Co-Occurring Substance Use Disorder

co-occurring drug and/or alcohol abuse

Cambridge Behavioral Hospital offers treatment to men and women, ages 18 and older, who are suffering primarily from a mental illness that has contributed to a substance use disorder. Otherwise known as a dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorder, these ailments require a very special level of care that we are proud to provide.

The program is designed for individuals who have a substance use disorder and are exhibiting one or more of the following co-occurring mental health issues:

Assessment Process

Cambridge Behavioral Hospital provides the highest quality assessment, diagnosis, stabilization, and treatment for adults with co-occurring substance use disorders which require inpatient care.

At each level in the continuum of care, we provide treatment with kindness, empathy, and dignity. In this way, we maximize each patient’s ability to achieve a successful, long-term recovery. During the assessment process, we help patients identify their histories and goals to effectively place them at the right level of care.

Before a patient begins treatment, several assessments are conducted to evaluate their physical, social, and emotional health. This helps determine the appropriate level of care, whether that’s our Adult Mental Health Program or our Co-Occurring Substance Use Disorder program.

Treatment Modalities

To provide effective co-occurring substance use disorder treatment, we employ a variety of evidence-based treatments. Some of these include: 

  • Cognitive Screenings: In these friendly, personable evaluations, you will meet with a mental health professional to discuss your personal history. All questions will be respectful, and your answers will never be judged at our treatment center. This step simply allows us to find the proper level of care for your unique needs.
  • Medication Evaluation and Management: Depending on the case, medication can help or harm your mental health. By discussing your history with mental health and addiction, a clinically trained member of our staff will work with you to decide whether or not you may benefit from medication.
  • Group Therapy / Education: In our psychotherapy educational groups, you will meet with other people suffering from co-occurring disorders. Here, you share your journey and receive addiction and mental health education from a mental health and addiction professional.
  • Family Conferences: Family is often the foundation of recovery. Here, you and your loved ones will meet with an expert in rebuilding family relationships. They will share important information about mental health and addiction, then work toward strengthening your familial unit.
  • Activity Therapy: Our recreational therapies help patients develop key life skills while working on their recoveries. For example, regular sports activities could help you get physically fit, which in turn can improve your mental health and reduce your risk of relapse.

Discharge Process

Planning for discharge, be it returning to a home environment or an alternate living arrangement, begins the day of admission. Social workers and the treatment team, with the input and assistance of family members, help to make the return to community living a safe and seamless experience. This improves each patient’s chances of avoiding relapse in the future and maintaining a healthy, happy outlook on life.
