drug or alcohol addiction treatment program can help you stop drinking, but what if you have a co-occurring mental health issue? Some programs treat the addiction without addressing the underlying symptoms. At Pure Life Recovery, we use dual diagnosis treatment to treat both issues concurrently.

UNDERSTANDING DUAL DIAGNOSIS

Many people mistakenly think that a drug or alcohol detox program alone will help them get sober. Completing a comprehensive treatment program ensures that no stone is left unturned. Through our quality care continuum, qualified professionals will be able to address any underlying mental health disorders that might have contributed to your substance abuse.

THERAPIES USED DURING DUAL DIAGNOSIS TREATMENT

Therapists at Pure Life Recovery use a variety of resources to address co-occurring disorders, but cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and trauma therapy are vital components.

CBT is a form of psychotherapy distinguishing a direct link between feelings and thoughts. The therapy’s goal is to modify negative behaviors and create positive ones. New positive behaviors enable our patients to experience a more rewarding life.

Trauma therapy examines past negative experiences that have acted as an anchors to living a productive life. Traumatic events such as prolonged sexual or physical abuse may have led to using as a coping mechanism. Our therapists aim to relieve anxiety and promote new coping strategies that don’t involve substance abuse.

EXPERIENTIAL THERAPY ENHANCES YOUR DUAL DIAGNOSIS TREATMENT

At Pure Life Recovery, we believe in a holistic approach to recovery. Our experiential therapies strengthen your recovery by providing physical, emotional and spiritual outlets. Examples of therapies may include:

  • Exercise
  • Yoga
  • Equine Therapy
  • Music
  • Wolf Therapy
  • Art
  • Indoor Skydiving
