Dual Diagnosis: What is it?
ECHN is proud to announce the opening of a new Inpatient Dual Diagnosis Unit. The unit is intended to assist persons struggling with behavioral health disorders and substance use disorders. Our goal is to help our patients stabilize and connect with recovery supports in the communities where they live. Recovery looks different for different people, and we plan to offer hope, support, and connections to help our patients engage in recovery. We will offer medication assisted treatment for various conditions and utilize evidence-based practices from a multidisciplinary treatment team. Please join our panel of those involved in creating the unit to learn more about this new program:
