Dual diagnosis is the term most often used to describe a patient suffering from two disorders at the same time. Addiction very often has underlying issues such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, etc. Both the addiction and the underlying cause require simultaneous, appropriate care and treatment. A correct diagnosis is therefore vital, if the correct treatments and therapies are to be put in place. Here, at Sovereign Health of California, our highly qualified staff has a wealth of experience in this field. After an initial evaluation and diagnosis, an individual dual diagnosis treatment program is tailored to the specific needs of the client, incorporating clinical therapy, education, group support and holistic therapies such as Equine-assisted therapy, yoga, etc.
