Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Holistic, Non 12-Step Addiction Treatment Center in Hawaii
Customized Dual Diagnosis Treatment
The Exclusive Hawaii offers a holistic and customized special treatment program for clients with dual diagnosis. Our integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders helps those who suffer from both a substance abuse addiction and a mental health disorder.
Until the 1990s, mental health disorders such as anxiety attacks, depression, bipolar disorder, and ADHD were treated separately from addiction, and treatment for mental illness could not start until the individual got clean and sober. With new innovative treatment developments, clinicians who specialize in addiction treatment can now get training in the treatment of co-occurring mental health disorders. It is important to choose a treatment program that has professionals adept in treating mental health and substance abuse.
Below is a list of the mental health disorders we are equipped and incredibly effective in treating:

What’s Different About Our Dual Diagnosis Program?
Many rehab centers claim to offer dual diagnosis treatment, however, the key to an effective dual diagnosis approach is the development of an individualized treatment plan right from the start that addresses all underlying issues that’s contributing to your addiction. At The Exclusive Hawaii, we get to know you and your unique situation before you are admitted to our residential program. We get clear on co-occurring challenges such as anxiety, depression, or trauma, and design a program approach that deals with these underlying mental-emotional issues from the beginning. One of our highest values is customization, and our very comprehensive assessment allows us to serve you best. At our holistic program, we consider your whole being; every part of your personal and medical history is considered to design your program.

Create Long-Lasting Change by Addressing All of Your Issues
Co-occurring disorders with substance use disorder is very common. According to SAMHSA’s 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 41.2% of those diagnosed with addiction also had a diagnosis of a mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder within the past year. In many cases, those who deal with substance abuse also develop a mental health illness like anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorder. This can be brought on by the chemical and neurological imbalances caused by substance abuse, as well as the destructive mental and emotional processes that occur from drug and alcohol abuse. In other instances, addictions develop to try and cope with existing mental illnesses like anxiety, panic disorder, major depression, eating disorders, and personality disorders. Regardless of how it formed, a person struggling with multiple diagnoses requires specialized care in a dual diagnosis program. Research shows that when underlying mental health conditions are left untreated, the relapse risk is much higher.
Clients who seek treatment for addiction and mental illness may be diagnosed with:
- Mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder
- Anxiety disorders such as panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, phobias and generalized anxiety disorder
- Eating disorders like bulimia, anorexia, overeating, binge eating disorder, and disordered eating (OSFED)
- Behavioral disorders: Adult Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD)
