Treating Co-Occurring Disorders

At HopeQuest, we understand that underlying mental health issues are often a part of our clients’ stories, as well as the addiction they have come to address in treatment. We are committed to helping our clients address the emotional, spiritual and physiological components of their mental health and well-being through a holistic and comprehensive approach to treatment.

Our licensed counselors and therapists work collaboratively with our professional medical staff in the assessment, treatment and management of co-occurring mental health disorders during the client’s time in the program. Common co-occurring mental health disorders we treat are:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Personality disorders

Comprehensive Treatment and Relapse Prevention

One of the reasons that treating co-occurring disorders is so vital for recovery from addiction is that mental health issues, like anxiety and depression, often fuel addictive behavior as the individual seeks relief from uncomfortable feelings or moods. Individuals who are not treated for diagnosed mental health disorders are therefore much more likely to relapse. HopeQuest’s comprehensive approach to treatment in addressing the client’s addiction and co-occurring disorders gives the client a greater chance for success in maintaining sobriety. Treatment interventions we utilize in addressing co-occurring disorders are:

  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • Psycho-education about addiction and diagnosed mental health disorders
  • Evidenced-based pharmacological treatment and psychological therapies
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing)
  • Recovery-skills training
