The Dual Diagnosis Difference
Most cases of addiction stem from untreated, underlying issues that may not be easily identifiable on the surface. As a result, focusing only on treating substance addiction without treating the root cause is like putting a Band-Aid on a wound that requires stitches – it is a temporary solution that will likely require attention again in the future.
At Outpatient Los Angeles, we employ a dual diagnosis treatment philosophy that simultaneously treats co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders to fight addiction above and beneath the surface. Our therapists work one-on-one with all of our clients and offer life-changing insights on a regular basis. It is critical to get to the root of addiction to treat it properly, so attending an outpatient treatment program with a dual diagnosis treatment philosophy is vital for maintaining long term sobriety.
