Group Treatment at Gateway Aurora

To meet the unique needs of individuals struggling with addiction as well as untreated anxiety, anger or trauma-related concerns, Gateway Alcohol & Drug Treatment Center in Aurora offers an Adult Co-Occurring/Dual-Diagnosis Residential Treatment Program (Co-Ed) wherein both concerns may be addressed at the same time by one collaborative team.

Research supports integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis—and decreases the odds for relapse. Through this effective treatment program, individuals with co-occurring disorders can learn not only how mental illness impacts their lives, but how to:

  • Manage their condition with a healthy lifestyle and prescribed medications.
  • Regulate their emotions using proven techniques like mindfulness.
  • Nurture healthy relationships by improving communication and coping skills.

What is a Co-Occurring Disorder/Dual Diagnosis?

Often times people abuse alcohol or drugs in an attempt to escape their distressing thoughts and painful feelings created by an underlying mental health concern. In fact, it’s more common than not for people with a substance abuse problem to also have a mental health issue, such as depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety. When someone has both issues it is referred to as a co-occurring disorder. For lasting recovery, it’s extremely important for people with co-occurring disorders to take the necessary measures to manage both concerns. That’s because untreated mental health problems increase the likelihood for substance relapse.
