Who we are

A Proven Approach to Recovery

Effective dual diagnosis programs combine mental health and substance abuse interventions that are tailored for the complex needs of the individuals suffering.

Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center was created almost 10 years ago when founder Amy Fackrell noticed a shortage of facilities that treat both mental illness and substance abuse at the same time. Many facilities were strong in treating one or the other, and many offered 30-day residential options. However, it was difficult to find a center designed specifically for dual diagnosis, or one that gave clinical teams enough time truly assess, diagnose, and treat clients properly. Seeing this need, Amy decided to redirect her career in law and pursue counseling. Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center was born.

Since its inception in 2011, Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center has helped countless individuals struggling to maintain long-term sobriety as a result of underlying mental illness and trauma. Our passion for helping this specific population has been the driving force behind our ethically and therapeutically grounded treatment, which has transformed the lives of so many.

What Viewpoint Does Differently to Treat Dual Diagnosis

Over 40 years of combined experience

Our licensed clinicians are trained in both mental illness and substance abuse, and continuously educate themselves on best practices and innovative therapeutic methods to treat dual diagnosis clients.


A phased approach to treatment

Each client’s treatment plan is specifically tailored to their individual needs and diagnoses. A treatment plan is created immediately with a clinical team of licensed therapists, case managers, social workers, psychiatrists, and psychologists, and reviewed weekly to ensure client success.


All-encompassing clinical programming

Our clinical programming incorporates education, mindfulness, and evidence-based therapies to promote client self-awareness of diagnoses, triggers, strengths, and effective coping strategies to thrive in recovery.


Daily clinical interventions, activities, and exercises:

Our day-to-day treatment focuses on managing thoughts and feelings, identifying destructive behaviors, and learning how to change and manage them while practicing healthy relationships and respectful communication.


Treatment based on clients’ interests

Education, vocational training, and volunteering are coupled with case management, enabling each client to identify their passions and goals and start achieving them while in treatment.


Evidence-based psychotherapeutic models

We integrate motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and somatic experiencing (SE). These are interwoven within group therapy and individual sessions focusing on grief and loss, trauma, cross addiction, relapse prevention, relationships, codependency, boundaries, and nutrition and wellness.


Family programs, workshops, and therapeutic sessions

As addiction and mental illness can affect not only the person suffering, but also those closest to them, our clinical team has incorporated therapy sessions and workshops for clients and their support systems.


Life skills training

We teach budgeting, nutrition, medication education, and mindfulness, allowing each client to practice for a successful life outside of treatment. Clients are supported in every way possible to become gainfully employed or enrolled in school, depending on their needs and goals.


Recovery community exposure, service, participation, and awareness

Clients attend daily recovery community meetings, often 12-step, to connect with others struggling with addiction and create a positive sober community support system.
