Co-Occurring Treatment Program

There’s a version of yourself that you’ve always wanted to be, and we’re here to help.

Many of those who come to us for treatment have struggled with addiction for years, often not understanding why it’s so difficult to break out of the cycle of substance abuse. While both physical and psychological dependence play a role, mental health concerns like anxiety and depression can also be major factors in an individual’s addiction.

Co-occurring disorders is the term used to describe when an individual is struggling both with a mental health condition and a substance use disorder. This can complicate recovery. Self-medicating with drugs or alcohol can seem to improve psychological symptoms in the short term, but it’s not a long-term solution—and it can even make the underlying mental health problems worse. However, our co-occurring competent treatment program can help. This approach doesn’t separate mental health and substance use concerns but instead takes a holistic approach to treat both issues at the same time.

Gemini Recovery is here to support healing. Whether you’re reaching out for yourself or a loved one, our team can help you find the help you need, including co-occurring competent treatment in our Pennsylvania center. Call 888.341.2524 today to learn more about our addiction therapy programs.

What Are Co-Occurring Disorders?

Co-occurring disorders typically occur when an individual is suffering from a mental health condition, such as anxiety or depression, and a substance use disorder at the same time. Many people who have co-occurring diagnoses use drugs or alcohol to self-medicate, but this can have serious and long-term consequences.

Signs of co-occurring disorders include:

  • Feeling overwhelmed or anxious when trying to quit using drugs or alcohol
  • Difficulty managing thoughts and emotions without drugs or alcohol
  • Changes in sleep or eating habits
  • Difficulty focusing or concentrating
  • Increased irritability
  • Feelings of hopelessness and sadness

Left untreated, co-occurring disorders can lead to further physical or mental health concerns. That’s why co-occurring competent treatment is so important. Our therapists address both mental health and substance use disorders at the same time and help our clients build healthy coping skills to support lasting recovery.

What to Expect in Co-Occurring Competent Treatment

We want everyone who walks through our doors to feel comfortable and supported. There’s no judgment here—just caring, experienced professionals who are ready to help you take steps toward lasting recovery.

In co-occurring competent treatment, we focus on helping clients identify the mental health symptoms they’re experiencing and how they can trigger substance use. We help them learn how to manage these emotions and behaviors in healthy ways, such as through mindfulness exercises or relaxation techniques. Relapse prevention is a key part of co-occurring competent treatment, as we work with our clients to create a personalized relapse prevention plan.

Every client in our care participates in both individual and group therapy sessions. Group therapy offers an opportunity to receive support and encouragement from peers who are also in recovery, and the perspective gained from hearing different stories can offer valuable insight.
