Do you or a loved one keep entering treatment over and over? Do you spend months working on yourself, graduate rehab successfully, only to fail again months later? Then you may be a prime candidate for our Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program.

Our experience, having treated thousands of patients, has demonstrated that many people have not one problem, but two or more. So, for example, whilst a patient was getting treated for drug abuse, their depression problem was being ignored. The solution to this was the creation of our leading edge, Dual Diagnosis Treatment program, which treats underlying psychological issues along with drug or alcohol issues.

Dual diagnosis is the term most often used to describe a patient suffering from two disorders at the same time. Addiction very often has underlying issues such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, etc. Both the addiction and the underlying cause require simultaneous, appropriate care and treatment. A correct diagnosis is therefore vital, if the correct treatments and therapies are to be put in place. Here, at Sovereign Health Treatment, our highly qualified staff has a wealth of experience in this field. After an initial evaluation and diagnosis, an individual program is tailored to the specific needs of the client, incorporating clinical therapy, education, group support and holistic therapies such as acupuncture, massage, yoga, etc.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment: How it works

Dual diagnosis day treatment, along with sober living, is offered at our Sovereign Health of California Treatment Center in San Clemente. The primary objectives in treating addiction and dual diagnosis patients in a rehab center are to decrease those costly, repetitive drug rehab services you may be having and, at the same time, to address your whole well-being and not just part of the problem. Our multi-disciplinary team provides an intensive, practical, dual diagnostic treatment modality at our center, to increase harmony and understanding between the patient, family members, friends and community.

We are committed to educating patients about aspects of life skills that will enable them to think conceptually and maintain the ability to think critically after treatment and for years to come.

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar
  • Panic Disorder
  • Addictions

When a patient enters into day treatment and sober living at Sovereign Health, treatment begins with a series of assessments. These assessments will determine the nature of specific psychological issues and the extent to which these issues will affect recovery from alcohol or drugs. The initial assessment is reviewed by our expert clinical team, who will use the results to formulate an individually tailored treatment program to meet the specific needs of the patient.

After this initial meeting, the patient is seen by the clinical director who will discuss the issues that need work while in treatment and will explain the treatment program in detail.

By treating you as a whole person, we can help you get it right the first time and end the revolving door approach that may be causing you so much lasting pain.
