Dual Diagnosis Treatment Adults

Dual Diagnosis Treatment Adults


Gulfport Behavioral offers an adult dual diagnosis inpatient program for adults suffering from co-occurring mental and behavioral conditions and addiction disorders. The program provides a secure, clinical environment in which patients can identify the cause of both problems and learn to work through them. The goal is to help them find long-term mental wellness and sobriety.

Everyone is different and depending on the situation and condition, we recommend an appropriate level of care that best fits the individual. At each level of care, we ensure that each person’s needs are addressed. Our inpatient therapy plans are structured to those individual needs. As treatment proceeds, our patients progress through various levels of care and therapy that help them form a sound set of steps toward a path of mental wellness and recovery. Our mental health and addiction programs can help individuals transition back into their communities by continuing care through outpatient intensive programs and qualified professionals while rebuilding trust within their support system and using new coping skills to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Medically Monitored Detoxification

Substances that require medical detoxification can include alcohol, benzodiazepines and opiates including heroin.

Our inpatient detox program helps individuals begin the addiction recovery process so they can continue treatment in a structured environment. Care is provided by a multidisciplinary treatment team consisting of a psychiatrist, nurses, therapists and social workers. Once an individual is medically stable, they can transition into individual and group therapy that includes:

  • Substance use psychoeducational group therapy
  • Experiential group therapy
  • Therapy including 12-step principles and journaling
  • Narcotics Anonymous® and Alcoholics Anonymous ® meetings

The inpatient detox program accepts TRICARE®, Medicare, Managed Medicare, Medicaid, Managed Medicaid and most commercial insurance.

Transitioning to Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Program

Our inpatient rehabilitation program specializes in providing comprehensive treatment for individuals with mental health issues and co-occurring addictions. Our goal is to provide a therapeutic environment for individuals with emotional and behavioral issues, including:

  • Alcohol and drug use
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depressive disorders
  • Trauma history (including post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • Other mental health diagnoses

Treatment and programming components can include:

  • Medical, psychiatric and psychological assessments
  • Individual therapy sessions each week
  • Family sessions as needed
  • Ongoing psychiatric medication management
  • NA®/ AA® meetings
  • Therapy including 12-step principles and journaling

Individuals may step down from detox or be admitted through an outside referral source, such as a physician, mental health therapist or family member.
