Footprints BHC’s holistic treatment methods are exceptionally well-suited to the treatment of a dual diagnosis.
We’ll introduce you to mind-body healing practices specifically designed to restore your emotional equilibrium and restructure your brain chemistry to promote calm reactions and a peaceful mindset. This makes them a superb antidote to the unpleasant side effects of bipolar disorder and substance abuse.
Your treatment regimen for bipolar disorder will likely include medication, since there are several types that have proven effective against its symptoms. These medications can help stabilize your moods and give you relief from the emotional pain of your struggles. But medication is only a temporary solution, while methods for transforming your responses to stress, hardship and disappointment will leave you far better equipped to manage your mental health as you move forward in recovery.
When you undergo integrated treatment for a dual diagnosis with us your substance abuse issues will never be neglected. Throughout your time in residence you’ll be immersed in an environment where overcoming addiction is a final and ultimate goal. You’ll learn much about your bipolar disorder, what it means and how you can manage it. But your substance abuse remains a serious threat and will be treated as such, aggressively and without compromise.
At Footprints BHC no aspect of your dual diagnosis will be allowed to define you. Each therapy session, group meeting, classroom experience, holistic healing program and individualized activity you co-create with your counselors will emphasize the special challenges you face as a person with both chemical dependency and bipolar disorder.
As you heal we help you prepare for a better life, which makes our dual diagnosis program a gift that keeps on giving.
