Monima is a dual diagnosis outpatient treatment center designed specifically for women seeking support with both a mental health condition and substance abuse disorder. We recognize that no two clients are the same and a dual-diagnosis looks different for everyone. That’s why our team provides inclusive and individualized care based on the needs, diagnoses, and goals of each client — regardless of where they are at in their wellness journey.
Navigating both substance abuse and a mental health condition is challenging — and is especially difficult if you are facing it alone. Our mission is to provide care, support, and guidance every step of the way. We offer a variety of treatment modalities to address each the unique needs, diagnoses, and wellness goals of each individual.
We foster a safe and inclusive environment where women feel empowered and supported during recovery. Monima offers the unique opportunity for clients to build lasting bonds and a sense of community while in treatment.
Dual diagnosis — the combination of a mental health condition and substance abuse — is complex and each journey is unique, not universal. The dual diagnosis treatment program options at Monima provide individualized and comprehensive care that combines a variety of traditional and alternative techniques, from CBT to Reiki and Acupuncture. Our team recognizes the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit and our holistic dual diagnosis treatment center and recovery programs are designed to foster overall and lasting mental wellness and sobriety.
The dual diagnosis treatment recovery program at Monima considers biological, psychological, social, and environmental factors that are unique to each individual. Our approach to treatment promotes long-term wellness, sobriety, and complete healing that goes beyond just relieving symptoms. At Monima, we provide an integrated, personalized, and diverse range of services that set each patient up for a breakthrough in their wellness journey and the chance at a sustainable and life-changing recovery.
The dual diagnosis model of treatment is an integrated approach that addresses both substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions simultaneously. This model recognizes the complex interaction between these disorders and seeks to provide comprehensive care that considers their interconnected nature.
The key to treatment is understanding the ways each condition impacts the other. Treatment varies based on the individual, their mental health diagnoses, the severity of symptoms, and the types of substances being abused. Treatment is often a combination of the following:
The term ‘co-occurring disorder’ is often used interchangeably with ‘dual diagnosis’, but it is not exactly the same thing. The key differentiator is that co-occurring disorder is a more general term and can be used to refer to any combination of mental health conditions. Dual diagnosis is specifically used when substance abuse is one of the two (or more) conditions.
Example of co-occurring disorder: Someone who is diagnosed with one or more mental health disorders (i.e. depression, bipolar, PTSD, anxiety). It can also refer to someone who is diagnosed with a mental health disorder in addition to an intellectual/learning disability (i.e. autism, ADHD).
Example of dual diagnosis: Someone who is diagnosed with a mental health disorder (i.e. depression, bipolar disorder) in addition to diagnosed with substance abuse disorder (i.e. alcohol addiction, drug misuse).
