At Highland Ridge Hospital, we treat each person who comes to us using our four guiding principles: care, concern, compassion, and competence as we strive to be a safe haven of support for all we meet. Many people who come to us struggling with mental health disorders or chemical dependency are struggling with more than their presenting symptoms. We offer dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorder treatment for those struggling with a combination of two or more mental health or substance abuse disorders to help each person we treat achieve their maximum level of functioning.
When clients first come to us, they will undergo a variety of evaluations to help us determine if they are struggling with more than one type of mental illness. If it is learned throughout these evaluations that a client has one or more co-occurring disorders in addition to the presenting disorder, we will use this information to create a treatment plan. The treatment plan will be created specifically for each client and will include treatment of all disorders in a holistic manner. Treatment options for co-occurring disorders may include detox, medication, and a wide array of therapeutic techniques designed to heal the whole person – mind, body, and soul.
