Dual Diagnosis Treatment
What is Dual Diagnosis?
Dual diagnosis refers to the co-occurrence of addiction and another mental
health condition, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, or
a personality disorder.
Our Dual Diagnosis Treatment Philosophy
When treating any mental health concern, but in particular dual-diagnosis issues, we believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach and what works for one person may not work for another. It is important during the initial sessions for us to work collaboratively to understand how the PTSD, depression, or another co-occurring condition is associated with and potentially exacerbating one’s substance use concerns. We utilize a variety of evidence-based practices during treatment depending on the client’s specific presenting problems.
How can COPE help?
Our goal at COPE is make sure we get a thorough understanding of your concerns during the initial session to make sure we can create a treatment plan that is suited for your specific needs. This treatment plan may include individual therapy, group therapy, couples or family therapy, and a discussion about other community resources that can augment treatment. Treatment approaches available at COPE include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Prolonged Exposure among others.
