Central California Rehab Dual Diagnosis Treatment

This component provides chemical dependency and adult mental health services through our own Multi-disciplinary treatment team as well as contracting with behavioral health providers throughout Merced County and the Central Valley.

The Growing Problem of Dual Diagnosis

According to SAMSHA statistics a growing percentage of persons currently entering Alcohol/Chemical Dependence treatment facilities, are diagnosed with dual disorders. This challenges the client as well as the treatment facility to develop a plan in which all issues are addressed in the treatment experience. Central California Rehab is part of that solution, and knows well that clients experiencing co-occurring addiction and psychiatric disorders are the expectation, not the exception, and in response, Central California Rehab has crafted superior care for clients with mood disorders or other psychiatric diagnosis who wish to stop using alcohol or other drugs.

Individualized Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Whether depression, Bi polar disorder, anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive disorder or other conditions, at Central California Rehab we believe that each individual has a unique situation and set of needs they bring to their treatment providers. Central California Rehab treatment services strive to provide the very highest quality dual diagnosis professional care for clients diagnosed with mood disorders and abuse or addictive disorders. Our specialty Psychiatrist is able to evaluate and prescribe psychiatric medications if necessary, to stabilize the individual so they can participate in their treatment.

As the individual progresses in a drug free lifestyle, under the care of our Counselors and Consulting Professionals, the individual increases their repertoire of positive coping strategies to successfully address their mood disorder or other psychiatric disorder in a safe and highly therapeutic treatment setting.

The Three Parts of Dual Diagnosis Treatment

There are three parts to dealing with clinical mood disorders, all equally important to fully address the issue.

1. Psychiatric evaluation and diagnosis followed by regular monitoring of medication with the goal of getting the client chemically balanced.
2. Individual and group therapies addressing specific addictions and co-occurring conditions.
3. The client must become an active participant in accepting, then positively coping with dual disorder.

As the client grows in their sobriety, they also gain positive coping strategies in dealing with their mood disorder, whether depression, Bi-Polar, Obsessive-Compulsive disorder or other conditions.

Comparative to a diabetic who is also alcoholic, quality recovery occurs when both areas are addressed.
