Dual Diagnosis

Dual-diagnosis concerns can be a real-life example of the chicken or the egg questions for many. It can be difficult to narrow down which concern was present first; honestly, that’s okay.

The course of treatment would likely be the same either way. The goal of dual-diagnosis treatment programs is to help you learn to cope with and manage all of your mental health concerns in a way that is healthy and realistic for you.  

As a New Jersey dual-diagnosis center, the Wellness Recovery Center provides outpatient treatment services for individuals living in the West Windsor area. 

Wellness Recovery Center NJ is a New Jersey drug rehab that offers comprehensive dual diagnosis therapy.

What Does it Mean to Have a Dual-Diagnosis?

Dual-diagnosis is a phrase used when someone is living with two mental health concerns concurrently. In our case, we are usually talking about mental health concerns that occur in addition to a substance use disorder.  

Individuals who are living with a dual diagnosis may know which concern came first, or they may not. Some individuals have a pre-existing mental health concern that may have been relieved with the use of drugs and alcohol. On the other end of the spectrum, we have individuals who developed mental health concerns after they were struggling with an active addiction. 

If you have been struggling with your mental health and your use of drugs and alcohol, you may benefit from care at a dual-diagnosis treatment center in New Jersey. Wellness Recovery Center offers personalized treatment designed to support all your mental health needs.

Common Co-Occurring Mental Health Concerns

Research has helped us recognize patterns among co-occurring diagnoses. We are now familiar with the common mental health concerns that individuals living with an addiction can also struggle with. 

Common mental health concerns  that we see concurrently with substance use disorders include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Other mood disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Conduct Disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Borderline personality disorder

The most commonly abused substances by individuals who are living with co-occurring disorders include alcohol, tobacco, opioids, stimulants, marijuana, hallucinogens, and prescription medications.

Dual Diagnosis Impacts

How a Dual Diagnosis Can Impact Your Health and Wellness

Individuals who are living with a dual diagnosis are likely to experience more symptoms than those who are not. As an example, someone who is struggling with depression would have their depressive symptoms as well as their addiction causing distress and impairment in their functioning. Depending on the mental health concern, individuals with co-occurring disorders may find themselves experiencing more hopelessness and suicidal concerns. 

It is also important to be mindful of how co-occurring mental health concerns impact each other. You may find that their triggers are intertwined or that the symptoms of one act as a trigger for the other. When this occurs, recovery can feel almost impossible if you are doing it on your own. 

If you are living with a dual diagnosis, you may struggle with:   

  • Isolation 
  • Keeping focus and maintaining attention
  • Changes in your behavior
  • Mood changes
  • Increased engagement in risky behaviors

Located in West Windsor, you will find our New Jersey dual-diagnosis center, which is staffed with adept and experienced mental health professionals. Our holistic treatment program will provide you with support to address the various areas of your life that your mental health and substance use concerns have impacted. Call (866)861-3449 now to learn more.

What to look for in treatment

What is the Best Treatment Approach for Individuals Living with a Dual-Diagnosis?

The best course of action for those who are living with a dual diagnosis is to receive treatment for both concerns at the same time. As mentioned above, co-occurring disorders are often connected in one or many ways. When you receive treatment for both concurrently, you will learn new skills and strategies for managing symptoms of both your addiction and your other mental health concerns. 

The form of treatment that you need will be dependent on your mental health concerns, the severity of your symptoms, and your mental health history. Specialized treatment options and medication management are often available in both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs.

Wellness Recovery Center is the ideal New Jersey dual-diagnosis center because of its location, treatment services, and exemplary staff. Once your treatment journey begins, you will feel like you are progressing towards your recovery goals. Call (811)861-3449 today to speak with a Wellness Recovery Center representative!

We can help

Wellness Recovery Center is a
Top-of-The-Line New Jersey Dual-Diagnosis Treatment Center

If you have been struggling with drugs or alcohol, you may have found yourself isolating yourself and distancing yourself from your friends and family. Isolation is a common experience in active addiction because your mind is focused on your use, which can impact your relationships with friends and family. When you add another mental health concern into the picture, your experience has likely intensified because of other mental health concerns. 

Living with co-occurring mental health concerns is hard, and it can be difficult to find your footing when you want to get help. More often than not, when you have co-occurring disorders, your symptoms are intertwined, which means that they can trigger one another. 

Wellness Recovery Center is a dual-diagnosis outpatient rehab in New Jersey located in West Windsor that understands the challenges that co-occurring disorders can bring. Our facility provides outpatient treatment options, including partial hospitalization programming, intensive outpatient programming, and routine outpatient treatment. 

If you are currently struggling to stop your use of substances, we have partnerships with detox centers that can provide you with the support you need before beginning an outpatient treatment program. 

At Wellness Recovery Center, our staff uses various treatment modalities to ensure you receive all the support and knowledge you need to recover. As an example, everyone learns DBT skills that can be used to help regulate their emotions, increase their distress tolerance, and improve their connections with others. Additionally, we provide specialized treatment options, including our gender-specific group for trauma survivors. 

We recognize the toll that addiction can have on your family and loved ones, which is why we offer a Family Support Program for everyone. This program is designed to provide your family with support and help you navigate a path forward together. 

Examples of additional programming you will have the opportunity to engage in include:

  • Reiki
  • Yoga Therapy
  • Meditation and breath work
  • Art Therapy
  • Music Therapy
  • Kayaking, hiking, and beach days
