(8007) Dual Diagnosis Comorbidity Alcohol Rehab Treatment Centers
When an individual is struggling with alcohol use disorder, it is very often the result of an underlying mental health issue for which they need separate and distinct treatment; this is called a co-occurring disorder and is best treated through a process called dual-diagnosis treatment. Dual-diagnosis alcohol rehab centers address the immediate impact of your alcoholism while also providing a deeper level of care for the mental issues that triggered it. Dual-diagnosis care can be conducted in either an inpatient or outpatient and is administered by experienced, committed, and qualified professionals. Therapy is generally recommended beyond the scope of your immediate treatment program.
What Happens in Dual-Diagnosis Alcohol Rehab?
Dual-diagnosis patients work with a care team of doctors, therapists, and case managers to create personalized treatment plans that address their unique needs. This is meant to provide intuitive care that “meets patients where they live” by identifying and working on the specific origins of their substance abuse, whether it’s acute trauma, family issues, economic insecurity, or anything else.
Some of the main mental health issues covered in dual-diagnosis rehab include, but are not limited to:
- Anxiety Disorder
- Borderline Personality Disorder
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Relationship Issues
- Bipolar Disorder

Why Choose Dual-Diagnosis Alcohol Rehab?
Alcohol addiction rarely occurs on its own. There is usually an underlying mental health issue attached to the behavior that must be addressed for comprehensive recovery. Dual-diagnosis rehab helps you to focus on the causes and triggers of your alcohol abuse through proven therapies while also helping you to develop coping techniques to avoid relapse in high-pressure situations.
Dual-diagnosis rehab is commonly covered by private insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid. While each patient’s experience in dual-diagnosis treatment will be different, some of the main therapies used in the practice include cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, family involvement, and more.
