The psychological evaluation helps our staff members determine whether or not any underlying mental health conditions are present. At Pine Tree Recovery Center, we offer dual diagnosis treatment services for men and women who are suffering at the hands of addiction and mental illness. We treat a wide range of mental health conditions, from depression and anxiety (which are exceedingly common) to bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and personality disorders. Our on-site psychiatrists conduct in-depth evaluations if a client has a history of mental illness or if he or she has been presenting symptoms of mental illness. If deemed necessary, the psychiatrists prescribe non-narcotic medications to help alleviate mental health symptoms. In some instances, brain functioning normalizes within the first several months of sobriety. In other cases, antipsychotic medications are necessary longer term. Again, this depends on the individual and his or her unique needs and requirements.

A clinical and medical assessment is a necessary first step on every recovery journey. Our team of experienced and compassionate professionals work together to ensure that the level of clinical care we provide is truly unmatched. In order for addiction treatment to be successful long-term, medical, emotional, physical and psychological issues must be addressed simultaneously. Our program of recovery is integrated, meaning that all existing conditions are effectively tackled. Our team is made up of a wide array of experienced, compassionate and dedicated professionals, from licensed therapists and psychiatrists to case managers and prescribing physicians. At Pine Tree Recovery Center, we do everything in our power to ensure that your first treatment experience is also your last – and that if you have been in treatment beforehand, you never experience a relapse again. We prioritize the needs of each individual client.
