Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment
By providing the highest standard in coordinated support for participants in its dual diagnosis treatment programs, WestBridge has become a national leader in the behavioral health field. The WestBridge philosophy integrates co-occurring disorders treatment with continuous family education and support, making it a pioneer in providing one professional team in one setting to work with participants and their families throughout their recovery process. We offer people who come into our program the comfort and assurance of personalized care through the development of strategies geared specifically to their needs and to the strengths of their families. Our residential dual diagnosis rehab centers in Manchester, New Hampshire, and Brooksville, Florida, welcome adult men who experience co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. By using evidence-based practices in establishing relationships with participants at our dual diagnosis treatment center, we remain supportive and involved from the moment of initial screening to the time of celebrating recovery.
Co-occurring Disorders Treatment Includes Family Education
The education and support services WestBridge provides for families of our participants is a key component of our co-occurring disorders treatment. We supply a workbook designed to help families understand mental health and substance use disorders. It presents the information they need to understand the types of stress that contribute to mental illness and offers tools for stress management. The materials also inform families about the underlying causes of substance use disorders and how substance use can affect family members, friends and employers. They begin to understand their role in the treatment process.
In addition, families work with the dual diagnosis treatment team to understand how WestBridge uses medication as a recovery tool and as an important part of helping participants on the road to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual recovery. Family education and support also includes “weekends of hope” as part of the relationship-building process. These weekends carve out time for families to come together with the multi-disciplinary team that is providing treatment. They are able to discuss updates on the progress of the participants, as well as learn about new clinical information as it becomes available. When families meet with one another during these weekend events, they begin to develop increasing compassion and understanding as they share their stories with one another.
Evidence-based Practices Used In Dual Diagnosis Treatment
In dealing with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, WestBridge relies on evidence-based practices, which have a proven track record in long-term dual diagnosis treatment. With the ultimate goal of assisting participants and their families in learning ways to manage the problems associated with co-occurring disorders, evidence-based practices pave the way to recovery at a pace that is comfortable and encouraging. Even if the participant requires hospitalization at some point during treatment, the WestBridge team will visit the hospital and cooperate with measures necessary to follow through when the participant returns to the WestBridge facility.
The research-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 participants who have succeeded in maintaining a healthy lifestyle upon recovery.
Our Programs & Facilities
Doing what works in helping families and individuals 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 individuals 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 and women are based on the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model. Studies have shown that ACT services are highly effective for individuals 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 families and participants in working together over the course of each individual’s stay through education, skill building, and problem solving.
