What Is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
Dual diagnosis treatment at Dana Point Rehab combines behavioral therapies, and pharmacotherapy (the use of medications) into a comprehensive drug rehab program. The first stage of dual diagnosis treatment may start with drug and alcohol detox, which helps patients overcome physical dependence on drugs and alcohol. Following detox, patients transition into an inpatient residential rehab program to receive behavioral therapies that address both the addiction and mental illness.
Evidence-based therapies used at drug rehab for dual diagnosis include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy, and contingency management. These therapies help patients and therapists identify the root cause of one or both disorders, and teach patients how to navigate their lives in a healthier, more functional and productive way without turning to drugs and alcohol. Patients may also be prescribed medications that help them manage symptoms of the substance use disorder and their mental illness.
