Dual Diagnosis Mental Health Disorders

Because we know that there are valid reasons for engaging in numbing and unhealthy coping behaviors, Magnolia Creek is dually licensed to treat eating disorders as well as mental health disorders which is called dual diagnosis mental health treatment. We treat a multitude of co-occurring disorders, including depressive disorders, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and personality disorders.
One of the most beautiful and powerful aspects of our community is that we help everyone realize they aren’t alone. We also teach our clients to challenge shame they have carried, often for years, believing there is something inherently wrong with them. While engaging in treatment and interacting with our community, each client learns that although they may employ different coping behaviors, the reasons they feel the need to cope, change their feelings, and find some relief are often very similar.

What We Treat

At Magnolia Creek, we treat a variety of secondary co-occurring mental health disorders, including:

How We Treat

Through individual therapy as well as group therapy, we help individuals identify new ways to cope. We also help clients challenge cognitive distortions that have prevented them from realizing their value. In addition, we help clients process experiences that may have negatively contributed to the way they view the world and themselves. Lastly, we help clients manage any neurochemical imbalances using psychiatric medication if desired.

Family therapy is also a part of treatment, as we believe it’s vital for each woman to have a healthy support system. We understand that clients define family in many ways, so we work collaboratively with each client to identify who is part of their support system.
Additionally, we understand the importance of what we put into our bodies and how it has a direct impact on our physical and emotional health, so each client meets weekly with a dietician to develop an individualized meal plan.
