Addiction & Mental Health: What is Dual Diagnosis?
True freedom from addiction is only possible when you address the mental health issues and underlying trauma that drive it. At Sunflower, we treat addiction as well as any associated mental health issues, known as co-occurring disorders. This is called a "dual diagnosis" approach, and applies to a variety of mental and behavioral health problems, including:
Addiction & Trauma
Addiction often arises from an attempt to self-medicate deep emotional wounds. Even if you stop unless you heal them. At Sunflower, our Masters-level clinicians create a customized treatment plan for each client to address both the addiction and the underlying trauma that may be fueling it. We'll help you find happiness again, without substances.
