Living with a mental illness can be a difficult and isolating process. However, you can get much-needed support in combating mental health issues at Resurgence Behavioral Health. When you undergo treatment at our facility, you’ll work with a team of caring individuals interested in your long-term overall well-being.

We’re a dual diagnosis treatment center for those experience co-ocurring disorders, offering comprehensive treatment for mental health disorders and substance issues. Our professional team thoroughly understands these disorders and uses research-based techniques to help resolve their effects on your life.


Mental health disorders, commonly referred to as mental illnesses, refer to conditions that affect how you think, feel, and behave. Mental illnesses can cause moderate to severe impairment in your ability to accomplish life activities, such as taking care of personal hygiene, performing manual tasks such as cooking and cleaning your home, and participating in your professional and social life.

Co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis, on the other hand, refer to the simultaneous presence of mental health disorders and substance use disorders in an individual. It’s a complex condition requiring integrated treatment approaches to address both issues concurrently.

If you struggle with your mental health, you’re not alone. Around 970 million people worldwide live with mental health disorders. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, over 57 million American adults experienced a mental illness in 2021.

Data from the National Alliance on Mental Illness shows that:

  • 19.1% of American adults suffer from anxiety disorders, conditions that cause excessive or irrational worry and fear, leading to irritability, difficulty concentrating, and panic attacks.
  • 8.3% of people have a major depressive disorder, a category of mood disorders characterized by persistent feelings of sadness that lower your energy levels, affect your self-esteem, and can lead to thoughts of self-harm and suicide.
  • 3.6% of adults have post-traumatic stress disorder, which causes hypervigilance, distressing flashbacks, and insomnia and can result in feelings of anxiety or depression.
Understanding Mental Health And Co-occurring Disorders

Data from National Institute for Drug Abuse shows that:

  • Around 7.7 million individuals are struggling with both mental health and substance use disorders simultaneously. However, it’s crucial to note that the presence of one doesn’t necessarily trigger the other, and it can be quite challenging to ascertain which disorder preceded the other.
  • Among the 20.3 million adults with substance use disorders, 37.9% also had mental illnesses.
  • Out of the 42.1 million adults suffering from mental illness, approximately 18.2% are also dealing with substance use disorders.

Our Dual Diagnosis Treatment Programs

Getting mental health treatment is crucial for treating the symptoms of mental health disorders and repairing the impact they have on your life.

Resurgence Behavioral Health offers three main treatment programs for co-occurring disorders: a partial hospitalization program, an intensive outpatient program, and an outpatient program.

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) require you to receive mental health therapy at a treatment facility for 6 to 8 hours a day. Patients can either commute or program at one of our sober livings.. PHPs allow you to participate in different forms of therapy in a safe environment designed to support healing. The program also lets you practice the coping skills you learn during treatment in the real world. People participating in PHPs can maintain close relationships with loved ones and receive support during treatment. PHPs also allow you to keep working part-time and care for dependents such as children while undergoing treatment.

An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a less intensive form of PHP. You’ll reduce your time at the treatment center but continue participating in treatment programs. IOPs reinforce your ability to successfully overcome the mental health triggers you experience daily. They also give you access to ongoing support from therapists and fellow patients in your treatment programs.

An outpatient program allows you to receive mental health support while maintaining independence outside a treatment center. Resurgence Behavioral Health offers outpatient treatment as part of our case management services after you complete a PHP or IOP treatment. Our mental health team monitors your progress during outpatient treatment and uses sessions to reinforce your coping skills. People whose lives aren’t severely affected by co-occurring disorder can also participate in outpatient treatment to find ways of lessening their symptoms.


PHPs, IOPs, and outpatient treatment programs let you engage in different forms of therapies for mental health.

Individual therapy or counseling gives you one-on-one time with an attentive, nonjudgmental mental health professional who’ll listen to your mental health struggles. Therapists help you explore the reasons behind your mental health challenges and equip you with the knowledge to combat the symptoms. During therapy sessions, you’ll analyze the effect of mental illness on your life and find ways to repair the damage and create a life that works for you.

Treatment Modalities And Therapies For Mental Health

Group therapy is another effective co-occurring treatment modality. A therapist supervises group therapy sessions and encourages people experiencing co-occurring challenges to share their experiences. You can learn good coping skills by talking about your problems and listening to how people with similar struggles deal with theirs. Group therapy also lets you develop connections you can rely on whenever you feel overwhelmed or unwell.

Mental health disorders affect your ability to maintain healthy relationships with your loved ones. Family therapy is a form of group therapy that examines how your condition has impacted your loved ones and seeks to repair affected relationships. Family therapy also gives your loved ones tools they can use to support your healing process.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a talk therapy used during individual and group sessions. This form of therapy uncovers the harmful thought patterns contributing to your mental health issues, including negative beliefs you have about yourself and the world. Your therapist will help you replace these negative beliefs with healthier thoughts, leading to better mental health results. CBT is an effective dual-diagnosis treatment tool for dealing with mental health issues accompanying substance use problems.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is another talk therapy used in mental health treatment. DBT teaches you coping mechanisms that can help alleviate the symptoms of your mental illness. The self-regulating techniques you learn during DBT can reduce anxiety, irritability, and thoughts of self-harm.

How it works

Our inpatient treatment center develops individualized treatment plans for each resident outlining the services needed, depending on the severity of their substance use disorder. Mental health care is also provided for co-occurring disorders and can include individual and group therapy sessions or holistic methods, such as art and exercise therapy. We also specialize in trauma-informed care. Because many individuals with substance abuse issues also display symptoms of trauma, we can help uncover the relationship between addiction and traumatic experiences. 

Emotional support from loved ones is vital to maintaining sobriety, which is why we also offer family therapy and educational resources to help family members understand how to support you during inpatient rehab. This can help strengthen the family dynamic and your support system for recovery.
