What is Dual Diagnosis?

Dual diagnosis is a medical term used to describe the event in which an individual has been diagnosed with a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder concurrently. The origin of a dual diagnosis varies. Some individuals suffering from a mental health disorder turn to alcohol or drugs as a way to self-medicate or cope, while others develop mental disorders as a result of their prolonged substance abuse. This condition is extremely common within the addiction and recovery community, with almost half of the members reporting a diagnosis of co-occurring disorders.


What Does “Integrated Treatment” Mean?

It involves combining the different therapeutic techniques for mental health conditions with the specific treatment strategies for substance use disorders into a comprehensive program that treats the entire person and their various struggles.


What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a structured, goal-oriented type of talk therapy. It can help manage mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety, and emotional concerns, such as coping with grief or stress. CBT can also help manage nonpsychological health conditions, such as insomnia and chronic pain.

CBT is based on several core principles, including:

  • Psychological issues are based on problematic or unhelpful patterns of thinking.
  • Psychological issues are based on learned patterns of unhelpful behavior.
  • Psychological issues are based on problematic core beliefs, including central ideas about yourself and the world.
  • People experiencing psychological issues can learn better ways of coping with them. This can help relieve their symptoms and improve their mental and emotional health.

What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)?

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of talk therapy for people who experience emotions very intensely. It’s a common therapy for people with borderline personality disorder, but therapists provide it for other mental health conditions as well. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is especially effective for people who have difficulty managing and regulating their emotions.


What is Solution-Focused Therapy (SFBT)?

Solution-focused therapy (SFBT) also known as solution-focused brief therapy or brief therapy, is an approach to psychotherapy based on solution-building rather than problem-solving. While it acknowledges present problems and past causes, SFBT predominantly explores an individual’s current resources and future hopes. This can help them look forward and use their own strengths to achieve their goals.

The approach was founded on seven basic philosophies and assumptions:

  • Change is both constant and certain.
  • Clients must want to change.
  • Clients are the experts and outline their own goals.
  • Clients have resources and their own strengths to solve and overcome their problems.
  • Therapy is short-term.
  • Emphasis is on what is changeable and possible.
  • Focus on the future – history is not essential.
