For patients with a dual diagnosis (mental illness plus addiction), the adult residential mental health program at Pasadena Villa may be ideal. A significant challenge for those fighting addiction while learning to live with and care for their mental illness is the emerging reality of “found time.”

When one’s life is consumed by procuring and enjoying the source of addiction, during recovery the question of what to do with all of that “extra” time, which used to be devoted to feeding the addiction, becomes important. This extra or empty time can be disconcerting and may actually become a trigger for relapse if not managed carefully. Since Pasadena Villa’s programs are structured and supervised, keeping residents busy and occupied from the moment they awaken until they go to bed, residents have significant help and support in learning to fill their “extra” time with healthy, productive activity. Residents also have access to weekly AA meetings for additional support.

For those not struggling with addiction, this may seem an odd problem. However, for those who have paced around their house seeking any distraction to divert their mind from what it wants, there is understanding. The structure provided by Pasadena Villa is vital to the recovery of your dual diagnosis young adult.

Pasadena Villa’s Smoky Mountain Lodge is an adult intensive psychiatric residential treatment center for clients with serious mental illnesses. We also provide other individualized therapy programs, step-down residential programs, and less intensive mental health services, such as Community Residential Homes, Supportive Housing, Day Treatment Programs and Life Skills training. Pasadena Villa’s Outpatient Center in Raleigh, North Carolina offers partial hospitalization (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (PHP). If you or someone you know may need mental health services, please complete our contact form or call us at 407-215-2519 for more information.
