your real life with your life in recovery with the full support of our care professionals. This means your wellness is rooted in the reality of your life. You can make a more convenient plan for taking time for yourself. With an intensive outpatient treatment program, you have the flexibility to work or care for your loved ones while you navigate recovery.

Inpatient Psychiatric Care 

If you are using alcohol or drugs as a way to self-treat your depression, you don’t have to struggle, untreated and alone. The most effective dual diagnosis care does not have to be out of reach. While it might feel overwhelming to spend time in a psychiatric hospital, our inpatient mental health programs at Sunrise Vista provide comfortable, structured living arrangements and therapy sessions for people who are struggling in their daily lives.

What causes it, how it affects someone, how long it lingers, how easy it is to treat — these are all dependent on a person’s individual situation. Mental health issues are often linked to substance use disorder, so staying ahead of your symptoms and seeking treatment is critical. If you are struggling with symptoms of a dual diagnosis, we would be honored to help you on your journey to wellness.
