Co-Occurring Disorders / Dual Diagnosis
The term dual diagnosis is used to refer to people with both a substance abuse problem and a mental health disorder. Common example diagnoses include depression and alcohol abuse, psychosis and hallucinogenic use, or anxiety and opiate abuse. The possible dual diagnosis range is very broad and includes the full spectrum of mental health issues and abuse of substances.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Treatment strategies are tailored for each patient’s individual needs, and can include counseling, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), twelve-step group meetings, and cutting-edge treatment options like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EDMR) and biofeedback therapy. Patients are also encouraged to take advantage of Soul Surgery’s gym, private chef, and fun athletic activities to nurture the physical body along with the mind. Using partial hospitalization programs or intensive outpatient programs, Soul Surgery provides a holistic and healing environment dedicated to treating dual diagnosis patients using proven, evidence-based methods.
