A STEP TOWARDS A COMPREHENSIVE INTEGRATION OF TREATMENT
On May 18th 2011, Eagleville Hospital reached a new milestone in its 100 years of history.
The opening of the 16 bed Acute Dual Diagnosis Unit represents an important answer to the increasing demands of our community to address the needs of adults with high level co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse disorders. The overall concept of this unit is to provide integrated treatment, which attends to both disorders as primary, offering a comprehensive system of care. This approach builds on Eagleville Hospital expertise in treating substance abuse disorders as a residential rehab facility with multiple levels of care, while taking advantage of its emphasis on psychiatric treatment.
Treating an acute episode within an uninterrupted continuum of care by the same psychiatric treatment team will result in a more effective and efficient care, from the locked unit acute setting to the more open rehab setting. Peer Engagement Specialists are part of our treatment team, assisting consumers in identifying potential community supports and will remain available to the consumers as they return to the community.
Trauma Theory contributed to the design of the service, exemplified in a Trauma–informed approach to screening and assessment, as well as the safe and welcoming setting of the unit, ensuring physical as well as emotional safety.
On behalf of the team of Eagleville hospital we thank Montgomery County and the community for their strong support and their assistance in making this concept a reality.
