Co-occurring Dual Diagnosis Mental Health Center

Clients suffering from mental health pain often self-medicate that emotional pain by abusing drugs and alcohol. When these two conditions are both present they are referred to as dual diagnoses or co-occurring disorders.

Treatment here goes beyond your typical Fort Lauderdale hospital detox with a truly comprehensive treatment approach. Clients with both mental health and addiction illnesses can be better treated in Dual diagnosis treatment centers. Dual-diagnosis centers are staffed with trained teams that know how to treat both illnesses together.

Treatment centers providing mental health and substance abuse services are specialized. They already understand that drug addiction might be a result of an underlying mental health issue. And incorporate this understanding in their co-occurring secondary drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment.

Need immediate help? Please call 24 hours for a live counselor.

We Level Up specialists are well trained to identify these underlying conditions and attempt to correct them. Mental health and substance abuse are complicated issues. Because they often interact with and impact each other. If you have a mental health issue and you leave it untreated, then your drug and alcohol addiction might also get worse.

Primary Mental Health & Secondary Substance Abuse Services

People with both mental health and substance abuse issues take varying routes to complete recovery. Your prescribed mental health and substance abuse treatments should cater to you. With special attention focused on your particular mental health condition and drug addiction. Ensure your treatment plan is set up to address your unique needs by asking for the details.

If you have a behavioral health problem, generally the most ideal approach may be to introduce a combination of medication, counseling, and therapy. Additional supportive treatments like therapy and case management may also be important in promoting your recovery and long-term health by effectively treating your mental health issue and, concurrently, dissipating your secondary drug and alcohol addiction and dependence.

Griffin Leoni
Operations Manager

I joined Level Up as a behavioral health technician, with a purpose to help individuals find a healthy solution to everyday challenges. One of my motivating factors for joining this field, was to give back what was given to me. I too, suffered with similar battles that our clients face daily. I knew when I came on board to LU, we had a similar goal in mind. To help those find a better meaning in life and to live up to their fullest potential. Through hard work, determination, and client care, I was able to step into multiple leadership roles that eventually led me to Operations Manager. In my time with the company, I have seen individuals transform their lives, smile for the first time in years and above all, become the true version of themselves through our program.

First Class Fort-Lauderdale area center

The renovated Tamarac area Fort Lauderdale Rehab mental health center in Florida provides a comprehensive co-occurring dual-diagnosis treatment that treats both the primary mental health illness and any secondary substance abuse illness that clients suffer from.

At We Level Up’s Fort Lauderdale rehab mental health center, we treat more than secondary drug or alcohol addiction but provide primary and stand-alone mental health care as well. Our programs are comprehensive treating the entire client from depression to anxiety to secondary addiction illness.
