Dual-diagnosis treatment in Nashville, also recognized as co-occurring disorders, denotes the coexistence of a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder.

Our approach is grounded in compassion, understanding, and the firm belief that comprehensive healing of the whole person is attainable.

Importance of Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Mental Health

Dual diagnosis treatment, which addresses both substance use disorders (SUD) and co-occurring mental health disorders, is critically important for several reasons:

Effective Treatment

Dual diagnosis treatment recognizes the complex interplay between substance use and mental health disorders. It offers integrated care that is tailored to the individual's specific needs, increasing the likelihood of successful treatment outcomes.

Comprehensive Approach

Dual diagnosis treatment provides a comprehensive approach that considers both the addiction and the mental health condition. By addressing both aspects simultaneously, it helps prevent the cycle of relapse and rehospitalization.

Reducing Self-Medication

Many individuals with co-occurring disorders use substances to self-medicate the symptoms of their mental health conditions. Dual-diagnosis treatment can help individuals find healthier ways to manage their symptoms and reduce their reliance on substances.

Identifying Root Causes

Dual diagnosis treatment explores and identifies the underlying causes of both conditions, such as trauma, genetics, or environmental factors. This understanding is crucial for effective treatment planning.

Stabilizing Individuals

Individuals with co-occurring disorders often experience a high level of instability in their lives. Dual diagnosis treatment aims to stabilize individuals, improving their overall functioning and quality of life.

Empowering the Individual

Dual diagnosis treatment empowers individuals to actively participate in their recovery, make informed decisions about their treatment, and develop self-management strategies for their conditions.

To help manage intense emotions and build healthier coping strategies.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

When appropriate, medications may be used to manage substance cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Individual and Group Therapy
