Overcome Your a Co-Occurring Disorder with Our Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Dual Diagnosis Treatment from Monarch Shores

Sometimes your addiction is not the problem. It is the symptom of an even bigger problem that requires specialized form of rehabilitation treatment called dual-diagnosis treatment.

Any psychological and emotional issue you face along with addiction is called a co-occurring disorder. If not addressed during your rehabilitation, these disorders can make recovery almost impossible. To properly treat clients with co-occurring disorder, treatment centers must have qualified doctors and psychiatrists on staff. At Monarch Shores, our medically-supervised dual diagnosis treatment program addresses your disorder and your addiction. We meet all your recovery needs at our luxury rehab facility in Southern California.

Some of the most common co-occurring disorders we encounter at Monarch Shores include:

Also known as manic-depressive disorder, the condition is characterized by an alternating pattern of emotional highs (mania) and lows (depression). Intensity can vary from mild to severe. Learn More

What is Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis recovery combines the most effective elements of mental health care with substance abuse treatment. We use this approach to help clients with co-occurring conditions who also struggle with drug or alcohol addiction. We understand the importance of addressing both your addiction and co-occurring disorder together in the rehab setting.

If you are in need of a dual diagnosis treatment center but don’t receive the proper care, problems are likely to arise, including:

  • Very Quick Relapse: Since the underlying cause of your addiction is not treated, you risk relapse upon release. When your leave treatment, your depression, bipolar, anxiety, or other mental disorder still exists. This can cause you to begin the process of self-medication with drugs or alcohol.
  • High Probability of Leaving Treatment Early: When you undergo detox from drugs or alcohol, your underlying issues remain. If left untreated, your mental and emotional strain can be too much to take. You might simply check out of rehab so you can have a drink or get high to alleviate stress.
  • Inability to Assimilate into a Group: Treatment centers offer group therapy. This allows you to enjoy a feeling of community, which provide a high success rate for overcoming addiction. If you have an untreated mental illness, you might find it difficult to become part of the group or community.

Components of Treatment

Our dual-diagnosis treatment is an integrative program that utilizes six components in synergy. This multidisciplinary approach helps you work through the process of your treatment and provides you with a plan to remain sober after you leave.
