Rose Hill understands that individuals suffering from mental health issues may have more than one psychiatric diagnosis. It is important for these individuals to get help from an organization that understands their complex history and the treatment that they need. Rose Hill Center believes that treating the whole person gives individuals the best chance of lasting recovery.
What Is a Co-Occurring Disorder?
A co-occurring disorder refers to a condition when someone has two or more disorders at the same time. Just like anxiety and depression can occur simultaneously, many mental health issues are complex and multi-faceted. If people already have a mental illness diagnosis, it’s not uncommon for them to develop additional disorders too.
When it comes to co-occurring treatment, it’s important to note that no two individuals experience treatment in the same way. Everyone is different and therefore responds to mental health treatment differently. At Rose Hill Center, our clinical staff works hard to determine the best treatment options for our residents.
While we use different treatment methods for each disorder, some treatment methods overlap. Talk therapy is a great option for nearly any kind of mental disorder. Some proven approaches also include:
- Individual therapy
- Psycho-educational and 12-step group therapy
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavioral therapy
- Radically Open Dialectical behavioral therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
