Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

  • Gershon Weiss
    Gershon WeissClinical Director LPC, LCADC
    Gershon has been managing substance use disorder treatment programs for over 25 years. He has deep experience in integrating treatment of co-occurring disorders, trauma, gender-specific issues and anger management into drug and alcohol treatment. Gershon has provided clinical leadership in residential, outpatient and prevention programs. He directed a residential mother/child program for 7 years as well as an IOP for substance use disorders in an outpatient psychiatric setting for 7 years. Gershon’s philosophy of treatment is a person-centered collaboration between client and program, a therapeutic alliance that promotes personal responsibility in the client and emotional support by the program. Clients are viewed as individuals with their own strengths who may need to negotiate developmental challenges or social skill deficits in order to meet their own goals for a satisfying life. Gershon believes in being personally available to patients and their approved collaterals.
