At All Points North, we want to help you move from surviving into thriving. Treatment is more successful when you address healing beyond the symptoms and dig into the root causes. More often than you might imagine, drug or alcohol addiction can mask mental illness, or vice-versa. Without getting to the root issue, treatment acts as a patch for the real underlying conditions. We’ve seen it happen time after time – maybe you’ve gone through a similar experience: clients seek support for addiction, but not the underlying mental disorder. After treatment, they fall back into a lifestyle of addiction and eventually relapse.
Luckily, there is an alternative path: when you work to address co-occurring disorders, you’re more likely to find long-lasting recovery.

WHAT ARE CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS?
It’s estimated that as many as half of those with substance addictions also suffer from mental health disorders. Typically, dual diagnosis clients may struggle to maintain sobriety. Intimacy can be difficult, and it’s common to experience erratic mood swings, violent tendencies, or uncontrolled anger. If you struggle with an undiagnosed co-occurring disorder, you may find it hard to formulate and convey your thoughts and might feel socially inept or develop solitary tendencies as a result. It might be hard to maintain employment and you may have issues managing your finances or controlling your spending.
Some of the most common co-occurring disorders found coupled with addiction are:
- Generalized anxiety
- Eating disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Borderline personality disorder (BPD)
- Attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
When we identify the co-occurring disorders as the root cause, we’re able to develop a more strategic approach to healing. Dual diagnosis not only helps you understand yourself better, but it also helps you understand the contributing factors that led to your addiction.
UNLOCK REAL HEALING
If you’ve tried to cope with a mental disorder by seeking “relief” in the form of drugs or alcohol, you may have unknowingly entered a vicious cycle that can quickly spiral out of control. Our client, Ashley, came to APN after years of childhood trauma that led to excessive drinking. By addressing trauma and alcohol addiction, Ashley was able to open herself up to the possibility of transformation and embrace her full potential to find her authentic self in the process.MEET ASHLEY
A FULL CONTINUUM OF CARE
Wherever you are, start there. All Points North has built a full continuum of care to provide multiple “front doors” where you can get started with treatment, whether you’re in crisis, maintenance, or progress already. APN offers residential treatment and partial hospitalization programs at All Points North Lodge in Edwards, CO. Virtual intensive outpatient programs (9-10 hrs./week) are available through the APN Connection app. Outpatient groups, 1-on-1 therapy and psychiatry, and support groups are also offered virtually through APN Connection. Not sure where to start? That’s pretty normal. Our in-house team will help you sort out all the details and find the right starting point for you.
GET TREATED IN-PERSON
APN Lodge is our primary location for residential and partial hospitalization treatment – with programs generally lasting 30+ days. When you start treatment, our comprehensive treatment team will develop a custom-curated treatment plan for your unique needs. You will work with a primary therapist one-on-one and join a vast array of tailored groups to help you navigate your past, present, and future. Your treatment plan will be determined based on your individual needs, and not all therapies will be right for everyone.
YOUR THERAPY OPTIONS
The APN team will create your treatment plan by pulling from interventions including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, process groups, family therapy, family-of-origin work, psychoeducation, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), art therapy, music therapy, experiential therapy, and a variety of other modalities. In addition to your typical schedule, you may be eligible for adjunctive therapies like Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) or Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for additional work on depression, anxiety, OCD, or smoking cessation. These treatments are an additional cost but may be covered by your insurance.
VIRTUAL THERAPY FOR CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS
If you’re looking for convenient mental health and addiction treatment or therapy that both fits with your life and helps you move forward, our online treatment may be a great fit for you. APN offers nearly 30 virtual therapy and support groups, family therapy options, and population-specific intensive outpatient programs (like athlete IOPs, professionals IOPs, and veterans IOPs). We also care about the quality of care you receive, so we pay our telehealth therapists about twice the rate of other leading online therapy providers.
APN CONNECTION: YOUR DUAL DIAGNOSIS APP
Online therapy is more seamless with a user-friendly app. APN has built its own APN-exclusive app for you to see your schedule, join sessions, track your progress, and get peer-to-peer support for your journey when you want it. APN Connection offers a secure hub for clients to join all remote APN sessions at the click of a few buttons.
