Discover recovery from a leading substance abuse treatment center in California when you trust Morningside.

Our dual-diagnosis treatment center programs offer a variety of options for individuals suffering from alcoholism, drug addiction, mood disorders, and mental illness. Our professional therapists adapt their skills to the specific needs of the client, taking into account the client's culture, values, and patterns of relating to others. All clients work with a primary therapist, an alliance built on evidence-based thinking, which means picking the best clinical option available for a given client in a given context based on the best current information. For instance, a client who prefers a spiritual approach can work with a 12-step therapist. It's all about maintaining a supportive environment and providing individual, group, experiential, and adventure therapies that work through our drug treatment centers. Some specific therapies include: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), motivational enhancement therapy, drama therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TFCBT), Morningside Adventure Therapy (MAP), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) – just to name a few. Utilizing this multi-disciplinary approach offers each client the opportunity to uncover the underlying issues related to their own addiction and/or mental health problems.

Recovery Programs: Addictions & Mental Health
Families, Women, Men, Students & Execs

Morningside Recovery healthcare and rehab programs include family recovery, treatment programs for women and men, and highly personalized programs for students and executive professionals of all ages. Each drug addiction treatment program starts with a full clinical assessment and the overview of each client's responsibility for their own subsequent recovery -- for the individual with the addiction is both the center of dysfunction and the solution to it. Families can attend our family workshops to learn about their own roles and dynamics. In every program Morningside professionals identify roles & responsibilities, many based on fear, guilt or shame, in order to educate, support, and nurture clients as they repair past hurts in order to set the stage for future growth. In improving self-esteem, establishing a renewed sense-of-purpose while outlining a sense of community and belonging, treatment at Morningside breaks the cycles of dysfunctional behavior. Clients can now allow purpose and participation into their lives for school, work, family and rebuilt relationships. A sustainable lifestyle of recovery culminates in the client's ability to manage a new emotional, mental and physical serenity. Individualized recovery program tracks are currently available for Families, Women, Men, Students, Execs, LGBTQ, Adopted family members, COEDs, for healthy living, and in our Bring Your Pet to Treatment program.

Dual Diagnosis & Mental Health Therapy: Co-occurring Disorders , Addiction & Comorbidity — Understanding Treatments for Dual Addictions

Unlike other drug and alcohol treatment centers that merely post the latest dual-diagnosis phrases on their websites, Morningside truly specializes in co-occurring/co-morbid addictions with behavioral disorders. A co-occurring disorder refers to the presence of both a mental illness and a substance-use disorder. Research has demonstrated that 50 percent of all individuals diagnosed with a mental illness also have a substance abuse problem. More importantly, those suffering from co-occurring disorders (also known as COD) are treated for all conditions simultaneously at Morningside. We offer both individual and group support, education, and family support during recovery. Helping a client go through assessment on to early recovery and then to achieve mental balance requires care, understanding, skill, and compassion. At Morningside, our clinicians incorporate all of these skills along with the latest evidence-based treatment approaches.

Our essential understanding of addiction is that it is broken or impaired choosing. An addicted brain has been altered in such a way that the drug has taken on psychological meaning at survival level, thereby making for the experience of staying high or supplied with drugs as the solution to any life problem. The threat of the loss of the drug is experienced as a kind of "psychological death" that the individual will do nearly anything to avoid. In turn, the addicted person is unable to make safe and sane choices until substance abstinence and recovery begin seriously. Click this link for more about dual-addiction treatment.
