Dual Diagnosis

Addressing Underlying Issues: The Landon Institute provides personalized plans that address all underlying issues fueling the patient’s addiction. Too often, drug and/or alcohol abuse has been in response to unrecognized or poorly managed psychiatric or emotional disorders. In some cases it might be a trauma, undiagnosed or undertreated ADHD, an anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, and/or other psychological issues. Our whole-recovery approach tackles these co-occuring, or dual, conditions from the start.

What it's For: Dual Diagnosis addresses mental health issues that most often spur drug and/or alcohol use. Trauma, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, ADHD, and compulsive disorders are common risk factors for relapse. At the Landon Institute we strongly believe these disorders in mental health need to be addressed during rehabilitation, as well as after to ensure continued success.


Trauma, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, ADHD, and compulsive disorders are common risk factors for relapse.

How it Works: Dual Diagnosis Treatment addresses not only the drug and/or alcohol abuse, but the underlying psychiatric diagnosis as well. The goal of dual diagnosis treatment is to help the patient develop a clear plan for the future, and when needed, refer them to clinicians in their hometown to continue treatment after rehabilitation at the Landon Institute in order to prevent the desire to relapse due to the need to self-medicate.

What to Expect: Beginning treatment at the Landon Institute, our Board Certified Physicians and Psychiatrists will work alongside each other to assess the patient's needs and develop a comprehensive, tailored plan that will lead to a successful rehabilitation experience.
