Our Dual-Diagnosis Approach

Merito at Carlos Place offers a comprehensive and integrated dual-diagnosis program with the sincere intent for each patient to receive treatment that is proper and fitting to each unique individual, not only for alcohol and drug addiction but also for other co-occurring mental health issues. In addition to our world class addiction treatment facilities, we have a team of trained and experienced healthcare professionals that specialize in the following mental health problems:

  • Anxiety Disorders – While feeling anxious is but a normal part of everyday life, having anxiety disorders is an entirely different thing.  You have an anxiety disorder if the feelings of anxiety and the frequency by which they become manifest are becoming too overwhelming that the quality of life is dramatically downgraded.   One example is panic disorder, wherein a person is debilitated by frequent episodes of fear and anxiety for no apparent reason.    Life becomes too unbearable that the sufferer often resorts to mood-altering drugs, both legal and illegally obtained.
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – Feeling stressed and fearful during and after a traumatic experience is quite natural, yet feeling that same fear and stress, even long after the trauma period has passed is not.  If you continue to do so even in the absence of any actual impending danger, you might be suffering from PTSD.   Traumatized soldiers and victims of abuse often turn to drugs and alcohol to somehow help them through this insidious disorder.

“Never give up on someone with a mental illness. When ‘I’ is replaced by ‘We’, Illness become wellness.”
– Shannon L. Alder

  • Mood Disorders – Mood disorders usually coexist with substance abuse and addiction.  Bipolar disorder (BD) is one of them.   It is symptomized by mood instability, wherein mania (high mood) and depression (low mood) take turns.   Depression is another mood disorder that can be diagnosed after a two-week long display of symptoms.
  • Schizophrenia – This mental disorder chronically and severely affects a person’s thought, emotion and behavior patterns.  Patients appear to have a diminished connection with reality and their lack of relatively normal enthusiasm for or response to daily life activities can be very debilitating on a personal and social level.   Add to that a drug or alcohol problem and life becomes more chaotic.

Our Comprehensive Treatment Program

We adapt the very efficient 12-step program for rehabilitation, but adding to it our own take that recovery is more attainable when a person’s overall health and well-being is taken into consideration. Addressing not only the physical aspect but also the mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of each patient, we also make sure to focus on a stabilization phase before moving on to the action phase.

Here’s what you can expect from our comprehensive program.

  • A regular exercise routine and nutritional planning for the body. Our nutrition and diet experts can assist you in planning healthier and more nourishing meals.
  • Individual and group therapy sessions for the mind.
  • Yoga, meditation and spiritual (Christian faith-based) practice for the soul.
