At Sovereign Health of Texas, dual diagnosis treatment is provided by a multidisciplinary team of experienced professionals. They offer expert, compassionate care to our dual diagnosis patients.
We realize that each patient is a unique individual requiring a treatment approach tailored to their specific needs. Our medical and nonmedical professionals coordinate their services in order to provide each patient with the best, most effective treatment experience. Our team members include:
- Medical doctors: When a patient begins treatment, one of our board-certified physicians conducts a comprehensive medical examination to assess their physical condition. The doctors will treat any conditions present, prescribing medication when necessary. If a patient requires medically assisted detox our doctors will monitor and treat any uncomfortable or dangerous withdrawal side effects.
- Psychiatrists: Patients also receive comprehensive psychiatric evaluations. Our psychiatrists will determine what conditions are present and, in conjunction with our physicians, administer appropriate psychiatric medications when indicated.
- Licensed nurses: Nurses monitor patients on a continuous basis. They communicate directly with the attending physicians and provide specific care based on their instructions.
- Psychologists: Psychologists work with patients to provide an accurate diagnosis of any psychological conditions present. This diagnosis helps shape the treatment plan the team will use in order to best serve each patient’s needs.
- Psychotherapists: Psychotherapy is an integral part of dual diagnosis treatment. Our psychotherapists have a variety of specialties. They conduct individual, group and family therapy sessions. We strive to match patients with the psychotherapist that best suits their unique needs and can provide the most effective treatment.
- Counselors: Counselors work with patients who are battling addiction. They help patients gain insight into the nature of addiction and provide information about how they can live a life free of drugs.
- Case managers: Good communication is a vital part of successful treatment. Case managers facilitate communication between our patients and the treatment team members.
- Patient advocates: Patient advocates also facilitate communication between patients and members of the treatment team. Additionally, they are a channel of communication between patients and their families. Patient advocates give patients the opportunity to voice their needs and concerns so that they may focus on their recovery.
- Registered dieticians: Proper nutrition helps patients regain and maintain their health. Dieticians assess each of our patients’ histories, current conditions, medications, food preferences, lifestyle habits and other factors to help them develop a healthy diet suited to their individual needs.
- House managers: House managers provide supervision at our residential facility. They work closely with patients to coordinate transportation, individual treatment schedules, meals and other day-to-day needs.
