Beach House Center for Recovery is among Florida’s leading dual-diagnosis treatment centers, offering comprehensive therapeutic interventions for a broad spectrum of mental health disorders. With a nationally recognized team of dedicated mental health clinicians, addiction specialists, and psychiatric providers, Beach House is committed to helping every patient end the cycle of addiction. 

Addiction and mental health disorders frequently overlap. An individual with both a mental illness and an addiction disorder is said to have a dual diagnosis — an issue that can complicate the recovery process. 

Mental health disorders and addiction compound each other. Continued substance misuse worsens symptoms of mental health disorders, causing self-medicating behaviors. This cyclical phenomenon accelerates the physical and emotional damage of addiction. In the absence of targeted, comprehensive mental health care, the prospects for recovery aren’t promising.

Beach House Center for Recovery provides individual, intensive psychiatric services combined with group therapies. Our team is committed to offering comprehensive, patient-focused, and personalized dual-diagnosis treatment programs that address the underlying causes of self-medicating behaviors. We provide in-depth clinical expertise and an effective therapeutic alliance that empowers patients with the knowledge and support necessary to participate fully and effectively in their recovery process.

What is Dual-Diagnosis Treatment?

Effective dual-diagnosis treatment strategies depend upon the nature of the co-occurring condition. The most common co-occurring mental health disorders include the following conditions:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Mood disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder

Struggling with an unmanaged mental health condition can lead to self-medicating behaviors and addiction. However, some mental health disorders — notably depression and anxiety — can be drug or alcohol-induced. 

The causal relationship between addiction and mental illness cannot be definitively identified in most cases. However, people with substance use disorders are more likely to have an underlying mental health condition than the general population. People with mental health conditions are statistically more likely to struggle with addiction

Substance use disorders and mental health conditions can both be exacerbated by the following factors:

  • Physiological responses. Drug-induced psychosis is associated with certain mood-altering substances, including methamphetamine, cocaine, and alcohol. 
  • Hereditary factors. Some people might be genetically predisposed to be at greater risk for depression and substance use disorder. 
  • External factors. People who live in unsafe circumstances or struggle financially are likelier to engage in addictive behaviors. Substance misuse can result from trauma, fear, or anxiety.

At Beach House, our team of addiction specialists and psychiatric providers offers in-depth experience in addressing a wide range of psychological disorders. Dual-diagnosis treatment is integrated into every facet of care.

Our individualized treatment approach involves the following:

  • A comprehensive physical and psychiatric evaluation
  • A customized treatment plan for each patient leveraging a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic interventions
  • Support from an experienced and supportive multidisciplinary team
  • An effective therapeutic alliance that empowers patients with the tools they need to participate fully in their treatment
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT), where appropriate
  • 7:1 client-therapist ratio, ensuring one-on-one engagement  
  • A modern, pristine campus-based facility surrounded by a nature preserve and only one mile from the coast
  • Sunrise meditations and a variety of amenities intended for comfort and holistic healing
  • Onsite 12-step recovery groups
  • 24/7 medical monitoring for medically vulnerable patients 

Medications for mood disorders might be used to manage mental health conditions. When medication-assisted treatment is employed, inpatient residential treatment is the most effective option. To achieve sobriety, continuous support and medical supervision are essential.
