Addressing the Core of Your Addiction

What if you were told it’s not your fault you have an addiction? That, at its core, your addiction is driven by underlying mental health issues — and since you haven’t been given the proper tools to address these issues, you turned to drugs or alcohol or food. 


At Avive la Vie, we believe that substance abuse isn’t the real problem — it’s the symptom of a deeper issue. For this reason, we offer dual diagnosis care to our clients. We help you identify any anxiety, depression, trauma, or mental health disorders that you’re struggling with; and give you the tools to create a new default response.


We help you address these mental health issues at a nervous system level, meaning we take a much more hands-on approach than traditional talk therapy alone.  


We also realize that you may already know that you struggle with a mental health condition. In this case, you may have built up an identity around this diagnosis, feeling like it holds some weight in who you are. 


We see mental health issues, and addiction, as a pattern that can be changed — not as a life sentence. With the right skills, you can change your behavior for good and take back your life.

Customized Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Avive la Vie offers a holistic and customized special treatment program for clients with dual diagnosis. Our integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders helps those who suffer from both a substance abuse addiction and a mental health disorder.

Until the 1990s, mental health disorders such as anxiety attacks, depression, bipolar disorder, and ADHD were treated separately from addiction, and treatment for mental illness could not start until the individual got clean and sober. With new innovative treatment developments, clinicians who specialize in addiction treatment can now get training in the treatment of co-occurring mental health disorders. It is important to choose a dual diagnosis treatment center that has professionals adept in treating mental health and substance abuse.

Below is a list of the mental health disorders we are equipped and incredibly effective in treating:

What’s Different About Our Dual Diagnosis Program?

Many rehab centers claim to offer dual diagnosis treatment. However, the key to an effective dual diagnosis approach is the development of an individualized treatment plan right from the start that addresses all underlying issues that’s contributing to your addiction.


At Avive la Vie, we get to know you and your unique situation before you are admitted to our residential program. We get clear on co-occurring challenges such as anxiety, depression, or trauma, and design a program approach that deals with these underlying mental health issues from the beginning.


One of our highest values is customization, and our very comprehensive assessment allows us to serve you best. At our holistic therapy program, we consider your whole being; every part of your personal and medical history is considered to design your program.

Create Long-Lasting Change by Addressing All of Your Issues

Co-occurring disorders with substance use disorder is very common. According to SAMHSA’s 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 41.2% of those diagnosed with addiction also had a diagnosis of a mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder within the past year.


In many cases, those who deal with substance abuse also develop a mental health illness like anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorder. This can be brought on by the chemical and neurological imbalances caused by substance abuse, as well as the destructive mental and emotional processes that occur from drugs and alcohol. In other instances, addictions develop to try and cope with existing mental illnesses like anxiety, panic disorder, major depression, eating disorders, and personality disorders.


Regardless of how it formed, a person struggling with multiple diagnoses requires specialized treatment plans in a dual diagnosis program. Research shows that when underlying mental health conditions are left untreated, the relapse risk is much higher.

Clients who seek treatment for addiction and mental illness may be diagnosed with:

  • Mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety disorders such as panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, phobias and generalized anxiety disorder
  • Eating disorders like bulimia, anorexia, overeating, binge eating disorder, and disordered eating (OSFED)
  • Behavioral disorders: Adult Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD)

When appropriate, we encourage client and family involvement and address the needs of both clients and their family members.

We realize that recovery occurs over months and sometimes even years. Our aftercare program is there to provide you with the long-term guidance and support needed to reintegrate back into your life.
