Adult and Young Adult Enhanced Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Nystrom & Associates, Ltd. Enhanced Dual Diagnosis Treatment Programs are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services under Rule 31 and are supported by our Rule 29 mental health multidisciplinary staff. We treat dual diagnosis and chemical dependency with an integrated approach.
Our programs are designed for individuals experiencing negative consequences from alcohol or drug use, with family, school or with the legal system. Additionally, people may suffer from specific emotional problems such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, personality disorders, or other serious and persistent mental illnesses. We understand the relationship between substance abuse/addiction and emotional problems or mental illness, and integrate treatment in order to address both issues. Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselors, Mental Health Professionals, and Mental Health Practitioners work as a team to help clients work through complex problems and develop a strong recovery plan.
What We Do
A Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselor conducts an evaluation to determine the level of chemical involvement. This evaluation process includes routine screening for co-occurring conditions, allowing for early identification of potential mental health/emotional problems. If a client enrolls in our program as a result of an evaluation, the client will complete a comprehensive assessment to determine the specific nature of the mental health and/or substance abuse/addiction problem to determine the course of treatment. Our programs serve a wide spectrum of dual problems for persons experiencing low to severe problems. We provide group, individual, and family counseling at a variety of intensity levels.
Core programming is based on Motivational Interviewing and Stage Wise Treatment strategies designed to partner with the client providing individualized treatment planning with educational and skills based approaches.
Treatment programming for adults, young adults and adolescents utilize an evidence-based, interactive curriculum that is easy to use and understand. Other components include psycho-education, skills training, and family program. A strong collaborative relationship with our ARMHS and PFBD programs offers eligible clients access to services to assist them in stabilizing their recovery environment in their home or community. Program participants have ready access to a number of other in-house services to enhance their treatment plan, and encourage continuity of care including: psychological testing, mental health therapy, psychiatry, family therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and nutrition services.
