Many people that come into recovery suffer from co-occurring disorders. Sometimes the substance abuse issue causes it, and sometimes the condition causes people to use substances. The bottom line is that having a co-occurring condition can make it harder to stop using than if you do not have one. The Ranch dual diagnosis treatment center in Pennsylvania will work with you to get to the bottom of your substance abuse so that you can be free once and for all.

The Ranch PA Can Help

The Ranch was founded on the principles that people are all different, they need to be treated holistically, and your recovery should help integrate all of you. Many dual diagnosis treatment programs only focus on quitting the substance. They believe that people will automatically get better if they stop using. This could not be further from the truth. Not giving people the treatment that they need leads to relapse, heartache, and money wasted on recovery programs that won’t work.

The Ranch dual diagnosis treatment center in Wrightsville, PA concentrates on all aspects of the client. We will sit down with you and take a good look at your past for trauma, grief, loss, or attachment wounds. These are often reasons that people can develop PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), a substance abuse problem, depression, anxiety, and more.

Addiction Treatment Therapies

We use a variety of drug addiction therapies with our clients. We try to use a mix of experiential and talk therapies. Some of the types of therapy that we use on The Ranch include:

  • Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Somatic Therapy and Equine Therapy
  • Energy Work
  • Native American Healing Traditions
  • Psychodrama, Mindfulness, and Adventure Therapy

For example, some therapies, like adventure therapy, will take place in a group. Once the session is over, we will further break out and discuss what happened a bit more. Sometimes we will take a break to soak the experience in. There are many ways to go about healing, and we do our best to allow people to experience a range of techniques. 

Additionally, we find that this is the best way to get as many clients as possible to have moments of clarity. These moments are integral to remaining sober over the long run. The more clarity a client has, the better they are aligning themselves with their new sober life.

What You Will Do

When you come into our dual diagnosis treatment program, you will likely start in the medical detox. If you have recently had substances in your system, they need to be cleared out so that you can make good decisions when you start the self-discovery work in rehab. In our medical detox, you will be cared for 24 hours a day, and you will be made as comfortable as possible. You have no reason to dread the detox process when you do it with The Ranch.

After this stage, you will head to the residential rehab part of the facility and get to know your home area as well as your counselors. Here you will begin to find out what types of therapy work for you and what does not. 

Likewise, we do encourage people to try most of the activities at least once. After this, if it’s not for you, that is okay. The point is, you didn’t end up where you overnight. So to change, you will need to put in the same kind of effort. 

For example, at the center, you will:

  • Detox
  • Get to know people in your group
  • Work on many healing techniques to find what works
  • Work on your recovery in ways that you understand
  • Formulate an aftercare plan

Our Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center

You will need to develop an aftercare plan. This is the master plan that you take back home with you after leaving the ranch. Working the program is going to help you to stay sober over the long run. Sobriety, especially for people with a co-occurring disorder, can be a lifelong battle. The more you know yourself and the better your aftercare plan is, then the better chance you have of staying sober.
