Dual Diagnosis

We believe in a team approach at Tellurian. Each of our patients has a treatment team consisting of Medical and Clinical professionals, working together to provide exactly what each needs to succeed. Addiction and mental illness are medical conditions that need to be treated medically and with counseling. It’s this combination of treatment that sets us apart from other treatment facilities, we call this approach Dual Diagnosis.

Many patients struggling with substance use disorders have accompanying mental health or behavioral health issues, such as depression, anxiety disorders, or post-traumatic stress disorders. To support these patients and most effectively address their illness, mental health counseling is integrated into the treatment regimen. The Tellurian Medical Director, a specialist in addiction medicine and member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), provides medical oversight, including health screens and diagnosis of underlying health issues. Psychiatric care is provided as appropriate or recommended, assuring that any co-occurring mental health issues are identified and treated along with the substance use disorder.

Our treatment team delivers care in a compassionate environment, where each patient is shown respect on every level. Free from stigma, free from assumption, each patient is treated right where they are in their recovery journey.



Treatment Programs


Every person’s journey is unique which is why we meet each of our patients where they are at. This means that our treatment plans are not ‘one size fits all’, but are tailored to each individual patient so they are able to achieve greater success.

The process of treatment begins with a phone call by you, an affected family member or loved one, requesting an assessment. Tellurian does not automatically assume a diagnosis of alcoholism, addiction or other problems, without first conducting an assessment and evaluation by one of the center’s highly trained and certified staff.
When you call, you will speak with an Admissions Counselor who will guide you through a brief, confidential telephone assessment, followed by an appointment with a counselor. Once the assessment is completed, and if treatment is recommended, the counselor will determine the most appropriate level of care based on the individual needs of the patient.
