Successful recovery from a dual diagnosis and an addiction is possible, but it requires hard work on behalf of both the client and their team of medical professionals. On their own, mental illness or substance abuse can be a challenge to cope with. When taken together, the two can create hurdles that seem especially difficult to overcome.
Because the scope of a dual diagnosis encompasses both an addiction and a mental illness, New Found Life offers a range of treatment programs that help our clients establish a sober lifestyle and learn healthy coping mechanisms. These include both residential and intensive outpatient treatment.
Though chemical dependency is the chief diagnosis for every New Found Life client, we also offer treatment for common co-occurring diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, PTSD and bipolar disorder. Our staff psychiatrist meets with clients as soon as they get admitted to our Long Beach rehabilitation facility, and as needed throughout their time with us.
The treatment modalities we use for mood disorders include:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy, also called psychotherapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy
At New Found Life, we recognize a dual diagnosis can have a wide-ranging impact on your life, from maintaining relationships with your loved ones to daily activities like sleeping, eating and going to work. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all treatment option that works for everyone, so we’ll work closely with you to design a holistic treatment approach tailored for your unique needs.
Our in-house staff works tirelessly to provide each of our clients with the best care and one-on-one attention. Achieving the goal of lifelong sobriety isn’t easy, but at New Found Life, we will help you get there. Contact us today to empower yourself and recover your long-term mental and physical health.
