Mental Health Disorders

Home » Mental Health Disorders

Hanley Center is an established addiction treatment center for men, women, and older adults specializing in addressing mental health disorders. Many men and women diagnosed with substance use disorders also have mental health disorders. Mental health disorders may also occur on their own. Either way, comprehensive treatment of mental health disorders is critical to lifelong recovery.

With only eight beds to ensure a personalized experience, our Residential Mental Health Program helps adults and older adults successfully transition back to lives, homes, families, and careers with a newfound sense of self-worth, direction, and control. Our comprehensive clinical approach focuses on long-term recovery and addresses trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, process addictions, mood disorders, personality disorders, and substance use disorders. Our patients leave Hanley Center Residential Mental Health Program and directly access ongoing services through their dedicated case manager so they can continue the healing journey they started with a team they feel safe with and have grown to trust. Their unique continuing care plan may include individual therapy, ongoing family support, marriage or couples counseling, psychiatric referrals, medication management, and self-care techniques to help ensure a safe recovery environment.

Our integrated approach focuses on healing the whole person. If you are searching for a safe and supportive environment for mental health struggles for yourself or a loved one, Hanley Center can help.

Mood disorders:

Clinical depression debilitates normal functioning in life. It is the most common co-occurring diagnosis among people with addictive illnesses, along with anxiety. Bipolar disorder, dysthymia, or substance-induced mood disorders are other types of mood disorders.

Anxiety disorders:

Anxiety includes a broad spectrum of emotional experiences, from reactions to everyday situations to severe anxiety such as PTSD. It is frequently cited by people with substance use disorders and requires specialized care.


Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects both men and women equally, and it is triggered by traumatic life events. In drug and alcohol treatment, many women have suffered verbal, physical, or sexual abuse. Disassociation from oneself and events, anger, depression, high anxiety, and insomnia are a few symptoms of PTSD.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders:

Obsessive-compulsive disorders are chronic conditions in which a person experiences uncontrollable thoughts, obsessions, or behaviors where the person feels the urge to repeat again and again. When these disorders are combined with addiction, they can severely impact a person’s life.

Process addictions:

Process addictions often co-occur with a substance use disorder, such as shopping, gambling, disordered eating, and sex. Cross-addictive behaviors may exacerbate one another.

Personality disorders:

Personality disorders include borderline personality disorder (BPD), narcissistic personality disorder, and histrionic personality disorder. All three of these disorders are common among people with addiction. Other examples could include paranoid personality disorder, schizoid personality disorder, avoidant personality disorder, and dependent personality disorder.

Mental Health Disorders are Complex – Integrative Treatment Is the Answer

Integrated treatment is a comprehensive approach that offers all the therapeutic resources necessary to aid physical, mental, emotional, and psychological healing. Living with a mental disorder may increase the likelihood of developing substance use disorder — and vice versa. All people are unique. A mental health disorder may have preceded drug or alcohol abuse in some cases. In some instances, mental health symptoms appear after addiction has taken hold — in some cases, these conditions can be worsened by drug use.

For people with co-occurring disorders, a comprehensive treatment plan should include:

  • Evidence-based therapy
  • Medical care (including medication, when appropriate)
  • Psychiatric services and ongoing care
  • Case management
  • Family education and programming
  • Life skills training
  • Recovery support
  • Continuing care planning
Hanley Center has been treating people with co-occurring disorders for over three decades. With the right help, we know people can and do recover.

Treatment Begins with an Assessment

Every patient deserves a treatment plan customized to their specific needs. A comprehensive behavioral health assessment and psychological testing is conducted on each patient at our Center for Brain Recovery at Hanley Center to ensure that all substance-use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders are diagnosed and treated.

We offer tests such as:

  • PEPQ (PsychEval Personality Questionnaire)
  • MMPI-2 (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2)
  • MCMI (Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory)

In addition to clinical interviews and sessions with their primary therapist, our thorough assessment provides a foundation for meeting each patient’s unique needs.

Effective treatment of co-occurring disorders requires treatment simultaneously, by the same treatment team, at the same place. Our medically intensive and multi-disciplinary programming treats co-occurring disorders through the expertise of our highly trained professionals. Our treatment teams address not only the physical and mental needs of our patients but also their psychological and spiritual needs. Every day, our highly trained staff members — from our medical professionals to our licensed therapists and psychiatrists — gather to discuss patient cases and work towards solutions. A specialized, integrated treatment model has been proven to improve the outcome and quality of life.

Center for Brain Recovery

Co-occurring disorders can negatively affect and exacerbate each other, which makes successful treatment more challenging. CBR at Hanley Center, our health psychology department, is an innovative program that promotes brain health through evidence-based therapies. CBR services are specifically designed to recognize the connection between addiction and mental health disorders as well as to provide treatment that addresses both concerns simultaneously, offering our patients a greater chance at long-term recovery.

Recovery is possible, and people do recover.

Although there is no cure for any mental health disorder, including addiction, many individuals go on to lead extraordinary lives filled with hope and courage. Treatment interventions based on research have proven effective in treating patients living with co-occurring diagnoses. The key is to receive personalized treatment that is intensive and integrated. People with co-occurring disorders can recover with long-term support and therapeutic interventions.

At Hanley Center, we know that co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders impact one another and that they must be treated together. Recovery is dependent on a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
