When treating an addiction with a co-occurring mental health disorder, a full-spectrum of clinically trained professionals is needed in order to help patients overcome their struggle and learn the tools to live a healthy life. Since co-occurring disorders, called dual diagnosis, refer to both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, members of the team must be knowledgeable about both realms of mental health and substance abuse. Each Sovereign Health location offers a full team of clinically trained members who work together with each individual to deliver the proper care.
Whether it is a dietitian who takes an active role to educate patients with an eating disorder or a group therapist who leads evening outpatient therapy sessions, each individual plays a pivotal role in treating the co-occurring disorders at Sovereign Health. Below is a list of the members of a treatment team that are present at each facility.
Extensive treatment teams at each one of these locations aim to provide the best evidenced-based care for every diagnosis – and every dual diagnosis. The following is a list of treatment advocates who make up the treatment team at each one of Sovereign Health’s facilities:
- Program Director
