The Importance Of Recovering Within Dual Diagnosis Centers

Malibu 7/20/2010 07:55 AM GMT (TransWorldNews)

[Malibu, CA] - Sunset Malibu, an exclusive dual diagnosis treatment center on the beautiful Malibu coast, has long been a transformational force in the field of dual diagnosis therapy and recovery. Now, Sunset is announcing its redoubled efforts in helping clients overcome the ravages of drug addiction and mental health disorders.

Drug abuse and mental disorders are unique diseases. By the same token, recovery within dual diagnosis treatment programs must have a unique process. The only effective
dual diagnosis centers are those which provide specially designed recovery programs to their clients. In the end, there's simply no other way to promote meaningful and lasting wellness.

Those considerations, in turn, are at the heart of Sunset Malibu's treatment philosophy.

With its world-class caregivers and elegant accommodations, Sunset Malibu is an unparalleled recovery destination. The center has always catered to upscale clients from every corner of the globe. Now Sunset is renewing its commitment to its core values, with the goal of delivering life-changing care to individuals who seek it. At Sunset Malibu, the client always comes first.

"Dual diagnosis centers are fundamentally distinct from drug addiction centers," said Sunset Malibu's Program Director. "That's why our exclusive dual diagnosis centers are specially designed to help clients meet the challenges of the drug and mental health recovery process. We believe that our long record of success proves the merits of our methods."

Unfortunately, that emphasis on targeted and nuanced care is precisely what sets Sunset apart from its competitors.

It's easy for dual diagnosis centers to pay lip service to the importance of specialized treatment. It's harder for those dual diagnosis centers to live up to their own standards. The truth is that many of the most high-priced dual diagnosis centers in California provide the same generic program to all victims. Unsurprisingly, these institutions routinely fail to help clients achieve sustainable sobriety and recovery.

Under the circumstances, argues Sunset's Clinical Team, those shortcomings are inexcusable.

"The stakes in the fight against addiction and mental health disorders are enormous," Sunset Malibu's Program Director said. "At Sunset Malibu, we're keenly aware of our responsibility, and we do everything in our power to repay the faith our clients invest in us. To do anything less would be to breach our professional and ethical obligations."

It's no secret that drug abuse and mental health disorders ruin lives. What might not be so obvious, though, is that dual diagnosis centers really can help to solve the problem. The experts at Sunset Malibu have proven themselves capable of guiding clients towards healthier and happier futures. As those clients have learned firsthand, no outcome could ever be more desirable than that one.
