Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

I’ve been in this program since the end of January
I’m thinking about leaving tomorrow because I can’t deal with these people any longer
I’m on house restriction due to a big ordeal that I had started
I want to let staff know that I’m walking out tomorrow but afraid they’re going to try and stop me
I think it’s a terrible program,cause the caseworkers there brainwash the client sleep
I know someone close there and when they were at a 30 day program before that,they were fine! A couple weeks there and they’re acting as they have done before when they were drinking and drugging!
Attended the inpatient treatment for co-occurring disorder. A fancy phrase for drug addiction and past trauma. I had a trauma from the past that reared its ugly head after my dad passed away. I was also was dealing with late onset of heroin addiction. Tina Klem was the perfect and obvious choice for me. I came into Tina Klem clean from heroin for a year. Unfortunately I was still getting high on methadone on a daily basis. I so desperately wanted off of methadone. I was watching my peers misuse methadone and felt deep sorrow for them. So getting down to the brass tax of this post is that I was not supported by the majority of staff, all the way up to the director. I plead to R.N.P. please please listen to the brave women in your facility. I have successfully kicked methadone the hard way.
