Providing Trusted, Evidence-Based
Treatment for Three Decades and Counting

If you or a loved one is experiencing addiction, we’re here to help.

The terms “co-occurring disorders” and “dual-diagnosis” describe the same condition in which a person is affected by both chemical dependency and an emotional or psychiatric illness. These terms (co-occurring and dually diagnosed) are often used interchangeably with the terms “co-morbidity”, “concurrent disorders”, “co-morbid disorders”, and “dual disorder”. Individuals who experience a dual diagnosis often face a wide range of psychosocial issues and may experience more than two interacting illnesses.

The treatment program at Michael’s House is nationally recognized for integrative and evidence based methods that have produced proven results for individuals with addiction and mental health disorders. We are one of very few facilities that is prepared to deal effectively with co-occurring disorders.
