What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Dual diagnosis treatment addresses substance abuse, addiction, and co-occurring mental health disorders, recognizing that addiction and mental health issues often go hand in hand. It refers to two or more disorders occurring simultaneously, such as addiction and depression, anxiety, or schizophrenia, which can interact and worsen one another, making treatment more complicated.

Substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders must be treated together to achieve long-term recovery. Dual diagnosis treatment involves a multidisciplinary approach that combines medical detoxification, therapy, medication management, and support groups. The primary goal of dual diagnosis treatment is to help individuals achieve and maintain sobriety from drug abuse and alcoholism while improving their mental health and overall quality of life.

Treatment may involve cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, family therapy, or other evidence-based approaches. It may also include medication to manage symptoms of mental health disorders, such as antidepressants or antipsychotics.1

It has a good energy, and positive vibe feeling of peace and serenity. Staff is kind too! It has been a breath of fresh air! Perfect for starting your brand new life!

I can honestly say that this place helped me with my SUD and changed my way of thinking. The staff are all so open and friendly and someone is always there to lend an ear or a helping hand. I’ve been to a few rehabs and they have been nothing compared to Virtue in how they were run, the therapy and therapists, and the fact that the staff all love their jobs and truly do care for you. If you need help, or someone you love needs help, then don’t waste time or money trying anywhere else.

I hit a rough patch heading into the holidays and relapsed, so I went back to Virtue for help. I had gone to the facility in Vegas a while back, but for insurance reasons I had to go to Killeen. Yes! Virtue is that good of a facility it’s worth traveling to, Killeen provided transportation to and from Austin airport. Really the only thing different between the two facilities was the location. Killeen is definitely a 5-star treatment center, very clean with beautiful room and comfortable beds. The staff was amazing from housekeeping to the director! Their program is great with a nice mix of classes and free time, with plenty of activities to do. The food is really good too, provided by in house executive chefs! Just another shoutout to the staff, very caring, genuine and loving what they do! I had forgotten a couple of things when I had packed, and a staff member went personally to the store and picked up what I needed. You cannot go wrong by picking Virtue for your treatment! oh… also ask about “Tyrone Bingo” it’s a wonderful night of entertainment!! Big hearted thank you to all the staff, you’re all a blessing!! followed with the “Serenity Prayer.”

Virtue is a special place. As soon as you arrive you are accepted as if you are family. The staff is beyond amazing. They are the definition of ride or die. They will go to the ends of the earth to make sure you have everything you need to be successful on your road to recovery. If you want a better life call them now, check in, and wait it out, because patience is a Virtue!!!!!!!

I cannot say enough good things about Virtue. This place helped me completely turn my life around. The staff are an amazing group of people who are what really makes this recovery center what it is. The compassion and real love they share with each and everyone who comes through the door on their road to recovery is astounding. If I listed off all the names of the staff who actually care wholeheartedly about each individual I would need a copy of the payroll list they are all so amazing. Thank you all so much for everything.
