Evidence-based dual diagnosis treatment expands nationally.

Individuals with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders have new opportunities for dual diagnosis treatment and recovery at Rogers Behavioral Health locations throughout Wisconsin, Chicago, Nashville, and Tampa.

"More than 17.5 million Americans are living with a serious mental illness, and of them, 4 million also have addiction involving alcohol, opioids, and other drugs," says Dr. Michael Miller, director of addiction program development and training, Rogers Behavioral Health.

"It's crucial we understand how underlying mental health issues contribute to substance use disorder, how substance use impacts mental health conditions, and that we treat them in an integrated manner."

Rogers' dual programs incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), twelve step facilitation (TSF) therapy, and motivational enhancement therapy (MET) in specialized outpatient formats--allowing patients to receive necessary treatment while maintaining their everyday lives.

In addition to group and individual therapy, family therapy is a key component of dual programming.

"In conjunction with patients receiving the right treatment, connections between people are an important part of the solution to addiction," explains Dr. Miller. "Being connected to family members, friends, and others is critical in recovery, and we should never forget that."

Free screenings are available as a first step in the admissions process at 800767-4411 or

Rogers also offers treatment for adults, adolescents, and children with depression and mood disorders, OCD and anxiety, eating disorders, PTSD, and mental health disorders in youth on the autism spectrum.
