Malibu Treatment Center for Teen Dual Diagnosis Disorders

At Visions Treatment Centers, we focus on addressing cases holistically. We find the most effective way to treat a dual diagnosis is through a comprehensive approach that combines multiple modalities and aims to address both the mental disorder and the coexisting issue of substance use and potential addiction. We do this through medication, intensive therapy, appropriate adjunct programs, and detox. We believe residential treatment and care can be key to treating a dual diagnosis, as an intensive hands-on approach can help teens learn to pivot and develop useful habits to cope with their condition, battle their cravings, develop a vital support network, and lead a more fulfilling life.

At Visions Treatment Centers, the average length of stay is 45 to 90 days. During this time at our Malibu treatment center, teens will be working with our doctors, therapists, and specialists to address emotional outbursts and behavioral issues, talk at length about personal anxieties, and develop the proper toolkit needed to continue dealing with the long-term effects of mental illness and substance use. We help teens ensure their dual diagnosis does not impede them in their journey through life.
