What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Did you know that a person with bipolar disorder is five times more likely to struggle with alcohol or drug abuse? This is due to the fact that individuals struggling with co-occurring mental health disorders are more likely to self-medicate to help cope with their mental health issues. As a result, substance abuse is highly common among individuals struggling with anxiety disorders, depression, and other mood disorders.

Dual diagnosis treatment is designed for treating co-occurring disorders like substance use disorder and mental illness at the same time. It is a unique program equipped with mental health professionals and therapeutic resources so you can understand your mental health conditions, and develop strategies that help you navigate these symptoms in the future, without turning to drugs or alcohol.

When Should I Consider Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Dual diagnosis programs are ideal for a person struggling with mental disorders and substance abuse at the same time. If you feel like your mental health and drug addiction are directly connected, dual diagnosis treatment could be right for you.

Through a combination of medication management and behavioral therapy, you are given a safe space to address how your mental health disorder could have impacted your substance abuse and vice versa. As you address how your mental health symptoms and substance abuse are connected, you are more likely to achieve long-term recovery. If you are unsure whether or not this level of care is the best fit for your needs, our professional addiction specialists will work directly with you to help you find a program for the unique challenges you face.
