1What is dual diagnosis?
A dual diagnosis is when a person is struggling with both an addiction and a mental health disorder. Nearly half of all people that have an addiction also have a mental illness that requires deliberate, simultaneous treatment to overcome the addiction and get the treatment needed for the mental health issue.
2 Do I have to attend group meetings?
Yes, we ask that everyone come to the group therapy sessions and participate honestly, respectfully, and without judgment. It is extremely beneficial to your treatment and the treatment of others.
3 Why does detox have to be supervised?
During detox, your body will go through some pretty unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. In order to make sure you get through detox as comfortably, as efficiently, and as safely as possible, you must have the proper supervision, guidance, and support from trained and caring professionals.
