Get the answers you need. Learn how to successfully plan, stage and perform a dual diagnosis intervention.
We develop dual diagnosis intervention strategies, provide tips, discuss solutions, assist with treatment options, offer intervention counseling and comprehensive assistance through all phases of a person’s recovery. The term dual diagnosis is used to describe the combined condition of a person considered to be suffering from a mental illness and a substance abuse problem.
The condition is also called co-occurring disorders (COD). Making a dual diagnosis in substance abusers is difficult as drug abuse itself often induces psychiatric symptoms, thus making it necessary to differentiate between substance induced and pre-existing mental illness.
It can be very difficult to find appropriate treatment opportunities for dual diagnosis. Many substance-abuse centers do not accept people with serious psychiatric conditions, and many psychiatric centers do not have expertise with substance abuse.
However, principles do exist for successful treatment of individuals with coexisting mental and substance-abuse disorders. Treatment of the two disorders should be integrated, not separate, and should be a collaborative decision-making process between the treatment team and the patient.
Recovery needs to be viewed as a marathon, not as a sprint, and methods and outcome goals should be explicit. If someone you care about is telling you no, I won’t go to treatment, I don’t need help or the problem isn’t that bad, you are in the right place. We Can Help!

We realize this is a difficult situation you are in. Calling upon the right intervention specialist can substantially increase the odds that your friend, co-worker or loved one finally accepts help. Fact is, there are only a handful of top interventionists who really know what to do when situations aren’t text book or don’t go according to plan.
That’s what sets them and us apart. Finding the right intervention specialist is the most important first step to ensuring the person you care about receives proper health care.
Families, friends, co workers and employers are encouraged to reach out to us. Trying to manage an addiction and/or mental health related condition without professional assistance can be potentially fatal.
Addiction and mental health crisis situations are complex and often pose challenges when it comes to the person accepting help, being properly diagnosed and following treatment plans.
Aligning yourself to a qualified professional who understands the serious nature of addiction, recovery phases and the mental health related components many sufferers experience is critical. Among the many dangers of not getting the person you care about into a treatment program that best fits their needs or addresses dual diagnosis, bipolar, trauma, etc is relapse.
Active addiction amplifies underlying co-occurring disorders so that sobriety must indeed come first if the inflicted individual is going to have any hope of getting better. The other side is that untreated depression, anxiety, mania and such can trigger relapse.
Performing an intervention is too important to risk. Before approaching the person you care about, consider consulting an experienced intervention specialist today at: 800-980-3927
