Dual Diagnosis

At Palm Point Behavioral Health, we understand that the goal of addiction treatment is a happier, healthier life through recovery and relapse prevention. A co-occurring mental health disorder can get in the way of reaching that goal. Located in Titusville, Florida, our dual diagnosis program treats both the substance use disorder and the co-occurring mental health issue at the same time through mental health treatment and addiction counseling.

Substance Use Detox Program

Dual Diagnosis Treatment In Central Florida

Addiction treatment is not-one-size-fits-all. Every person who struggles with substance abuse comes from a different background with different steps along the way.

Often, there is an underlying reason that people who struggle with a substance use disorder began using substances in the first place. One of the more common reasons is an underlying mental health condition. Treatment for one and not the other increases the risk of relapse.

Our dual diagnosis inpatient treatment program treats both the substance use problem and underlying mental health issues together to form a more well-rounded treatment regiment and help you stay in recovery after treatment.

What Is a Co-Occurring Disorder

A co-occuring disorder is a mental health issue that presents with a substance use disorder, or a substance use disorder that presents with a mental health disorder. Typically, a co-occurring disorder occurs as the result of someone attempting to cover up the symptoms of one of the issues. For example, someone with depression may turn to substances to cover up their depression, or someone with alcoholism may suffer from depression related to the disease.

Both conditions must be treated at the same time to address the overall problem and prevent relapse. At Palm Point Behavioral, we offer mental health programs in addition to substance use and dual diagnosis disorders programs.

Common co-occurring mental health disorders

While nearly all mental health disorders can be a part of a co-occurring disorder, some of the more common mental health disorders that coincide with substance use include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood disorders, including bipolar disorder
  • Personality disorders
  • And more

Benefits of Dual Diagnosis Treatment

The goal of addiction counseling and mental health treatment is always to provide you with the skills necessary to maintain sobriety and prevent relapse. Many substance use disorders are caused by mental health disorders and vice versa. Treating one and not the other can increase your chance of relapse after treatment.

Dual diagnosis inpatient treatment helps ensure that both your mental health and co-occurring substance use disorder are addressed, helping to prevent relapses and encourage sobriety well after treatment.
