Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers in new jerseyDo You Need a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center?

Dual diagnosis treatment programs are designed for those with co-occurring disorders, which means that they struggle with mental health and substance use disorders at the same time. If you’ve been diagnosed with both conditions, it’s likely clear that this kind of treatment program would be beneficial. However, without a formal diagnosis, there are still several signs to look out for that can indicate that dual diagnosis treatment would be right for you.

You use drugs or alcohol to numb your feelings

You practice self-medicating

You need drugs or alcohol to feel “normal”

You suspect you have a mental illness and use drugs or alcohol

Do you find yourself trying to “turn off” your feelings when they become overwhelming? Maybe you get hit by overwhelming stress, hurt, anger, or anxiety. When this occurs, do you turn to a substance, such as drugs or alcohol, to numb those feelings, so you don’t feel the emotions? If so, then you could be dealing with co-occurring disorders.

Or, possibly you have not received an official diagnosis for a mental health disorder, but you suspect you may have one. You could suffer from bouts of depression or feel like you are anxious all the time. Maybe you are dealing with a disordered eating issue. No one knows the struggles you have, and you don’t have a diagnosis, so you use substances to cope with the problem. This is an indicator that you likely have co-occurring disorders. A dual diagnosis treatment plan would best serve you.

What to Expect in Our Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers

Before you begin treatment with ChoicePoint, you’ll go through a thorough evaluation. During the admissions process, our therapists and clinicians will create a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and that will help you achieve your goals. If mental health and substance abuse issues have kept you from completing responsibilities or have caused problems in relationships with loved ones, we’ll work to help you rebuild what addiction has taken away.

During treatment, you’ll participate in some or all of the following:

  • Group therapy
  • Individual therapy
