By providing the highest standard of integrated services for men in our dual diagnosis treatment programs, WestBridge has become a national leader in the behavioral health profession. We use co-occurring disorders treatment, an evidence-based approach that helps males with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders recover while receiving mental health and addiction treatment at the same time, in the same setting. The gentlemen who come into our program receive individualized care and evidence-based strategies geared specifically to their needs, as well as their strengths and those of their families.
Among dual diagnosis treatment centers, WestBridge excels in the successful treatment of men with co-occurring disorders. Our residential centers in Manchester, New Hampshire, and Brooksville, Florida, welcome men over the age of 18 who experience co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. By establishing collaborative relationships with participants at our dual diagnosis treatment centers, we remain supportive from the first phone call.
Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment Includes Family Education and Support
The education and support services that WestBridge provides for families of our participants are key components of our co-occurring disorders treatment. Our Family Education and Support (FES) program is designed to help families understand mental health and substance use disorders. FES presents the information families need to understand the types of stress that contribute to the development of symptoms of both disorders, and offers tools that families can use to help reduce or prevent symptoms. The materials also inform families about the underlying causes of mental illness and substance use disorders and how these can affect family members, friends and employers. Families begin to understand their role in the treatment process, and the process of recovery for the family.
In addition, families work with the dual diagnosis treatment team to understand how WestBridge uses medication as a tool and an important part of helping men on the road to recovery. Family support services also include Weekends of Hope as part of the healing process. These weekends create opportunities for families to come together with the multi-disciplinary team that is providing treatment. Families are able to discuss updates on their loved one’s progress, as well as learn about new clinical information. When families meet with one another during these weekend events, they develop increasing hope and understanding as they share their stories with one another.

Evidence-Based Practices Used In Dual Diagnosis Treatment
In treating co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, WestBridge relies on evidence-based practices that have a proven track record in long-term dual diagnosis treatment. These evidence-based practices include cognitive behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, assertive community treatment, supported employment, and behavioral family therapy, among others.
The evidence-based practices used at WestBridge have been developed by the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center, which evaluates their effectiveness every three years. In the most recent evaluation, WestBridge achieved the highest possible ranking in all of its evidence-based treatment areas. The most meaningful validation of our co-occurring disorders treatment, however, comes from the testimonials of praise from the men who have succeeded in maintaining a healthy lifestyle upon recovery.
Recovery is a marathon, not a sprint.
WestBridge can help you reach the finish line.

The Whole Person
WestBridge supports the long-term recovery of men and their families who experience co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders by providing residential and outpatient evidence-based treatment.
Treatment gave me my whole life back.
It gave my parents their son back. It gave my siblings their brother back.
Doing what works in helping men and their families achieve recovery from dual disorders is important to us at WestBridge. In all of our programs, we utilize evidence-based practices that have been specifically designed for men and families that experience co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.
Our residential treatment programs in Manchester, NH, and Brooksville, FL, are safe, home-like environments that provide evaluation, treatment, and support for adult men who experience co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders. Our caring professionals are on-site 24 hours a day.
Our Care Management Services for adult men is based on the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model. Studies have shown that ACT services are highly effective for men with co-occurring disorders who may need extra support to live independently in their communities and gain recovery skills.
WestBridge is strongly committed to the integration of family in treatment. We have developed the evidence-based practice of Family Education and Support (FES). During FES, we support men and their families in working together over the course of his stay through education, skill building, and problem solving.
At WestBridge we work with men and their families from all around the country, and in some cases, the world. Once we have completed our screening process and determined that our services may be well-suited to meet your family’s needs, we have the ability to bring our admissions process to you, wherever you are.
