Dual Diagnosis Treatment


Dual Diagnosis Treatment in Orange County

A dual diagnosis, sometimes referred to as co-occurring disorders, is when a person struggles with both a mental health condition or mental health issue such as an eating disorder, depressive disorder, personality disorder, etc, and a problem with drug addiction/ substance use disorder or drug abuse problem, concurrently. Imagine battling two powerful enemies simultaneously, each one hard enough to defeat on its own. Such a scenario requires specialized strategies and an effective treatment plan. The complexity of dual diagnosis lies in the often intertwined nature of the two conditions. The question “Which came first, the mental health issue or the substance abuse?” A mental health disorder can lead to substance use as an attempt at self-medication, while drug use can trigger or worsen mental health concerns and problems.

405 Recovery's Approach

Comprehensive assessment

At 405 Recovery, we believe in the individuality of each person. Therefore, we conduct a thorough, comprehensive assessment to understand the specific nature and severity of the dual diagnosis. 

individualized Treatment plans

Once the assessment is complete, we create a custom-made treatment plan for each person, similar to how a skilled tailor crafts a suit that perfectly fits the wearer. This treatment plan takes into consideration the person’s unique needs, preferences, and circumstances, ensuring that the therapeutic approach is effective and personalized for the best chance at a full recovery. A treatment plan may include health care services and rehab such as an intensive outpatient program, a partial hospitalization program, or an outpatient program.

One of the pillars of our dual diagnosis treatment is effective medication management. We ensure that medications are used safely and effectively to manage mental disorders as well as to reduce addiction symptoms, reduce cravings, and promote overall well-being.


Our skilled therapists employ evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)dialectical-behavior therapy (DBT), and others to address both mental health and substance use disorders. Think of these therapies as a compass, guiding individuals through the landscape of their minds, and helping them establish healthier thought patterns and behavior.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT is the cornerstone of our treatment approach. Just like a computer programmer rewriting faulty code, CBT helps individuals identify and modify problematic thoughts and behaviors that fuel their mental health and substance use disorders. It equips them with skills to manage triggers, develop healthier coping mechanisms, and prevent relapse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): DBT is another vital tool in our therapeutic repertoire. Imagine a tightrope walker balancing emotions and behaviors. DBT helps individuals manage emotional extremes and impulsive behaviors often seen in dual diagnosis cases, leading to improved emotional regulation and interpersonal relationships.

MI is like a gentle nudge, enhancing an individual’s motivation to change by resolving ambivalence and helping them recognize the adverse effects of their substance use and mental health symptoms. It’s like having a supportive friend who helps you realize your potential and encourages you to take steps towards a healthier life.
