Dual Diagnosis Treatment refers to a personality, mood or compulsive disorder other than addiction that is negatively affecting the quality of a person’s life. This can include conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, gambling, love addiction or codependency. Often disorders such as these will manifest along with substance abuse, and in order to bring about recovery, you must treat the addiction and the dual diagnosis simultaneously.
BALBOA HORIZONS SUCCESSFULLY TREATS DUAL DIAGNOSIS FOR MEN & WOMEN IN AN INSPIRATIONAL ENVIRONMENT
At Balboa Horizons, each client receives a thorough psychiatric evaluation and a comprehensive medical and psychological assessment to help identify any underlying co-occuring disorders as a first step in the recovery process. Nonjudgmental evaluations made with love, acceptance and support assist us in determining and diagnosing the underlying issues related to the addiction and/or resulting trauma.
Our gender specific treatment programs have a high staff-to-client ratio which allows our expert clinicians to provide maximum support for our clients. Group and individual counseling and psychotherapy address specific issues related to having a dual-diagnosis and start laying the groundwork for long term recovery. Some disorders may be helped by medications. In these cases, our psychiatrist will closely monitor the effectiveness of the medication therapy on an ongoing basis.
