How Do Our Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers in Georgia (Metro Atlanta) Work?

At our dual diagnosis treatment centers in Georgia, we understand that everyone who develops a mental illness and a co-occurring addiction is impacted in a different way.

Treatment focuses on two general goals: 

Each of these efforts involve a combination of education, therapy, and interpersonal support. Mental health disorders and addiction can isolate people from those who care most about them. These disorders also often cause people to feel shame or guilt.

During dual diagnosis treatment, our clients discover that they are not alone. They also learn that they are valuable individuals who deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

What Exactly Is a Dual Diagnosis Disorder?

Dual diagnosis is the clinical term for the simultaneous presence of a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder (addiction). 

Dual diagnosis is not uncommon in the United States. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) published the following dual diagnosis statistics:

Unfortunately, NIDA also reports that more than half (52.3%) of adults who have dual diagnosis have not received mental health services or addiction treatment.

Addiction and mental illnesses are treatable conditions. But people who have dual diagnosis need comprehensive professional treatment that can address the full scope of their needs. For adults in Georgia, dual diagnosis treatment centers such as Peachtree Recovery Solution can be sources of life-changing care.

The Difference Between Dual Diagnosis Treatment and Treatment Centers For Addiction

At Peachtree Recovery Solutions, our dual diagnosis treatment center in Georgia and metro Atlanta treats those with substance use disorder as a primary program, with secondary mental health disorders.

Our program may not be appropriate for those with a primary mental health disorder. If this is the case, we will point you in the right direction to a more appropriate facility.

As a dual diagnosis treatment center, we treat the underlying root causes of addiction, whether that may be a mental health disorder, stress, or something else, and address these symptoms with appropriate and effective modalities including medication-assisted treatment, psychiatric evaluations, and more.

When you contact our admissions staff, we work with you, our medical director, and our entire clinical team to make sure you can benefit from our therapeutic environment and find a life of sustainable recovery.
