Dual Diagnosis Treatment in Florida

According to the latest medical research, at least 70 percent of people with substance use disorder are also battling an additional psychiatric disorder. In some cases, psychiatric issues can surface after years of severe dependency. In other cases, people self-medicate to escape from mental illness. If left undiagnosed and untreated, mental illnesses can really de-rail the efficacy of addiction treatment.

Synergy Group has become widely renown for achieving great outcomes in the treatment of individuals who are struggling with a co-occurring disorder in addition to a chemical dependency. Part of the reason is that our very intimate setting accommodates a maximum of five clients at a time and the high staff to client ratio allows us to closely monitor how each client is responding to the various therapeutic processes and adjust their regimen accordingly.

  • Eating Disorders
  • Depression
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Trauma (and PTSD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia & personality disorders
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
