Restoring Wounded Minds & Broken Lives

Persons with co-occurring conditions, also known as dual diagnosis (serious mental illness combined with addictive substance use) often find themselves in a state of personal disintegration, unable to function adequately in any of the major areas of life – family, school, work or personal relationships. CCI has designed a comprehensive, adaptive treatment program that can be shaped to the unique realities of each case. From initial intervention and diagnosis to the development of individual treatment programs, CCI is well prepared to handle the most demanding cases. We have licensed psychiatrists and clinicians at our treatment facilities at all times, and a depth of professional experience with all current, evidence-based therapies. We work closely with families and loved ones in all phases, helping create a healthier, more resilient home environment for everyone. CCI has prepared a large menu of interrelated therapies and strategies to provide wrap-around treatment customized for each client. From in- depth, focused therapeutic models such as Cognitive-Behavioral and Dialectic Behavioral Therapies to creative and recreational adjunct programs, we always consider the whole person. We create patterns of synergy that can more effectively treat each client. Shown here are just some of the choices you can consider as part of your recovery plan.

Counseling the Family

A client’s family and other loved ones should be part, if at all possible, of the treatment plan. They are often in need of counseling and therapy themselves. We address each of these realities in an inclusive, intentional way.

  • Teaching Effective Communication Skills
  • Establishing Healthy Relationship Boundaries
  • Unlearning Dysfunctional Habits
  • Breaking the Cycle of Co-Dependency and enabling
  • Creating New Patterns of Self-Reliance and Trust

Training to Live Independently or Cooperatively

Persons whose lives have become seriously dysfunctional often need to learn or re-learn the basic life skills. This not only establishes basic competencies, but helps them rebuild a positive self-concept.

  • Housekeeping Skills
  • Organizing, Planning and Time Management
  • Nutrition and Diet
  • Meal Planning and Preparation
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Household Financial Planning
  • Personal Medication Self-Management

Charting Vocational and Educational Paths

A difficult element of restoring a client’s life is charting a path back to the “real world,” to whatever extent that is realistic. This helps the client overcome their fear of failing and being rejected and lays a solid foundation for re-integration into life.

  • Employment Workshops
  • Exploring Education and Training Options
  • Preparing and Coaching for Job Interviews
  • Motivational Interviewing
