Co-Occurring Disorder Rehab & Treatment Center near Santa Rosa, CA

Azure Acres Treatment Center has helped individuals struggling with co-occurring disorders build a strong foundation for long-term recovery since 1957. Azure Acres provides high-quality alcohol and drug abuse treatment for adults near Santa Rosa, California.

It is not uncommon for people who have developed substance use disorders to also struggle with symptoms of other mental health disorders. At Azure Acres Treatment Center near Santa Rosa, California, we refer to these secondary mental health issues as co-occurring disorders.

In many cases, people who struggle with co-occurring disorders may not even recognize the symptoms of their co-occurring disorder. For example, the symptoms of depression may be masked by the highs and lows of drug usage, or the high-energy symptoms of anxiety may be temporarily disguised by the intoxicating effects of depressants such as alcohol.

While overcoming any substance use disorder on its own can be a difficult and taxing process, when a person is also wrestling with a co-occurring mental health disorder, the process of recovery can become exponentially more difficult since the symptoms of substance abuse and the symptoms of a co-occurring disorders can build off of each other. As a result, our Sonoma County treatment center places a strong emphasis on assessing each resident’s individual concerns so that we can provide a truly comprehensive treatment plan that will give each resident the best possible chance of success in treatment.

At Azure Acres, we provide addiction-focused care and primarily address substance use disorders in treatment. However, we recognize that successful rehab requires treating individuals as individuals as opposed to sets of symptoms. Therefore, we take into account co-occurring conditions as we work with each resident to develop an individualized treatment plan. Some of the more common co-occurring disorders that we have provided treatment for in the past include:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Phobias
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Major depressive disorder
  • Persistent depressive disorder/dysthymia

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide treatment for people with severe co-occurring disorders, though we are happy to provide referrals to other rehab centers that may help address these more severe co-occurring concerns. Individuals who wish to come heal with us must be stable in their co-occurring mental health symptoms.

We believe that every individual can, with the help of a dedicated and experienced treatment team, learn the skills that will enable him or her to lead a life of sobriety and abstinence from drug and alcohol abuse. If you or someone you love is struggling with a substance use disorder and a co-occurring mental health disorder, look no further than Azure Acres’ time-tested treatment and rehab center that has helped more than 20,000 people find freedom from substance abuse. By contacting our caring admissions team, you can help yourself or someone you love take a first step towards a lifetime of sobriety.

An assessment is an important first step toward treatment of and recovery from addiction.

My experience with the counselors at Azure has always been positive and uplifting, full of education and insight, and very rewarding. One of the things I enjoy most about Azure is the opportunity for aftercare and fellowshipping amongst such a tight knit community.
