The dual diagnosis treatment program at Creative Care finds its core in gently unearthing the traumatic experiences that comprise the roots of co-occurring substance use disorders, integrating the impact of these historical traumas, understanding intricate interpersonal dynamics, and identifying mental health difficulties. Our dedicated and fully equipped staff views each client as an individual with a unique history, and we strive to honor that individuality throughout the recovery process, from detox to aftercare. It is our mission to ensure that all who suffer from co-occurring substance use disorders receive the opportunity to be heard, be nurtured, and be healed.
