Dual Diagnosis Treatment
If you are suffering from mental illness with complications brought about through alcohol or drug abuse, “Dual Diagnosis” is a term that might accurately describe your condition. Dual Diagnosis (also called “co-occurring disorders, COD ”) can be challenging to distinguish and diagnose because the use of drugs will often carry psychiatric symptoms that make it hard to distinguish from a pre-existing mental disorder. Since this condition requires attention for substance abuse or dependency as well as mental illness, a dual diagnosis scenario most often is more complicated than these conditions independent of one another. Recent studies suggest that people diagnosed with mental illness are at a higher risk for substance dependency (marijuana, opiates, cocaine and other stimulants and alcohol) and people who are alcohol dependent or substance abusers might be self-medicating for mental illness (including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia).
Other theories that consider the relationship
between mental illness and substance abuse include:
Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Past Exposure to Psychiatric Medications
Alleviation of Dysphoria
Multiple Risk Factor

I have been very impressed with the care that I have received at Dual Diagnosis Help. The facilities, staff, and food are wonderful. I encourage anyone interested in treatment to explore Dual Diagnosis Help as an option.
My experience of Dual Diagnosis Help has been great. The staff is very receptive to people’s needs and the groups offer great insight into the issues surrounding addiction and subsequent sobriety. Dual Diagnosis Help does a great job at emphasizing the importance of a mind and body connection by taking us to the gym five days a week and combining that with groups which teach healthy coping mechanisms for areas ranging from anxiety and depression to anger management and relapse prevention.
