Conditions and Issues Treated

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment at Denali Family Services - Muldoon Road

Dual Diagnosis is a specific relationship between two or more disorders that have the same symptoms and can sometimes be treated together. This is used in the treatment planning process when dealing with drug addicts. Dual diagnosis can be viewed as a chronic medical condition that has comorbid psychiatric disorders.

Although addiction and a mental illness may have separate symptoms that are not easy to detect, they often go hand in hand. Many times, drug abuse is a direct result of the mental illness. In other words, treating the addiction will not resolve all of your issues. Unless you also treat the underlying mental illness, you will not be successful in achieving sobriety.

Levels of Care

This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Dual-Diagnosis, Outpatient, with additional therapies available as listed below.

An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction, or a co-occurring disorder. The patient must attend the Alaska facility for their therapy and other programs but are able to return home each night.

Therapies & Programs

Individual Therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. Therapists work with patients to identify the root of their addiction and figure out how to better handle the issues that led to them using drugs. Individual Therapy is the one-on-one session where people meet with their therapist. Individual therapy provides a safe space for people to open up and discuss personal and sensitive topics which they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting.

Intimate relationships can be damaged during addiction, and professional help may be necessary to rebuild the often destroyed trust and love. Couples therapy at Denali Family Services - Muldoon Road helps couples improve communication and rebuild trust. Either or both partners will be helped by this treatment administered by professionals. This treatment can also help one or both partners if addiction is the problem.

Family therapy will also help families realize that the addiction is not their fault. For many years, people blamed themselves for an addict’s behavior and felt that they had done something wrong. This is not the case. Addiction is a disease, and it can strike anyone, even if their life seems fine from the outside. It can bring a lot of shame to a family when they have an addict in their midst, but if everyone is open and honest with each other, then they can help everyone stay in recovery.

Group Therapy is utilized by drug treatment centers like Denali Family Services - Muldoon Road to provide the recovering drug addict with a platform to talk about their feelings and experiences. It also provides for an opportunity to learn from other addicts who have successfully overcome their addiction.

Group Therapy is employed in lectures, seminars, or discussion groups (the latter two are typically conducted as “therapy groups”). It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work (though it does not exclude others with lived experience).

Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions. Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is used by drug treatment centers across the United States to help drug addicts become sober. DBT combines traditional behavioral treatments with elements from DBT, including dialectics, distress tolerance, and interlocking issues. It is commonly used to treat Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) along with substance abuse disorders. The four DBT modules are mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is also a popular service for individuals living with addiction. This type of supportive treatment uses both one-on-one counseling and group sessions to teach addicts how to identify thoughts, behaviors and emotions that might increase their risk of relapse.

These professionals can help addicts develop coping skills for managing stress, improving self-esteem and overcoming triggers. They might also use behavioral therapy to help addicts learn how to avoid cravings and warning signs that could lead them back into addiction.

Therapy can be used as a step-down from inpatient treatment or as the primary method of overcoming an addiction. No matter which option is best for the addict, they will teach important emotional coping techniques, which can make it easier for addicts to get through the tough days.
