Treating Concurrent Disorders at Ravensview


Homewood Ravensview provides private and highly effective treatments which are tailored to the unique needs of individuals suffering with concurrent disorders. Treatment includes specialty programs, carefully designed by medical experts and tailored to a client’s needs, all provided in a beautiful, serene setting.

To address concurrent challenges, treatment is most successful when both problems are addressed simultaneously. Treatment is individualized and depends on the type and severity of the issues faced. Individuals at Ravensview receive group therapy, regular one-on-one contact with an expert therapist, and medication if it is needed.

Concurrent treatment planning requires comprehensive assessment—a key element of our treatment program at Ravensview. Through rigorous assessment, treatment is individualized, to address the concurrent issues that each individual brings to treatment, in the correct order of priority. An expert, interdisciplinary team at Ravensview addresses each case based on the specific needs of the individual.

What are Concurrent Disorders?


There a number of terms for concurrent disorders including ‘dual diagnosis,’ ‘comorbid disorders’ and ‘co-occuring conditions.’ Under any name, concurrent disorders are much more common than most people think. Anyone living with significant symptoms of more than one mental illness may be living with a concurrent disorder.

A reliable diagnosis of concurrent disorders can be challenging because the symptoms of one disorder can mask the symptoms of another. For example, the co-occurring presence of addiction may obscure the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder. This is one of the reasons that an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of mental illness is so vital – it can often be the first step to identifying and treating a concurrent disorder.

There are many possible combinations of concurrent disorders, and a thorough psychological assessment is necessary to get a clear picture of the person’s mental functioning and multiple symptoms. For clients with concurrent disorders, it is important to receive mental health treatment from a provider or team that specializes in the treatment of concurrent mental illness.

Specialized Programs


Homewood Ravensview offers individualized concurrent disorder programs for adults, first responders and military, executives and professionals, young adults, and provides additional support for the families of those affected. Each program has been meticulously developed with each audience in mind, including the specific challenges and obstacles they may face on their road to recovery.

Concurrent disorders happen fairly often; for example, many people with alcohol abuse also experience depression. Clients in the Cornerstone Program for adults are assessed for ‘concurrency’ and offered the best possible treatment for their unique presentation. This may involve multiple different types of complementary treatment simultaneously, to address different issues.

One of Ravensview’s areas of excellence, for all programming including the Guardians Program, is the treatment of concurrent disorders. Because we also specialize in treating first responders and military, we are able to assess and treat concurrent disorders using the strongest evidence on the concurrent disorders these individuals experience.

Concurrent disorders are a relatively common occurrence for young adults seeking treatment.  Because they are at a unique stage of life, filled with new developments and personal changes, they are vulnerable to developing multiple types of symptoms.  In the My Path Program for young adults, we use the best available research on life stage development and clinical practice, to assess ‘concurrency’ and provide treatment that targets all aspects of the individual’s mental health.

Concurrent disorders occur commonly for executives and professionals. For instance, many executives and professionals experience stress and burnout as well as substance abuse/addiction and depression and/or anxiety. The life of high-achieving professionals is complicated and can contribute to multiple types of problems. Treating concurrent disorders is an area of excellence within the Vanguard Program and we are able to provide the highest level of care for executives and professionals who come to treatment for multiple simultaneous problems.
