IOP for Co-occurring Disorders
Our Approach to Treatment
We believe that you are the expert when it comes to your life. We are here to guide and treat you, but you know what you need most. That’s why we work with you to create a customized care plan that includes measureable, achievable goals and objectives.
Every client receives a customized care plan, which outlines an individualized treatment path. We view our relationship as a partnership with our clients. We aren’t going to try to pull you to where we think you need to be, we are going to meet you where you are.
Treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment completed by a licensed therapist. A full medical and psychiatric profile allows us to create a treatment plan that truly meets your specific needs. Then clients can choose between our morning and evening Intensive Outpatient Programs for Co-occurring Disorders. Our daytime program meets Monday through Friday from 9 am-noon while our evening sessions are offered from 6-9 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Each three-hour treatment session is comprised of both specialty groups (education/lecture) and group therapy (process groups).
Please contact La Paloma Outpatient Services at 901-729-6703 with questions and/or concerns you may have or to sign up for the group.
The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has determined that co-occurring disorders affect more than 10 million Americans each year. The terms “co-occurring” and “dual diagnosis” are often used interchangeably, and describe a condition where a person is affected by both chemical dependency and an emotional or psychiatric illness ranging from depression or bipolar disorder to PTSD or anxiety.
The best option for treating co-occurring disorders is an integrated treatment model. La Paloma’s Intensive Outpatient Program for Co-occurring Disorders addresses both the chemical addiction and any psychiatric disease, approaching both as two separate entities but also treating them simultaneously. Our Dual Diagnosis approach provides the best opportunity for you or your loved one to achieve complete and lasting recovery.
