Dual diagnosis is a term that is commonly used when a person has a drug or alcohol use disorder in addition to another underlying or co-occurring mental health problem. Repeated relapse after a period of sobriety may indicate the presence of an underlying disorder requiring treatment.
At Sovereign Health in Chandler, Arizona, our dual diagnosis rehabilitation program is designed for women between 18 and 65 years of age who are recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and co-occurring behavioral health conditions. Co-occurring disorders vary but may include post-traumatic stress disorder, mood disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder and schizophrenia. Our individualized treatment plans provide women with the tools they need to restore their mental and physical health.
Patients receive comprehensive medical and psychosocial evaluation to help clinicians identify any underlying and co-occurring conditions. Our specialized treatment teams address all conditions each patient has concurrently to help promote full recovery and prevent relapse.
