Grace Recovery is a co-ed, dual diagnosis treatment center in Los Angeles, California. Our expert team knows that dual diagnosis care is the only way to provide truly comprehensive care to all of our clients. By addressing all of the issues our clients face, we can set the table for long-term recovery.
Why Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
Dual diagnosis care is essential because mental illnesses co-occur with addiction frequently. In fact, around half of those struggling with addiction are also dealing with some sort of mental illness. Examples of mental disorders that commonly occur alongside addiction include the following:
Of course, any mental illness (or illnesses) can co-occur with any addiction. Every client’s case is different, meaning individualized care is crucial for any chance of success. Unfortunately, a dual diagnosis means that a client is at a higher risk for relapse. This is because many use addictive substances to cope with the unpleasant side effects of their mental disorder. Without healthy coping mechanisms in place, recovery may not last long.
How a Dual Diagnosis Approach Works
Treatment at a dual diagnosis facility focuses on more than just getting you sober. The team at Grace Recovery offers integrated care to address how your mental illness and addiction interact. Then, we provide tools and support to help you form and maintain healthier habits.
Undergoing a dual diagnosis treatment program can take more time than seeking treatment for addiction alone. However, it’s well worth the time and effort. When you acknowledge that your mental health plays a role in your addictive behaviors, it becomes much easier to make positive changes.
Of course, that work comes later in treatment. First and foremost, it’s important to focus on abstinence. Learning healthy coping mechanisms and processing trauma, for example, is impossible with your substance of choice still in your system. For this reason, a quality dual diagnosis treatment program like the one at Grace Recovery will offer a medical detox program.
Once detox is complete, then you can move on to therapies and group sessions that focus on helping you process how your mental illness affects you. Our staff will customize your treatment plan to help you deal with your specific issues and challenges. Then, we teach you the best ways to manage your particular diagnosis to avoid a relapse in the future.
