Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders TreatmentThese 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.
Medical DetoxificationDrugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Meet the Staff
- Ashley Adams, MA, MFTI Assistant Clinical DirectorMs. Adams has been working in addiction treatment and recovery for 4 years and started at Practical Recovery before they opened Reunion in 2011. She holds a master’s degree from Alliant International University in Marriage and Family Therapy. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree from San Diego State University in Sociology and Psychology. For Ashley, the most profound aspect of addiction treatment is focusing on the dynamics of family and couple relationships. During her first traineeship she worked with individuals who experienced severe trauma, including sexual assault and domestic violence. This was a powerful training period for Ashley, where she learned a great deal about resiliency. In addition to her work in substance abuse treatment and trauma, she also has a strong interest in eating disorders, including awareness and prevention. She interned at an eating disorders program in San Diego for two years and was a facilitator for ANAD (Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders). She has also done clinical work and cultural competency trainings abroad and loves to travel any chance she gets. Ashley has completed all 3,000 pre-licensing hours and is currently awaiting approval to take the MFT licensing exam.
