We Get to Know the Underlying Mental Health Conditions to Develop a Personalized Treatment Plan
As part of our exclusive inpatient residential program, The Dunes East Hampton functions as a dual diagnosis treatment facility. It is not uncommon for those struggling with an addiction to also present a separate mental condition. The condition may be what led to substance dependency, but sometimes the substance abuse amplified the signs of the co-occurring mental disorder. Therefore, The Dunes puts all its resources into treating both the addiction and the mental condition of dual diagnosis residents. Since we treat co-occurring disorders and boast a high-end residential program that is exclusive to the Northeastern U.S., The Dunes East Hampton has emerged as a leader among other dual diagnosis treatment centers in the region.
What is Dual Diagnosis?
Dual diagnosis is when a person is found to have two medical conditions. In our case, dual diagnosis is when a person who is addicted to a substance is also found to have an underlying mental condition. The separate condition is also referred to as a co-occurring disorder. In our quest to become one of the top New York dual diagnosis rehabs, we perform a full psychological evaluation on all patients coming into our inpatient residential program to see if there is an accompanying mental disorder along with their substance addiction problem.
Roughly 50 percent of people in the U.S. who have an addiction problem also have a mental disorder. The number of co-occurring disorders among addiction patients is vast, but at The Dunes East Hampton, we focus on the following conditions:
- Anxiety disorders
- Bi-polar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Other mental illnesses that accompany the substance dependency
Some individuals who did not show signs of a mental illness before abusing drugs or alcohol can later show symptoms of a mental disorder. At The Dunes East Hampton, whether the patient has shown signs of a mental illness before or after abusing substances, we tackle dual diagnosis problems using a variety of holistic methods, such as meditation, acupuncture and even nutritional recommendations.

How Our Program Stands out from Other Dual Diagnosis Treatment Models
After undergoing a psychological evaluation to see if a mental disorder is present along with the addiction issues, residents found to have a co-occurring disorder will undergo dual diagnosis rehabilitation. At The Dunes East Hampton, that means the resident will begin a customized, highly structured dual diagnosis treatment plan that addresses both conditions. Residents will execute their recovery plan in a luxurious, comfortable and private environment and they will also become a part of the Southeastern New York community during their time with us.
Each resident’s dual diagnosis drug rehab will consist of holistic treatments that address their mind, body and spirit. We know that treating the addiction without addressing the co-occurring disorder is setting the person up for failure, such as an unsuccessful recovery or relapses down the road. Our dual diagnosis residential treatment program addresses the whole person and helps each client take those crucial first steps toward long-term sobriety.
Intensive Outpatient Dual Diagnosis Rehabilitation
Not only do we boast an exemplary dual diagnosis residential treatment program, but we also offer the same services to those who live or are staying in the area and are coming to The Dunes East Hampton for intensive outpatient treatment. Our staff will do a preliminary evaluation on any client seeking intensive outpatient services, and we will develop a plan to treat any co-occurring disorders discovered. That way, patients struggling with an addiction and an underlying disorder can have all their needs met at our dual diagnosis treatment facility. Even if not participating in our inpatient residential program, all clients undergoing dual diagnosis drug rehab at The Dunes will be well-prepared for a long-lasting recovery.
