What Is Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment Like?
We are licensed and trained to treat a range of conditions that co-occur with substance abuse. These include issues like:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Depression, bipolar disorder and other mood disorders
- Disordered eating
- Intimacy disorders
- Personality disorders
You’ll participate in individual and group therapy to explore difficult emotions. We’ll also help you develop addiction recovery skills and relapse prevention strategies. Promises offers a blend of treatment options depending on your needs. Our inpatient dual diagnosis programs typically include:
Assessing Your Physical and Behavioral Health
Treatment for dual diagnosis begins with a thorough assessment. Our treatment team will identify mental health issues that are fueling substance abuse. If you’re already diagnosed with psychiatric disorders we’ll confirm or revise them. We’ll assess the extent of substance abuse and its damage to your physical and mental health.
Creating a Personalized Treatment Plan
We use the information from our assessments to create an integrated treatment approach. We finely tune addiction and mental health treatments to your individual needs. You’ll benefit from a dual diagnosis program that considers your:
- Substance use disorder
- Mental health diagnosis
- Preferences and beliefs
- Length of stay
We adjust your treatment plan as your needs change.
Detoxing From Drugs and Alcohol
You may require drug detox depending on the severity of your substance abuse. Detox from drugs and alcohol is safe and comfortable. Promises’ treatment team eases withdrawal symptoms with medication and alternative approaches. We attend to any discomfort from withdrawal symptoms immediately. We care for you around the clock to ensure safety and comfort.
Participating in Individual and Group Therapy
You’ll build a trusting relationship with a primary therapist. Behavior therapy sessions give you a chance to do intense work on roadblocks to long-term recovery. Promises’ therapists have diverse skills in many types of psychotherapy and alternative strategies. They’ll craft a treatment approach that best supports your long-term recovery. Your therapist will help you explore underlying issues like:
- Triggers for drugs/alcohol abuse
- Relationship problems
- Feelings of poor self-worth
- Mental health concerns
- Unhealthy thought patterns that lead to addictive behavior
You’ll also participate in several group therapy sessions each day. Group therapy is an important component of dual diagnosis treatment. It offers an opportunity for connections with peers in recovery. You’ll hear from people sharing similar problems as you. You’ll learn how to better communicate and build self-esteem and resiliency. Promises’ treatment team provides expert guidance in group therapy sessions. We help you address topics relevant to your recovery journey.
Healing for Loved Ones
Substance abuse and mental illness impact the entire family. We offer family therapy so loved ones can begin healing as well. Family therapy provides a safe space to discuss difficult issues.

Why Inpatient Dual Diagnosis Treatment Is Necessary
People with a dual diagnosis are at high risk for relapse if they don’t receive comprehensive treatment. Some research shows people with dual diagnosis don’t do as well in outpatient rehab if they don’t attend inpatient rehab first. Researchers attribute this to less engagement in treatment. Inpatient dual diagnosis treatment gives you space and time to work on issues. You’ll have distance from triggers in everyday life.
Inpatient rehab helps you work intensely to:
Break the Cycle of Self-Medicating With Substances
People with a mental illness such as depression or anxiety often use alcohol or drugs to manage their symptoms. But substance abuse has side effects that can worsen or prolong the symptoms of mental illness. Substance abuse no longer numbs or relieves mental illness symptoms over time. It can be extremely difficult to break self-medicating tactics without the help of mental health professionals and distance from triggers. This is especially true if you don’t replace them with healthy ones.
Attend to Mental Health Problems and Fine-Tune Medication
Drugs and alcohol affect the brain’s neurotransmitters. This can make anxiety and depression symptoms worse. Using alcohol or drugs may increase the symptoms of mental illness or trigger new symptoms. Interactions between alcohol and drugs and certain medications such as antidepressants, mood stabilizers and anti-anxiety medications may also make these medications ineffective. Inpatient psychiatric care provides the time and regular oversight to parse out mental health symptoms stemming from substance abuse, withdrawal symptoms or an actual underlying mental illness. Mental health professionals can tweak the treatment approach as appropriate.
Address Complex Dual Diagnosis Symptoms
Treatment for dual diagnosis issues can be complicated. Mental disorders are caused by a complex interplay between genetics and the environment. Abuse of alcohol and drugs can bring out mental illness symptoms in people genetically predisposed. This makes addiction and mental health treatment more complex. Inpatient rehab addresses the biological and psychological components of addiction recovery. Residential care at a dual diagnosis treatment center can help manage mental health symptoms. It provides space to develop healthy coping skills for long-term sobriety.
