Psychiatric Hospital with Integrated Chemical Dependency Treatment

The Program
"In Its Own Words"


Self Description:

"Menninger Clinic provides specialty psychiatric hospital care for individuals with difficult to treat behavioral disorders that may be accompanied by substance abuse, addiction, or other co-occuring conditions."

Treatment Philosophy:

"We believe in the inherent value of each individual and their capacity to achieve hope and learn skills to effectively understand and manage their illness."

Approach To Dual Diagnosis:

"We simultaneously treat the addictive diagnosis with the traditional 12 Step abstinence model while addressing the psychiatric diagnosis with traditional bio-psycho-social psychiatric interventions."

Family Program:

"We encourage family members to be involved from the time the patient's admission throughout the course of a patient's weekly family therapy sessions, and attend our 3 day family workshop."

Position On 12 Step Involvement:

"We believe that for the most positive treatment prognosis it is critical that patients participate in the appropriate 12 Step recovery group and mantain abstinence from chemicals and destructive behavior patterns."

Position On Confrontation:

"Is a useful tool when used at the appropriate time by highly skilled clinical professional to meet specific gioals with the appropriate patients."

Additional Characteristics:

"Menninger Clinic has been a world leader in psychiatric and behavioral healthcare since 1925. We offer 6 specialty inpatient programs: Adolescent Treatment Program, Adolescent Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Texas Program, Compass Young Adult Program, Professional in Crisis Program, Hope Program, Eating Disorder Program and Adult Obsessive Compulsive Program. And 3 diagnostic services."
