The most important aspect of dual diagnosis treatment is that it assists to heal the whole person, not just the addiction which is often a symptom of an underlying issue. We see trauma as being at the core of many physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual imbalances that our clients are experiencing. The Bay Method provides a gentle disentanglement from these wounds from the past.
Within a framework of addressing trauma first and foremost, we create a safe, supportive environment, where we combine the environment, a culture of warmth and nurture and a philosophy that addiction and trauma can be truly healed.
This includes attending to the brain chemistry, nutrition, the medical and the psychological conditions, plus providing a friendly atmosphere and relaxing physical surroundings. We believe that, until a deeper level of healing is reached, the chance of relapse is greater because the actual root cause of the addiction has not been dealt with.
