Dual-Diagnosis: The Substance Use & Mental Health Connection

Holistic Treatment for Mental Health and Addiction

To truly treat addiction, we need to address the root cause. Mental health conditions can cause and worsen substance use issues, which can leave you stuck in a cycle of self-destructive behavior.

Our holistic approach is straightforward and effective. We look at each person’s unique situation and offer customized treatment plans that really work. We also intentionally keep group sizes small, so there is no fear of getting lost in the crowd.

Whether it’s day-to-day support or more intensive care, our evidence-based treatments are designed to address both mental health and addiction issues together.

How We Are Different

Sandstone Care aims to drive positive lasting change in real people. We understand that you have unique circumstances, so we offer a more personalized experience than you would find anywhere else.

The Signs of Dual Diagnosis

Dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorders, involves the simultaneous presence of a mental health condition and a substance use problem.

Identifying these signs early can be a turning point, leading to effective treatment and a path towards recovery and balance. Our aim here is to provide you with clear, informative insights about these signs, empowering you to make informed decisions about seeking help and support.

Not only was the group supportive, but the support from the staff was amazing.

I initially came to Sandstone for IOP and it helped me get through a really though time in my life. I ended up staying through OP and I would recommend it to anyone that needs support with their mental health.

You have questions. We have answers.

Our goal is to provide the most helpful information. Please reach out to us if you have any additional questions. We are here to help in any way we can.

Yes, we understand that many people who abuse drugs and alcohol also suffer from depression, anxiety, etc. So, we have a psychiatrist on staff who can diagnose co-occurring disorders and help address the underlying issues that often lead to substance abuse.

See Our Team

Yes. We have a teen track, which is for teens ages 13-17, and a young adult track for individuals ages 18-30.

The amount of treatment needed varies greatly and depends on one’s individual needs. At Sandstone Care, we believe in treating our clients as a whole person instead of just treating their substance use disorder or mental health disorders in isolation. Our program is individualized to meet those specific needs and as such length of stay may vary. Typically the Young Adult IOP program lasts for 8 to 12 weeks.

Our care team is an integrated team of professionals who collaborate with each client to reach their goals. Our team consists of licensed clinicians, medical providers, and a teacher.

The teens and young adults at Sandstone Care are bright and creative spirits who have been impacted by a variety of mental health issues. Typically, they are struggling with, or have experienced, anxiety, depression, trauma, and/or substance use. Individuals with a history of violence, are actively suicidal or psychotic, that have severe and persistent mental illness such as schizophrenia, or that exhibit behavioral issues that would disrupt the treatment milieu are not appropriate for Sandstone Care. Each client is carefully screened by the admissions team and the Program Director, and if needed, the Executive Clinical Director and Medical Director for appropriateness.
