Dual Diagnosis Treatment

A Holistic Approach to Dual Diagnosis Treatment in Los Angeles

In the realm of substance use disorders, it is often observed that a co-existing or dual disorder can either be a root cause or a consequence of the addiction. As per the Journal of the American Medical Association, 37% of individuals with alcoholism and 53% of those with drug addiction are also grappling with at least one severe mental health condition.

At 360 Integrated Recovery, we firmly believe in treating the individual as a whole, addressing both the addiction and the underlying mental health issues concurrently. Single-sided treatment can hinder recovery, even negating progress, leading to feelings of discouragement and disillusionment. Our comprehensive assessment process ensures we understand the depth of your challenges, enabling us to treat any mental health issues intertwined with your diagnosis.

Exploring the Intersection of Addiction and Mental Health

Identifying which condition—mental illness or addiction—came first can often be a complex task. Trauma or depressive disorders might trigger substance abuse in some, while in others, addiction may pave the way for mental health issues. When these conditions coexist, they tend to amplify each other’s effects. Both substance abuse and mental illness can have shared origins, including genetic and environmental factors such as prolonged exposure to stress or trauma, especially during the critical developmental phases of an individual’s life.

Genetics can influence both mental health and substance use disorders. For instance, certain genes regulate neurotransmitters—the brain’s chemical messengers—impacted by both addiction and mental health conditions. The National Institute on Drug Abuse highlights that individuals diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often exhibit increased alcohol craving symptoms.

Individuals with mental health conditions may resort to substance use as a coping mechanism for their symptoms, which unfortunately intensifies these symptoms over time. Similarly, addiction can trigger mental disorders by impacting the same brain regions that mental illnesses do.

Your Path to Dual Diagnosis Treatment Begins Here

Upon your arrival at our serene Los Angeles facility, we warmly welcome you and introduce you to the dedicated team who will be assisting you throughout your recovery journey. Our medical and clinical team conducts a thorough examination and assessment to chart the best treatment course for you.

Medical Detox and Medication-Assisted Treatment: A Safe Start to Your Journey

Detoxification, the process of purging all traces of drugs or alcohol from your body, is a crucial first step. Undertaking detoxification alone can be hazardous due to severe withdrawal symptoms associated with many substances.

At our Los Angeles center for dual-diagnosis treatment, we provide medication-assisted treatment to help manage cravings and ensure your comfort during your recovery journey. Our medical staff supervises a safe, non-invasive detox process, after which we delve into the root causes of your substance use disorder, promoting physical and mental healing.

Comprehensive Treatment for Every Co-Occurring Disorder

Our experienced therapeutic staff is trained to address a wide variety of co-occurring disorders, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Trauma
  • Eating Disorders

Through personalized treatment by our licensed professionals, we aid you in understanding the interplay between your dual disorders and their role in your distress. Our programs include both residential treatment for those at higher risk of relapse and outpatient treatment for those who require professional support while continuing their daily routines at home.

Innovative Therapies Tailored to Your Needs

At 360 Integrated Recovery, we offer a blend of group therapy, individualized treatment sessions, and humanistic therapies like music therapy, art therapy, and exercise sessions. These therapies, centered on self-acceptance and present-focus, can be particularly beneficial for dual-diagnosis treatment

Trauma-Informed Care: A Compassionate Approach to Healing

Understanding the prevalence of trauma in the lives of our patients, our dual-diagnosis program integrates trauma-informed care, a holistic approach that acknowledges the impacts of various traumatic experiences, including combat, loss, adverse childhood experiences, domestic violence, and emotional abuse. Our goal is to foster a safe and open environment, where communication is clear and honest. This collaborative approach empowers patients with positive reinforcement to combat negative self-perceptions.

In addition, we employ somatic therapies, using mind-body exercises to help release traumatic memories, further supporting your healing process.

Behavioral Therapy: Replacing Unhealthy Patterns with Positive Behaviors

Behavioral therapy forms a core part of our treatment for co-occurring disorders. This therapeutic approach aims to identify and alter unhealthy behaviors and thought patterns. Cognitive behavioral therapy, a highly effective form of behavioral therapy, helps patients recognize how their thoughts influence their actions.
