Mankato Dual-Diagnosis Program
What Is Dual Diagnosis?
Those who struggle with substance abuse often have underlying mental health issues, which can be a barrier to relapse prevention and long-term recovery. Our comprehensive, integrated program combines the experience of professionals from both the mental health and substance abuse fields into a single treatment program and setting. Our counselors effectively treat both the addiction and any underlying mental health concerns.
What further sets our program apart is the inclusion of a faith-based model of recovery, which brings spirituality into the process, resulting in sustained treatment outcomes.
- Three-hour group sessions, held three days per week. Average group size is 6-8 members.
- Multiple counselors during a three-hour session bring their expertise to the group experience.
- Weekly individual therapy sessions for each group member.
- Group members will be assigned a chemical abuse counselor and a mental health counselor to receive a coordinated system of care.
- Supportive services for families, including monthly family group sessions.
- Aftercare services following completion of program.
