At the Affordable Rehab of Worcester, we actively try to involve you in the setting goals and developing ways to change your life when you seek help for your dual diagnosis. We will educate you on both your mental illness, and how your addiction to drugs/or alcohol interacts with your illness. Our goal is to teach you coping strategies for living productively with your mental illness.
We will also help you identify strategies for staying clean and not turning back to drugs and/or alcohol. With dual diagnosis, it is often helpful to find a group of peers in similar circumstances. This can be an important part of your aftercare treatment, as it provides a forum for discussing challenges, sobriety and finding support.
