Dual Diagnosis Residential Treatment

TEEN DUAL DIAGNOSIS TREATMENT

Dual diagnosis residential treatment is often the last resort for parents of dual diagnosis teens, so it is important that you chose the right one. Residential treatment should be a safe place for teens to adjust to a new way of life without the use of drugs and alcohol, receive a proper diagnosis and medication management, continue with schoolwork to avoid falling behind, and explore group and individual therapy to treat all areas of a teen’s life.
Visions Adolescent Treatment Centers address all of these requirements and more, ensuring that teens experience exemplary care in a comfortable, homelike environment. At Visions, I went to group and individual therapy, and met with staff doctors, but I never felt like I was in a hospital. We had a good time, ate really good food, and went out and did exciting things like equine therapy and field trips to museums and recreational outings to the movies. As a dual diagnosis teen, it was helpful to address my borderline personality disorder and depression as well as my addiction and alcoholism issues. Being dual diagnosed can be challenging, but Visions helped me get some great tools to make my life fulfilling and awesome and my disorders manageable.
