Individuals who have a co-occurring mood or thought
disorder along with an addiction, such as alcohol or drugs, will
benefit from the dual diagnosis program at Glendale Adventist
Participants spend a portion of the day in groups focused on
mental wellness and the rest of the day in a group based on the
12-step model of addiction recovery. Treatment focuses on helping
participants understand how their mental health and
addiction issues are tied together, the importance of addressing
both of them at the same time and helping them deal with the
shame and guilt that often accompanies addiction. They will learn
that to feel mentally well, they must remain sober, and to remain
sober, they must feel mentally well.
To determine if this program is right for you, ask yourself the
- Are you dealing with the symptoms of a mood disorder, anxiety
disorder or thought disorder?
- Do you have an addiction to alcohol, street drugs,
prescription drugs, food or something else?
- Have the symptoms persisted despite treatment with an
individual therapist and/or psychiatrist?
If you feel the above situation describes you, call (818)
409-8347 to speak to a mental health professional.
