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 or 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 is most often 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:

Dual Diagnosis Help

At Dual Diagnosis Help we recognize that treating substance abuse is complex and offers no easy answers. For most people who seek treatment, there are one or more mental health issues at the heart of their addiction. Often, diseases like alcoholism, can be linked with depression and anxiety disorders that may cause or exacerbate their condition. If untreated, recovery can be delayed and the probability of relapse significantly increases. This is why any long-term, effective chemical dependency treatment program must simultaneously address an individual’s underlying mental health disorder(s).

Staggering Statistics

The official stats on drug and alcohol abuse within the United States are astonishing. Everyday, millions of Americans must live with the many pitfalls associated with substance abuse, including the more than 7 million children who have parents with alcoholism. The disease of addiction is often correlated with incidences of violence, destruction of property, suicide, job loss, and more. Unless properly treated, addiction will only continue to wreak havoc on the lives of everyone involved. The need for comprehensive and effective treatment options for individuals suffering from the addiction is clear. Today, dual diagnosis treatment centers, which deal with both the physical and mental disorders connected with addiction, offer the cutting-edge solutions in the battle against dependency. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), approximately 6.8 million Americans had both a substance abuse disorder and a co-occurring mental illness. Diseases of addiction, like alcoholism, are more likely to occur among people with mental disorders than people with no mental health troubles at all.

I am currently in my 50th day of a life changing experience here at Dual Diagnosis Help, Malibu. The amazing people that have touched my life are now part of the fabric of my recovery. Recovery permeates the beautiful surroundings and emanates from the sober staff. The outside AA meetings offer real world experience that I can carry with me when I leave. But it is the life-long sober friendships that I really treasure. My therapist is in recovery and offers a unique perspective to my recovery issues. I came here hoping and I leave here with hope.
