Individuals suffering from the disease of addiction (or alcoholism) and a mood disorder (depression, anxiety, manic depression, etc.) are considered to have co-occurring disorders or a dual diagnosis.
As difficult as recovery may be, it’s normally even harder for dual diagnosis individuals. Often, they have become addicted to drugs or alcohol while habitually using the substances in a futile attempt to control their mental dysfunction.
Unity Recovery Center in Hobe Sound, FL specializes in caring for those with a dual diagnosis.
The key to successfully treating mood disorders in clients with addictions is eliminating drugs and alcohol from their lives.
Unity believes in surrounding our clients with the resources necessary to begin their journey to recovery.
Each client is evaluated by a psychiatrist and an advanced registered nurse practitioner in order to ensure all physical and mental needs are met.
A treatment regimen is initiated based on the individual client. Further psychiatric consultations are conducted weekly, although the client’s progress is continually monitored. Our psychiatrist is on call 24 hours a day.
The professional staff at Unity empathizes with the plight of those with a dual diagnosis. That’s why we’re able to provide such a highly individualized treatment plan for every client. We offer educational and process groups, individual and group therapy, as well as treatment for the entire family. Each client’s treatment plan is designed to maximize their recovery potential.
There truly is help for alcohol addiction.
