Complex challenges face those living with both mental disorders and substance abuse. Often drug abuse induces psychiatric disorders, therefore making diagnosis between acute mental illness and substance abuse disorder difficult.

People with dual diagnosis disorder face increased rates of relapse, hospitalization, homelessness, HIV and Hepatitis C infection in contrast to people with mental or substance use disorders alone. It is estimated 40% to 60% of adults with a serious and persistent mental illness experience a substance use disorder in their lifetime.

Historically mental health disorders and substance use issues were treated separately. Mountain Peak recovery seeks to overcome this insufficient treatment model with the launch of services that focus on each disorder simultaneously, establishing a basis for abstinence within addiction recovery center programming.

Recovery should be viewed like a marathon rather than a sprint; diagnosis should not be forced in the lack of sobriety. Diagnosis requires an adequate duration of sobriety that can allow substance abuse withdrawal indicators to dissipate, this can take up to a year.

The approach of Mountain Peak Recovery residential treatment involves 24hr monitoring to help establish abstinence in a safe welcoming environment. Time and attention can be committed to learning new coping abilities and a stronger sense of self worth. This residential community is ideal for clients who desire to restore emotional and psychiatric health through long term treatment.

Mountain Peak Recovery has the (JCAHO) Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations certification. Awarded the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval, Mountain Peak Recovery adheres to all policies and procedures required.
