Iris Health Clinic


Schizoaffective Disorder and Addiction Treatment in Wisconsin

Schizoaffective disorder can be thought of as a combination of schizophrenia and a mood disorder. Typically, it develops in early adolescence and can evolve into full-blown schizophrenia if left untreated for too long.  The signs and symptoms of schizoaffective disorder can include disorganized speech, delusions, paranoia, lack of concern for hygiene, elevated moods, depression, sadness or hopelessness, social isolation, and more. Individuals who suffer from schizoaffective disorder quite often turn to drugs and alcohol to find relief from their symptoms, but unfortunately, this only complicates the disorder and can make it extremely difficult to manage.

Customized and Holistic Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

If you are suffering with schizoaffective disorder and addiction, you’ve come to the right place. At Iris Health Clinic, we understand that tackling substance use and schizoaffective  disorder simultaneously is important for anyone striving to recover since continued drug and/or alcohol use can present real complications in stabilizing a person’s mental, physical and emotional health.  This is why we offer a holistic dual-diagnosis treatment program that is tailored for each person’s unique set of needs and circumstances.  Our licensed professionals use only the latest evidence-based treatment practices that have been approved by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA).

Our Schizoaffective Disorder and Addiction Treatment Program - What to Expect

WRC’s dual-diagnosis treatment approach allows for clients to work closely with licensed professionals to develop a customized treatment plan to determine what their path to recovery will look like. We take into account a person’s current severity of schizoaffective  disorder, any other mental health issues, their history of drug and/or alcohol use, their supportive systems, and their personal commitment to living a life in long-term recovery. Participants will undergo a pre-screen to identify the severity of their addiction and schizoaffective to see which type of treatment will work best.  

Typically, our dual-diagnosis treatment programs are offered on an inpatient level for people who struggle with substance use and at least one other mental health condition or disorder. However, we do offer outpatient treatment, partial hospitalization, extended care programs, and more. Our Dual Diagnosis treatment is built on an integrated approach, meaning our programs combine the use of multiple treatment services in order to treat the whole person, so the mind, the body, and the soul.


We understand that seeking treatment is not easy and the last thing a person needs is to fear is that they will be exposed by treatment staff for doing so. Fortunately, the strict rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) are designed to protect patient confidentiality.   We respect these rules and we follow them. Plus, many of our leadership are in recovery and many of our family members, so we know first hand the need to seek treatment for ourselves and our loved ones privately.
