Most individuals accept a medical diagnosis without reservation, never questioning the accuracy even after years of unsuccessful treatment. Conditions such as addiction and personality disorders can obscure or complicate the presentation of other co-existing disorders (dual diagnosis), making a proper evaluation difficult. At the Delray Center for Healing, by offering a Misdiagnosis Correction Assessment to our clients, we have found that many of our clients were misdiagnosed previously – as high as 80% with Bipolar Disorder. Because an incorrect assessment often results in treatment that is ineffective and even dangerous, we are diligent in taking the necessary steps to make certain that our clients are properly diagnosed.
Every one of our client’s diagnosis is based upon a comprehensive and thorough evaluation. When necessary, the collaborative effort of the entire multidisciplinary treatment team can be employed to develop an accurate determination. Once the correct diagnosis has been made, each client will receive a personalized treatment plan designed to address the particular needs indicated in their evaluation. Accurate diagnostic assessment is the foundation of our individualized approach to client care and is just one of the many reasons why our clients can expect long-term treatment success.
