When you’re facing mental health and substance abuse issues, you can feel trapped by addiction and its rollercoaster. Recovering from alcohol or drug dependence is a complicated journey that also requires addressing anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and other mental health concerns. Standing at the crossroads of mental health and substance issues—this “dual diagnosis”—you are making the choice to break free from the strong pull that is capturing your psychological, physical and overall wellbeing. 

You can recover from your mental health illness and addiction. At Beachway, we believe in addressing both issues with multi-modal therapies that are customized for the individual. At our retreat setting, you can escape a toxic environment so you can focus on dual diagnosis addiction treatment.

What Is Dual Diagnosis?

When mental health issues are pitted as a root cause of addiction and not treated in a dual diagnosis program, individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder can feel trapped by their mental health issue. They want to recover from an addiction, but their mental health disease becomes a justification—and this mindset can bond a person to addiction. Why would you try to get better if your anxiety is just going to drive you back to substances? (That’s the dangerous thinking this narrow-minded treatment approach can instill.) With this mindset, the addiction recovery process can feel like an empty promise.

At Beachway, we challenge that mindset and know from successful treatment that mental health issues can be treated. Beachway is one of the top dual diagnosis treatment centers with residential programs ranking in the top 1% of the country. We take a progressive approach and combines a range of therapies to accommodate each person’s needs. If you’re struggling with mental health issues and addiction, you need a dual diagnosis rehab program that takes into consideration the impact of both and treats the diseases in concert.

Why Do Substance Abuse and Mental Illness Occur Together?

We know that substance abuse and mental illness are linked to the same root cause. Social, biological, and environmental factors cause a break in healthy brain development. For some, a mental health illness may find them seeking drugs or alcohol to find pleasure. For others, an addiction may trigger a mental health issue like depression, and therefore feed a dependence on substances. The addiction fills a gap. By addressing mental health and then substance abuse at Beachway, you can truly break free from the rollercoaster of psychological and physical ups and downs.

Psychiatrists and Doctors are just beginning to understand the impacts that trauma, abuse, and other stressful incidences have on the development of the brain, according to Medline Plus research.

Alternatively, the abuse of certain substances can also interrupt healthy brain functioning and development and lead to the occurrence of mental health issues. Mental health issues and substance abuse issues often occur together and are best treated together.

Beachway Therapy Center – A Customized Approach

Beachway’s Dual Diagnosis Treatment center provides a holistic approach to treatment that takes into account the unique circumstances, inclinations, and needs of the individual. Multiple aspects of a person’s life lead to dual diagnosis and are impacted by it. Personal histories of Trauma or Grief/Loss may be an underlying cause of a dual diagnosis. By looking at the whole person and their unique needs, staff members can create an individual program of care that is ethical, competent, and effective.
We believe our clients have the right to choose the care that works best for them. Keeping in mind the autonomy and individuality of each person, we provide personalized services tailored to their needs and preferences. Our specialized rehab in Florida program includes detox, therapy, support groups, and aftercare plans. We work extensively with each person to examine their case history. And to create a rehabilitation plan that is thorough and considerate of what will best support their full recovery.
One-to-one counseling, as well as group counseling, is available. One-to-one therapy is an opportunity to work with professionals who are on the cutting edge of the field of dual diagnosis treatment and to receive unconditional support and sound guidance. In group counseling, individuals receive support and understanding from their peers. The group process is an opportunity to recognize the common challenges faced by those that struggle with a dual diagnosis and to give and receive non-judgemental support and reflection.

Is Recovery from Mental Health and Addictions Possible?

There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment program for addiction and mental health. We recognize and appreciate the individuality of what brings each person to Beachway. With Dual Diagnosis, the complexity of recovering from two distinct yet overlapping diseases requires attention from a compassionate, committed therapy team and staff that can meet you where you are. You are not the only person going through this now. When you choose to get help at Beachway, you join alumni who have successfully completed our dual diagnosis addiction treatment. People who are living in recovery and those that are working on getting there.

You can live free of that toxic pull toward substances—free of the roller-coaster that drags you up, down, and headfirst into understandably the most challenging times in life. You can put this behind you and find health, satisfaction in life, and purpose. If this sounds impossible today, you are not the first person to feel that way. We get it. But let’s explore why Beachway’s dual diagnosis addiction treatment makes a life of recovery a reality.

Expert Therapeutic Care for Dual Diagnosis

The Beachway approach is to coach, teach, and guide you toward living a life with meaning and purpose. We focus on real recovery and learning how to live again. This happens through various modalities of addiction and mental health therapy. Every client gets a customized recovery plan because we know that addiction affects everyone differently.

Do you feel isolated and alone? Addiction and mental health issues can leave us in that place, but group therapy sessions can restore a sense of community and provide fellowship. At Beachway, you’re in a place where people understand your struggles. You can walk together toward recovery, guided by an experienced therapist who connects with each individual and with the group a whole.

Recovering from dual diagnoses requires teasing out the complex relationship between the brain and substances, and understanding what’s triggering mental illness and addiction. Heal from traumatic experiences or grief. Recover from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder or PTSD. Address addiction head-on. Our therapists are carefully matched to each individual so they can build a trusting relationship and guide you toward complete recovery.

Beachway addresses the whole person, and that includes helping families heal together. Family therapy helps mend relationships with relatives and begins fostering a support network so you can recover for life.

Beachway cares for the whole person. We offer equine, music, art and psychodrama therapy, along with optional faith-based drug and alcohol programs. We provide recreational outings such as deep-sea fishing, and trips to the beach, movies and other activities to help you re-establish sober ways to get out and enjoy life. Full spa services allow you to indulge in relaxation and restore the body and mind during your stay here.
