Florida Center for Recovery (FCR) is a rehab center that treats addiction and related mental health conditions through our inpatient programs. Treating both conditions at the same time helps safeguard the individual’s recovery which if ignored, the underlying mental health disorder can be the cause of future relapses.
According to 2014 national survey individuals who suffer from any form of mental health disorders are at a higher risk of developing a drug or alcohol addiction. The numbers show that 7.9 million people in the United States have co-occurring mental health disorders in conjunction with their substance abuse issues.
FCR’s inpatient dual diagnosis addiction treatment program in Saint Lucie County, Florida, offers treatment for some of the most common mental health issues including:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Personality Disorders
- Bipolar Disorders
- Anxiety Disorders
If you or your loved one is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, you are recommended to get a comprehensive medical and clinical assessment that will help determine the best course of treatment and the type of program that addresses your particular situation.
Dual diagnosis treatment has been proven to help individuals overcome their addictions to drugs and/or alcohol. This diagnosis provides afflicted individuals the treatment to overcome and to learn to manage their mental health condition. Our integrated treatment plans recognize that the answer to all substance abuse cases is not necessarily the traditional mental health counseling, but different approaches need to be reconciled for effective treatment in cases of co-occurring disorders. For example, it is not enough to teach only relationship skills to a person with bipolar disorder without teaching the techniques to avoid the relationships that are intertwined with their substance abuse.
FCR’s dual diagnosis/co-occurring disorder treatment services include types of care that go beyond standard therapy. For instance, clients whose recovery is compromised by trauma receive specialized trauma therapy through Rapid Resolution Therapy with one of the nations’ best trauma therapist, Dr. Jon Connelly. In addition, we offer intensive family counseling and assertive outreach for clients with ongoing complex mental health needs.
