Find important information that will help demystify Dual Diagnosis and make it easier for you to find proper treatment.
Every Foundations Recovery Network treatment center is designed to offer the most effective addiction and co-occurring disorders treatment possible.
Co-occurring mental health conditions and substance use disorders affect nearly 8.9 million Americans each year. Of those only 7.4% receive appropriate treatment, with the vast majority bounced among treatment systems with different and opposing treatment structures.
Few drug treatment centers specialize in treating complex co-occurring disorders. Nationally, research continues to reveal that people with co-occurring disorders need a specialized form of treatment, referred to as integrated services or dual diagnosis treatment.
Mental health treatment and addiction treatment have historically and continue to be separated systems of care. While many research studies have been performed on mental health and addictions separately, it has only been within recent years that studies have emerged on people who struggle with both conditions in tandem. This emerging research identifies that traditional separated systems of care not only alienate the consumer from treatment, but they also result in much poorer outcomes that those experienced by people with single disorders. More surprising, we are now learning from these studies that programs predominantly designed to treat a specific disorder are actually only capable of treating the minority of those in need where,
In fact, up to 65.5% of people with a substance dependence disorder had at least one mental disorder and 51% of people with a mental disorder had at least one substance abuse disorder.
We are also increasingly learning that these poorer outcomes result as much from these separate and contradictory systems of care as from the diagnoses themselves with people who have co-occurring conditions comprising the majority of the 10 percent of people using over 70 percent of the nation's healthcare resources. There are now more than 14 million people in the U.S. with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders.
Foundations Recovery Networks' treatment programs were founded on a simple dedication to improving the lives of persons with co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders.
As an emerging specialist in integrated treatment, FRN has acquired several residential alcohol and drug treatment centers:
By tailoring services to treat both disorders simultaneously, our clients are achieving results that transcend the limitations of traditional treatments.
Our implemented programs are designed to address the needs of both middle income/private insurance clients and high-end executive clients. Combined, we offer approximately 207 residential beds distinguishing us nationally as the premier integrated treatment provider of co-occurring addiction treatment.
Our success stems from our ability to offer highly effective clinical services that are not based on historical confrontational approaches that drive consumers away from treatment. Combining our research based innovations with emerging evidence based practices, we offer some of the lowest drop out rates in the industry - meaning that clients remain engaged in our services.
Through comprehensive outcomes data on clients six and twelve months after program discharge, a 3-year SAMHSA-funded evaluation of Foundations Associates' residential program indicated abstinence in 70-80 percent of Foundations' clients up to 1 year following treatment. Severity of psychiatric symptoms was reduced by 60 percent, with corresponding improvements in quality of life.
Our results suggest that the model of integrated and continuous treatment breaks the repetitive cycle of traditional separate systems of care for people with co-occurring conditions.
We attribute this to our practices of the following:
Motivational Approaches that engage clients and retain clients in services. We train clinical staff to use motivational enhancement strategies, a field tested method of implementing client directed services that maximizes client engagement and avoids use of historical confrontational strategies.
