mental health AND ADDICTION

Comprehensive Care for Complex Needs

Dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorders, refers to the presence of both a mental health condition and a substance use disorder. At NEM Recovery Centers, we recognize the intricate link between these two areas and provide a nuanced approach to treatment that addresses the full spectrum of our clients’ needs.

Nem's Integrative Model

Harmonizing Mental Health and Addiction Recovery

Mental health and substance abuse are often deeply intertwined, and our treatment model reflects this interconnection. We believe that to foster true healing, one must treat both the mind and the substance use disorder in tandem. Our integrated treatment model is designed to provide a holistic healing experience.

Individuals suffering from alcoholism may initially drink in a social setting, but their consumption increases over time. Eventually, they may begin to drink alcohol at inappropriate times throughout the day or in dangerous situations, such as while operating a motor vehicle. Risk-taking behavior increases as alcohol becomes a higher priority in one’s life.


Targeted Therapies for Dual Diagnosis:

Our team of professionals is adept at navigating the complexities of dual diagnosis, employing targeted therapies that are specifically chosen for their efficacy in treating co-occurring disorders. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): To help reframe negative thinking patterns and develop healthier coping mechanisms.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): For emotional regulation and to improve relationship skills.
  • Pharmacotherapy: Carefully managed medication plans to stabilize mood and assist with addiction recovery.
  • Psychoeducation: Teaching clients about their conditions and how to manage symptoms effectively.
  • Family Therapy: Involving loved ones to heal relationships and build a supportive network.
  • Relapse Prevention Education: Strategies to recognize triggers and prevent relapse in both mental health and substance use.
  • Specialized Wellness Activities
