When someone has a substance use disorder and is also living with a mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety or PTSD, it is called a dual diagnosis. Co-occurring mental health conditions and substance use disorders affect nearly 8.9 million Americans each year yet only around 7 percent receive treatment for both. Historically these disorders were treated under separate systems of care but emerging studies reveal the benefits of integrated treatment.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment at JourneyPure Serenity Network
Our clinicians stand by research that suggests treating both the addiction and mental health disorder at the same time is more effect and conducive to long-term sobriety. At JourneyPure Serenity Network, each patient is greeted by a team of medical and psychiatric professionals as well as therapists and social workers who work together to determine the best course of treatment. Individual, group and experiential therapies help our patients work through deep-rooted psychological issues while providing the tools for patients to be able to continue the work outside of treatment.
