The term co-occurring disorder describes the diagnosis of more than one mental health or chemical dependency condition occurring at the same time. Upwards of 60% of all individuals diagnosed with an eating disorder also have a co-occurring disorder that is getting in the way of them enjoying a healthy and peaceful life. Often, the co-occurring disorders are the underlying cause of addiction. Unfortunately, most recovery programs are not staffed properly and not trained to be able to diagnose co-occurring disorders, and so their efforts to help people overcome their addiction are rarely successful.

Our Clinical team is comprised of a Psychiatrist, and Physician who is board certified in Addictionology, masters level therapists, and addiction counselor specialists. Upon admission, they will conduct both a medical assessment and a Psychiatric evaluation, so that any underlying co-occurring disorders can be identified and incorporated into the treatment plan. Follow-up appointments with our staff doctors will occur regularly if medically necessary, and medication monitoring will be provided throughout your stay.
