Our Dual Diagnosis Program for Florida
It is commonly said that addiction is a progressive and complex disease. One of the main reasons why addiction can be difficult to understand and treat is the fact that the use of substances often is a symptom of a deeper mental health issue. When a person has a substance abuse issue and has a Dual Diagnosis mental health disorder, that person is said to have a dual diagnosis (AKA co-occurring). In order for an addict to have the best chance of long-term recovery, they must find drug treatment that offers the counseling, therapy and programming that can adequately address their drug addiction as well as their underlying mental health illness.
If you are struggling with addiction and are unsure whether or not an underlying mental health condition is present, New River Wellness Center provides dual diagnosis treatment services that can help identify and explore the appropriate course of treatment so you can form a new life filled with hope and healing. Our facility is one of the premier gender-responsive drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in South Florida and we offer comprehensive care and treatment that is evidence-based, highly effective and delivered by our experienced and compassionate staff. Our mission is to provide you drug treatment services that promote total recovery in mind, body and spirit.

Individualized Dual- Diagnosis Treatment Plans
If you are battling a dual diagnosis, you can feel overwhelmed and may feel guilt and shame regarding your current situation. There may be those times where you feel that you may never overcome your addiction. When you enter our dual diagnosis treatment facility, our staff will help navigate you through the difficult, and sometimes confusing, journey of recovery. We realize that each individual has their own specific goals in regards to the recovery and in order for our clients to reach those goals our staff creates individualized treatment plans that are tailored specifically for each person.
Our team of onsite psychiatrists will evaluate your history, behaviors and conduct a thorough series of comprehensive mental health assessments to see if a Dual Diagnosis mental health disorder is present. These assessments may include any cognitive challenges you are facing, along with any related symptoms such as insomnia, mood swings, irritability and impulsive behaviors. Our dual diagnosis program includes treatments for all types of disorders commonly seen in the addictive experience.
The most common Dual Diagnosis mental health disorders that are seen with substance abuse include depression, anxiety, traumatic stress disorders and panic disorders. Along with those mental health disorders, our specifically designed dual diagnosis program also helps those who suffer from other mental health illnesses such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD and mood disorders among others. Additionally, our staff will closely monitor your behaviors, reactions to medications, as well as your emotional and mental conditions throughout the course of treatment.
What Therapies Are Utilized in Our Dual Diagnosis Program?
In order to meet the unique and special needs of each client, we utilize various therapies that will suit any client regardless of their history. While every situation will be different depending upon the diagnosis for each patient, the goal of long term recovery from addiction and their Dual Diagnosis mental health disorder is the common thread that links all patients who undergo dual diagnosis treatment at New River Wellness Center. The therapy options that we offer include the following:
- Individual counseling
- Group therapy
- 12 Step therapy
- Behavioral Modification
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Motivational Enhancement Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
These therapies help address the areas of your life that can trigger the urges to use drugs and alcohol in your daily life. Ultimately, therapy will give you the healthy coping skills that you need to sustain your recovery. Once you complete formal treatment and resume your day-to-day routines, these treatment therapies can be modified in order to account for any changes in your situations while you are undergoing treatment. Along with our intervention, treatment and aftercare programs, our dual diagnosis treatment services are part of the full continuum of care that New River Wellness Center is renowned for throughout the state of Florida as well as nationwide.
