Dual diagnosis treatment treats your disease at the root.
Mental health and addiction go hand-in-hand.
Clients with co-occurring disorders (COD) typically have one or more disorders relating to the use of alcohol and/or other drugs, as well as one or more mental disorders. A client can be described as having co-occurring disorders when at least one disorder of each type can be established, independent of the other, and is not simply a cluster of symptoms resulting from another disorder.
Highly individualized treatment plans based on diagnosis from Genesis House’s expert Psychiatrist and Clinical Team are crucial in effectively treating our patients and unquestionably the reason for our consistent success in treating Dual Diagnosis conditions.
Here at Genesis House, we've built an experienced interdisciplinary team that's fully trained when it comes to treating Co-Occuring Disorders.
In addition to the Certified Addiction Professionals and Licensed Clinicians (LMHCs, LCSWs) on staff, Genesis House has a full-time attending Psychiatrist that conducts all psychiatric evaluations, follow-ups, medication management, and diagnoses/treats any Co-Occurring Disorders that parallel Substance Use Disorders. Genesis House also employs a full-time Registered Nurse who conducts weekly group lectures. As part of a comprehensive treatment plan, the assigned primary therapist integrates a variety of evidence based modalities into treating the diagnosed mood, anxiety, and thought disorders. When considering any treatment program for yourself or a loved one, it is absolutely imperative to have full-time trained interdisciplinary professionals addressing the Substance Use and Co-Occurring Disorders.
