Elizabeth, Colorado
Dual diagnosis is more common than many people think. The American Medical Association reports that one in three people with mental health issues also has a substance use disorder (SUD).

Some people may experience drug abuse issues before receiving a mental health diagnosis. However, for some, mental illness leads them to substance abuse.

Healing Pines offers a dual diagnosis treatment program that tailors itself to the individual. We believe in treating the person, not the illness. So, at our drug rehab center, you’ll find substance abuse and mental health treatment that cater to the needs of yourself or those of a loved one.

So, What Is a Dual Diagnosis?

A dual diagnosis is when someone has both a substance use disorder and a mental health condition. A person with a dual diagnosis suffers from a mental and behavioral condition at the same time. The co-occurring disorders may involve any combination of one or more mental disorders and a substance use disorder.

Many people diagnosed with a substance use disorder related to drugs or alcohol also have a co-occurring mental health disorder. When someone has a dual diagnosis, they need an integrated treatment plan. This treatment plan should address both conditions as related concerns to prevent relapse.

Healing Pines Recovery offers the best dual diagnosis treatment for mental and behavioral health in Colorado. Our world-class addiction treatment program is designed to assist people with co-occurring disorders. We aim to help our patients achieve long-lasting recovery and lead healthier, more fruitful lives.

Reasons Why Co-Occurring Disorders Must Be Diagnosed and Treated at the Same Time

Dual diagnosis can be a challenging issue to address. For long-term recovery to be achieved, substance use and mental health conditions should be treated at the same time. According to studies and research, only a small percentage of persons with dual diagnoses receive treatment for both conditions.

When only one of the illnesses is identified and treated, the likelihood of relapsing is higher. Here are some of the reasons why co-occurring disorders must be diagnosed and treated at the same time:

Paying for Treatment

Don't Let Anything Stop You From Getting Help.

We work with most major commercial insurance plans which can help cover up to 100% of the costs associated with treatment.

The leadership and staff were committed to my success.

Paul is a man of integrity which flows through his team. I have been to other recovery programs and HPR stands far above them all. The small group structure offers a more intimate and personalized experience. This was so much more beneficial to my recovery than facilities preaching a "one-size-fits-all" solution to larger and fragmented groups. It was like having personal and knowledgeable therapists dedicated to me for a full month! They went out of their way to understand the root of my challenges and construct a path for improvement that is unique and relatable to me. This was a huge benefit!

It saved my life, in every sense.

I spent a month at Healing Pines Recovery. The actual location itself is unreal. A beautiful cabin lodge, with gorgeous scenery. The rooms are large, queen beds, very comfortable! Great bathrooms with great showers! There is a pool table, slam jam, (Christine! 😉 frisbee golf, and daily access to a nearby gym. The property also has a pickle ball court that was used daily, Zoey the counselor beat us men constantly!

Clay M

My experience with Healing Pines Recovery has been wonderful.

My husband was their client, and they helped him be able to help himself. He is doing amazing! I think the combination of counseling, physical labor, meditation, AA, and just the beauty of the place itself all had a very positive impact on him. They really cared about him, and that did not stop just because he came home. Also they have counseling for the families and it has really helped me a lot. Heather is awesome! I thank God that we had them in our lives when we were most vulnerable.

Susan M

We wanted to share our gratitude to the staff.

Our son was under the care of Healing Pines recently and we wanted to share our gratitude to the staff. There were many challenges in his pursuing treatment, and thankfully Paul and Heather C helped us navigate all of them skillfully with patience and compassion.

You'll get your life back!

Healing Pines Recovery is/was instrumental in setting me up for long term success in my recovery journey. I've been to treatment centers in the past and HPR is nothing like anything I've attended before. They're very small, intimate, and hands-on approach to recovery was exactly what I was looking for when seeking treatment. I knew that a large, one size fits all program like those offered by many other treatment centers in Colorado wouldn't provide me with the help I desperately needed. Paul and his Team are incredible and I would highly recommend HPR to anyone who needs help starting their recovery journey. Big shout out to James for all of his guidance during my time at HPR. His grace, knowledge, understanding, and direction were/are key to my continued success in recovery. One HUGE piece of the puzzle I love is the after care I've received from HPR... I am in constant contact with Paul, James, and many other staff members through the their alumni programs and it has helped me so much with life after HPR. This program was truly a miracle in my life and I know it will be for many other men struggling with addiction and/or alcoholism. You'll get your life back!

This is truly a great recovery facility.

My learning experience here was something I’ll take with me throughout my whole life. The staff here will always be a part of my family and I am beyond thankful for everything they have done and continue to do for my well-being.

Gunnar P

I can't speak more highly of Healing Pines Recovery & Addiction Center.

It is located in a beautiful Colorado location with lots of outdoor activities and fresh air. They have a very knowledgeable and professional staff that goes above and beyond to meet your needs.

Riley K

I couldn’t have been at a more amazing place to begin this journey.

Seriously an amazing place. Everything from how beautiful the house and the property it sits on down to every person staffed there was nothing less than perfect. More than highly recommended in every sense. If you’re reading this and trying to find the right place for treatment and recovery I would absolutely look no further. Everyone’s recovery is different and we all need a comfortable place with people we can trust through this battle, healing pines understood that everyone’s path is different and they 100% cater to that. I couldn’t have been any luckier with finding Healing Pines. I won’t go any deeper and start to thank everyone there individually, But I want to express my gratitude to everyone on the HEALING PINES TEAM. Without you all, my path in sobriety would not look anywhere near the way it looks today. Seriously from the bottom of my heart thank you!

The Symptoms

Dual Diagnosis Symptoms

Diagnosing co-occurring conditions can be challenging because their symptoms frequently overlap. Additionally, the symptoms might change over time and range in severity.

Here are some signs to watch out for in people who may have a dual diagnosis:

People who qualify for a dual diagnosis may present a variety of symptoms based on the mental health conditions present. For example, people struggling with bipolar disorder or personality disorders will have different symptoms compared to someone with chronic depression.

It is essential to observe a person’s behavior overall. Then, the treatment professionals can better identify specific behavioral and mental health concerns.

What To Expect

What to Expect at Healing Pines
