Our Dual Diagnosis Curriculum,
Embracing Change: Recovery for Life
Exclusive to Our Facilities
We developed our dual diagnosis (co-occurring mental health disorders) curriculum for use at our facilities using research-based clinical practices in order to provide clients with effective addiction therapy developed in consideration of industry best practices. In order to create this effective, research-based curriculum, we collaborated with addiction industry consultants with 30+ years of experience.
Among dual diagnosis treatment centers, American Addiction Centers’ addiction recovery curriculum Embracing Change: Recovery for Life is a comprehensive, quality product and a top strength of our treatment facilities. Our dual diagnosis curriculum focuses on engaging our clients, from the content and imagery to the colors and interactive exercises. Presented as a series of workbooks that follow alongside the dual diagnosis treatment process, our curriculum was designed with interactive and informative lessons, that appeal to all learning styles.
Our dual diagnosis curriculum was designed to appeal to many different learning styles with information to which anyone can relate.
Throughout treatment, clients participate in recovery-focused didactic and experiential groups and have time to complete their workbooks together or independently. For many clients their workbooks are tangible and powerful indicators of progress and inspiration. For the rest of their lives they can revisit these pages for further reflection and growth.
Dual Diagnosis Curriculum
Why is a 90-Day Program better than the typical 30-day program?
- Allows for the identification and treatment of co-occurring disorders.
- Lets new habits take root, increasing the probability of lifelong sobriety.
- Better chance at employment post-treatment.
Why is the curriculum called Embracing Change: Recovery for Life?
Great question! A major component of our treatment philosophy derives from Motivational Interviewing (MI). The overall “spirit” of MI states that instead of “forcing” people to change, we should focus on building their intrinsic value of change and help them “nudge” towards new behaviors. Since experience and research demonstrates that change can be scary, we want to help people embrace it at a pace that is healthy for them. Furthermore, we want these pro-recovery changes to be sustainable and long-term, hence the subtitle.
How often are the workbooks updated?
At minimum, they are updated annually to remain current with research and best practices for dual diagnosis treatment centers.
