“Dual diagnosis” is when someone has both a mental illness and a substance abuse problem.
Many people with alcohol and drug problems also have a range of mental health problems at higher rates than the general community.
Drug Rehabis a leading dual diagnosis treatment center. We offer effective addiction and substance abuse treatment, with an emphasis on mental health and trauma recovery.
Dual diagnoses, or “co-occurring disorders”, occur when the substance dependency has developed as a result of an underlying "cause" of the addiction.
These underlying causes may include:
Bulimia and anorexia
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Schizophrenia and personality disorders
Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
Obsessive compulsive tendencies
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Our dedicated dual diagnosis experts include psychiatrists, psychologists and counselors. One of the most important parts of diagnosis and treatment is education.
Educating our patients, their friends, and their families helps to manage the impact of the disease and improve the recovery process.
Our Dual Diagnosis Services consist of:
Medically Managed Services
All patients with dual diagnosis are drug and/or alcohol dependent;but the additional symptoms are varied, depending on the psychiatric disorders affecting the individual.
The most common psychiatric illnesses seen in dual diagnosis patients fall under the category of personality or mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and panic disorder.
If drug or alcohol dependency and emotional disorders are destroying your family, friends or work relationships, contact Drug Rehabat (561) 123-1234.
