Why Choose a Dual Diagnosis Mental Health Treatment Center?

At its core, dual diagnosis refers to the co-existence of a mental health disorder alongside a substance use disorder. This condition is extremely common. Many individuals battling addiction are also facing underlying and unresolved mental health challenges.

Treating Co-Occurring Disorders For Long-Term Recovery

Addressing only one facet of this intertwined relationship can lead to an incomplete recovery process. By acknowledging and treating both mental health disorders and addiction disorders, a holistic pathway to healing emerges. This comprehensive approach ensures that underlying triggers and co-existing issues are identified and managed, paving a clear path for a more resilient long-term recovery journey.

Improving Mental Health & Addiction Treatment Outcomes

Opting for Cornerstone’s dual diagnosis treatment offers several advantages. Our experienced team is specially trained in identifying and treating co-occurring disorders, ensuring every individual receives personalized care. With safe and comfortable treatment facilities and a nurturing environment, we provide unparalleled treatment and support to all our clients. We pride ourselves in helping clients navigate the complexities of dual diagnosis while laying the groundwork for long-lasting health and sobriety.

Mental Health Disorders We Treat

Here are some common co-occurring mental health disorders that we commonly provide treatment for:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Depression
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

The Interconnection of Mental Health and Substance Abuse

It’s important to note that mental health disorders and substance abuse can often be deeply interconnected. Individuals may turn to drugs or alcohol as a means to self-medicate or cope with their mental health symptoms. Substance abuse can also exacerbate or even trigger the onset of certain mental health conditions. Our dual diagnosis treatment approach ensures both the substance abuse and the mental health disorder are thoroughly examined. Both problems need to be addressed to provide holistic care for optimal recovery.

If you are experiencing increased drug tolerance, obsession with drugs, deception, financial problems, cravings, self-medicating behaviors, awareness of negative impacts, or withdrawal symptoms, it is time to seek help. You can recover from drug or alcohol addiction and we will help to support you. 

Beginning Your Recovery Program

Acceptance is the first step. Be open and honest about your drug use, avoid negative influences, and be prepared to make significant changes in your life. Cornerstone of Southern California is here to support you every step of the way. Our community is here to support your recovery.

A mental health treatment center typically focuses on diagnosing and treating mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. On the other hand, a behavioral health treatment center may address a broader spectrum of issues, including mental health disorders as well as behavioral problems that could involve lifestyle choices, stress, or habits that negatively impact physical and mental well-being. Cornerstone of Southern California encompasses both aspects, offering services for a wide range of mental health disorders and behaviors. We provide comprehensive care for individuals seeking help for all types of conditions.
