At New Method Wellness we offer a top notch dual diagnosis treatment program for clients with co-occuring disorders.
Dual diagnosis is defined by the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) as: "... the term used when a person has a mood disorder such as depression or bipolar disorder and a problem with alcohol or drugs. A person who has a dual diagnosis has two separate illnesses, and each illness needs its own treatment plan."
Substance abuse is often associated with behavioral and mood disorders, whether diagnosed or undiagnosed. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), more than 50% of those surveyed with a mental illness abuse alcohol or drugs as a coping mechanism.

At New Method Wellness, we have both substance abuse professionals and medical doctors on our staff. We believe that a holistic approach to substance abuse treatment is necessary for a holistic recovery.
Our treatment programs are custom fit to each client in order to provide the proper treatment for success. All clients prior to receiving any treatment, are screened by our staff psychiatrist and medical doctors to ensure the proper diagnosis. During this process, each client is asked to provide a detailed medical and behavioral health history and to voice any concerns regarding their substance abuse treatment.
