Dual Diagnosis at Zak's House

At Zak’s House, we recognize that addiction treatment is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Our Dual Diagnosis program delves deep into the intricate relationship between addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders, providing comprehensive care tailored to each individual’s unique needs. Contact us today at 619-404-0052 to learn more about how our Dual Diagnosis program can help you reclaim your life.

What is Dual Diagnosis?

Dual Diagnosis, also known as co-occurring disorders, refers to the simultaneous presence of a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder. It’s crucial to understand that these conditions often interact and exacerbate each other, making recovery more challenging without targeted intervention.

The Complexity of Co-Occurring Disorders:

  • Prevalence: Co-occurring disorders are more common than often realized, with research indicating that a significant portion of individuals seeking addiction treatment also struggle with mental health issues.
  • Interconnectedness: Addiction and mental health disorders frequently influence and reinforce each other, leading to a cycle of substance abuse and worsening mental health symptoms.
  • Unique Challenges: Dual Diagnosis presents unique challenges in treatment, as addressing one condition without considering the other can impede progress and increase the risk of relapse.

Our Approach to Evidence-Based Practices for Holistic Healing

At Zak’s House, our Dual Diagnosis program adopts a holistic approach that integrates evidence-based practices to address the complex needs of individuals facing co-occurring disorders.

  • Comprehensive Assessment: Our experienced clinicians conduct thorough assessments to identify both addiction and mental health issues, ensuring a tailored treatment plan that addresses all aspects of the individual’s well-being.
  • Integrated Therapy: We offer a diverse range of therapeutic modalities, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), trauma-informed care, and holistic approaches such as mindfulness and art therapy. These modalities work synergistically to address the underlying factors contributing to both addiction and mental health disorders.
  • Medication Management: In cases where medication is deemed appropriate, our medical professionals provide careful oversight and management to address psychiatric symptoms and support the individual’s journey to recovery.
  • Supportive Environment: At Zaks House, we cultivate a supportive and nurturing environment where individuals feel safe to explore their emotions, confront past traumas, and develop healthier coping mechanisms under the guidance of our compassionate staff.
  • Aftercare Planning: Our commitment to long-term recovery extends beyond the duration of treatment. We work closely with clients to develop comprehensive aftercare plans that include ongoing support, relapse prevention strategies, and connections to community resources to facilitate a smooth transition into independent living.
  • Addressing Trauma and PTSD: Healing the Wounds Beneath Addiction Trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), often underlies addiction and complicates the recovery process. Many individuals turn to substances as a means of self-medication to cope with unresolved trauma and painful memories.
  • Specialized Trauma-Informed Care: Our Dual Diagnosis program at Zaks House places a strong emphasis on trauma-informed care, recognizing the profound impact of past traumas on an individual’s mental health and addiction recovery journey.
  • Evidence-Based Trauma Therapies: We offer evidence-based trauma therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), prolonged exposure therapy, and narrative therapy to help individuals process and heal from traumatic experiences in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Holistic Healing: In addition to traditional therapies, we incorporate holistic approaches such as yoga, meditation, and equine therapy to promote healing on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels, empowering individuals to reclaim control over their lives and find inner peace.
