Co-Occurring Disorders

Healing the Whole Person

The challenges of substance use disorder go deep into the psyche, often reflecting complex and disturbing root causes. These underlying catalysts to addiction must be treated simultaneously so that recovery of the whole person is achieved.

At The Pointe Malibu Recovery Center, we assess your physical and mental state in a thorough, nuanced way that often reveals what are called co-occurring disorders or dual diagnoses. This enables us to design a comprehensive treatment plan that effectively addresses both your substance use and mental condition. Treating one without treating the other can slow down and even negate recovery, leaving you confused and disillusioned. But through our skilled professional staff and proven, evidence-based treatments, we can help you to heal at every level and show you healthier ways to deal with underlying issues.

Knowledge with Understanding

Co-occurring disorder, defined as a psychological or behavioral condition co-existing with substance use disorder, can include many different afflictions. Common stressors
include:

  • Anxiety
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Depression
  • PTSD
  • Thought Disorders
  • Trauma-Attachment Disorders

Any of these deep-rooted disorders can trigger substance abuse and hinder your ability to maintain sobriety. But our personal, individualized treatment, administered by knowledgeable, licensed professionals, helps you to confront these related issues in a way that is rejuvenating and long lasting.

As with most all of our substance use treatment programs at The Pointe Malibu, we first guide you through detox to rid your body of the alcohol or drugs that have poisoned your system. Then, from the safe and secure environment of our world-class beachfront facility, you meet one-on-one with your own designated licensed therapists who get to know you in depth. Through these sessions, you obtain a better grasp of your challenges, along with clear guidance on how to overcome them and achieve full, long-term recovery. With these life-changing tools in hand, you will no longer feel the need to self-medicate for these underlying disorders.
