Few drug treatment centers specialize in treating complex co-occurring disorders. Nationally, research continues to reveal that people with co-occurring disorders need a specialized form of treatment, referred to as integrated services or dual diagnosis treatment.
This Eclipse Program at Springbrook Hospital is designed for those suffering from the co-occurring diagnosis of psychiatric illness and substance abuse problems. This dual diagnosis program combats both the addiction and the psychiatric illness within one program. Springbrook Hospital realizes that combating addiction while dealing with a psychiatric illness presents its own challenges and unique set of problems to overcome. The challenges can be meet with our Eclipse program which is both an inpatient and partial hospitalization program (see our PHP Program page) allowing for individuals have a customized program for their unique situation.

- Acknowledgement of the importance of psychotherapeutic medications, such as antidepressants or anti-anxiety meds, in the treatment of co-occurring disorders
- A supportive approach to therapy that reinforces self-esteem and builds self-confidence instead of confronting the client with negative, aggressive statements
