People battling multiple conditions simultaneously, may often face challenges during their treatment and recovery. This is because when a patient approaches a medical practitioner with multiple conditions, they might miss or fail to recognize one of the conditions or the fact that one condition might have led to the other. This failure at identifying all the current disorders leads to inadequate treatment, which might result in the worsening of the patient’s physical and mental condition, either exacerbating the existing conditions, or increasing their susceptibility of a relapse.
At Invictus Health Group, we have partnered with state-of-the-art treatment centers whom understand that the primary diagnosis of a patient might conceal other conditions or underlying problems that keep the patient from recovering completely. That is why, any patient seeking admission to our dual-diagnosis program has to first undergo a rigorous physical and mental assessment so that their disorders and triggers can be understood individually and in relation to each other and an appropriate blend of treatment modalities is provided.
Dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorder refers to the presence of two or more conditions in an individual. Of these two conditions, one is a mental disorder and the other a substance use disorder (SUD). This distinctive type of diagnosis can include any combination of mental illnesses and addictions. Some example combinations include schizophrenia and alcoholism; depression, anxiety and opioid addiction; or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), opioid and heroin addiction.
Identifying a co-occurring disorder is difficult as usually one condition obscures the existence of the other. However, an individual might be suffering from dual-diagnosis if they conform to any of the examples below:
If any of these situations sound true for you or a loved one, then you might be suffering from a co-occurring disorder. At Invictus Health Group, care is taken to assess all patients thoroughly so that no condition remains hidden or untreated. Call our 24/7 dual-diagnosis treatment helpline 866-548-0190 for more information about this program.
Invictus Health Group works with certified dual-diagnosis treatment centers located at multiple locations across Southern California. Their competent medical staff at the behavioral health centers offer research-backed treatment modalities for patients suffering from various mental illnesses and SUD. We pride ourselves in partnering with organizations that provide customized treatment plans that not only work towards treating the person as a whole but also significantly improving their quality of life. Invictus Health Group and our partners achieve this by treating all our patients’ disorders simultaneously thereby increasing their chances of complete and long-lasting recovery.
What sets us apart from other dual-diagnosis programs is our expertise in focusing and partnering with treatment centers that treat mental health disorders, even when the main diagnosis is an SUD. This is important, as most dual-diagnosis rehab centers treat the SUD without realizing that there is an underlying mental illness that was either triggered by substance use or was a consequence of that. Invictus Health Group aims to work with facilities to treat the individual as a whole reducing the chances of a relapse.
The holistic approach to treat patients of dual-diagnosis also incorporates the role of loved ones and family members in the treatment program. We work hard to provide each patient with the ideal health outcome to break the cycle of addiction and affliction forever.
