At WestBridge, we are committed to providing optimal care in a truly integrated dual diagnosis treatment program. Our family-centered, evidence-based treatment is for adult men experiencing symptoms of a co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorder.
The foundation of our practices were developed by the Center for Evidence-Based Practices at the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center and have a proven track record in long-term dual diagnosis treatment.
We address each individual’s dual disorders simultaneously in the same setting, by the same clinicians. Both family and community play an integral role in treatment.
What is Integrated Treatment?
Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment (IDDT) is an evidence-based practice designed specifically for men with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders. This treatment approach helps men recover by simultaneously offering mental health and addiction services together, in the same setting.
Integrated, Evidence-Based Treatment
Our treatment plans incorporate a wide variety of evidence-based practices and support services. Based on the participant’s stage of change, the clinical team customizes and adjusts the approaches needed to keep recovery progressing.
Individualized Treatment Planning
Each man at WestBridge collaborates with their family and their team in an ongoing planning process to create and maintain a Personal Achievement Agenda, which evolves with stages of recovery.
Our multi-disciplinary team and integrated continuum of care allow us to manage coexisting health conditions common in those with mental health and substance use issues. This helps improve health and wellness.
Hope & Recovery
WestBridge utilizes a comprehensive and long-term approach to treatment, which revolves around core beliefs in hope and optimism. Staff utilize a strengths-based approach and language, and all participants are encouraged to believe that they can recover, as others have at WestBridge. Ultimately, the goal of integrated treatment is to help resolve issues so that they can pursue and attain life goals.
