Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
Our intensive outpatient treatment program and clinical model is designed to effectively treat co-occurring disorders consisting of substance use and a mental health disorder.
It is our professional opinion and experience that both issues needed to be treated simultaneously to ensure a robust and lasting recovery. Your mental health and substance use interact and are interrelated, meaning when one is destabilized it destabilizes the other, often leading to a relapse in either or both your substance use and mental health symptomology.
All new clients who are screened or have been assessed to have a mental health issue will be referred for a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation by a trusted community practitioner that collaborates with our treatment program. This evaluation will give us a baseline as to the nature and severity of the mental health issue, and allow us to develop a treatment plan to ensure your mental health issues are adequately addressed during your treatment experience. It is known that concurrent treatment of mental health and substance use issues promotes better outcomes among those with a substance use disorder.
If already receiving effective mental health treatment by a practitioner in the community, the client may continue with that practitioner while participating in our IOP program with Cypress West coordinating treatment modalities with them, thus resulting in a better outcome for the client than were a coordinated approach not undertaken.
Like the rest of our treatment team, the mental health and psychiatric practitioners we align with in the community bring extensive experience in the treatment of co-occurring disorders, and may provide ongoing medication management services throughout the client’s treatment experience if medications are indicated.
Individual and group therapies will be utilized to effectively treat clients’ mental health issues and concerns. Our therapists employ effective evidenced based practices including cognitive behavioral therapy to treat anxiety and depression, as well as other mental health concerns.
