Dual diagnosis

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.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment Teams

Our treatment teams include specialized physicians, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, addiction counselors, nurses, case managers, patient advocates, house managers and ancillary therapists and staff. But at Sovereign Health, the most important member of the treatment team is the patient. Teams work together with patients to set goals and plans of care that combine therapeutic modalities for optimal outcomes in our dual diagnosis treatment programs.

Levels of Care

Our Chandler, Arizona facility offers different levels of care depending on patient acuity and their stage of recovery. All of our residential and outpatient programs are licensed by the State of Arizona Department of Health Services and are accredited by the Joint Commission. Levels of care offered for patients in our dual diagnosis rehabilitation programs include:

  • Residential treatment (RTC): Generally consists of a 30 to 90 day program where patients live in supervised housing and receive full-time treatment and care.
  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP): Patients receive approximately five hours of treatment Monday through Friday in partial hospitalization, but can live independently at home or sober living housing.
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP): Patients attend treatment sessions for approximately three hours three times per week and can live independently or in sober living housing. Patients who are transitioning back to work, school or family responsibilities benefit from the support they receive in this level of care as they build their sober network in the community.
  • General outpatient: General outpatient care follows the completion of one of the above programs and consists of outpatient therapy appointments during the first year or so of sobriety. Out-of-state patients may choose to stay in sober living in Chandler or transfer to outpatient care closer to home.
