Georgetown Behavioral Hospital treats adults who suffer from mental health issues alongside co-occurring drug and/or alcohol use disorder.
The program is designed for individuals living with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Not sure if this includes you? Well, you might need dual diagnosis treatment if you suffer from any of the following mental health issues:
Like with anything else, the most important part of dual diagnosis is the beginning. Care at Georgetown Behavioral Hospital starts with a high quality mental health assessment. During this process, a member of our experienced care staff will meet with the patient to discuss their mental state, history, and other important factors. This information will then be used to assign the patient to the appropriate level of care.
From there, Georgetown Behavioral Hospital provides the highest quality diagnosis, stabilization and treatment for adults with acute mental health issues, as well as detox for patients with co-occurring substance use disorders. This ensures comprehensive treatment of both addiction and the underlying causes.
Our care staff provides treatment with kindness, empathy, dignity, and respect. From the first day of treatment, patients learn about the destructive relationship between substance abuse and mental illness. They feed into each other, and the more someone uses drugs or alcohol, the worse their mental state. The worse their mental state, the more they need drugs or alcohol to cope. With treatment, our goal is to break this cycle.
Across Ohio, countless people are suffering from untreated or under-treated mental health issues. If you are among this group, this is your cue that it’s time to get help.
