DUAL-DIAGNOSIS TREATMENT FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROBLEMS

If someone you know has an alcohol or drug abuse problem, it can seem like a huge issue in and of itself. Yet many individuals who have substance abuse problems also have underlying mental health issues. In fact, the presence of a dual-diagnosed problem is more the rule than the exception.

TREATMENT FOR DUAL-DIAGNOSIS & CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS

Edgewater is a recognized leader among behavioral health care providers in offering substance abuse treatment, as well as treatment for individuals that are dually diagnosed.

With years of treatment experience, our professional staff provides you with the individualized care needed to treat dual-diagnosed problems to ensure lasting recovery. Our treatment plans are designed to address an individual’s substance abuse and mental health problems at the same time, in the same program, by the same well-trained treatment team.

THE PROBLEM

It’s very common for people addicted to drugs, alcohol, and gambling to believe that they don’t have a problem.

THE FAMILY

The family will often have concerns about a potential problem, but the addicted person is very skilled at convincing them that there is nothing to be concerned about.

IT WON’T GO AWAY

Without help, it’s likely that the addiction will escalate, affecting their life and the lives of others close to them.

THE ANSWER

The experienced, professional staff at Edgewater and a full continuum of addictions services, helping people break free from their substance dependence and regain control of their lives.

WHEN THE TIME COMES

A person suffering from an addiction will usually reach a point when they realize that their life is spinning out of control. Sometimes they will come to this realization on their own. Other times, the people affected by their addiction will reach out. Regardless of how it happens, it is a pivotal time in their lives. When the time comes for you or someone you love to seek help, let Edgewater be your choice to help recovery begin.

EXPERIENCED, CARING PROFESSIONALS

Edgewater is staffed by an experienced team of highly qualified, licensed professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, therapists, and case managers.
