Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center
A dual diagnosis means that an individual has both a drug or alcohol addiction and a mental health disorder, like depression, anxiety, or borderline personality disorder (BPD) . Many people struggling with symptoms of mental illness use alcohol or drugs to find relief from their symptoms, which can ultimately lead to a more serious addiction.
The first step to successfully treating dual diagnosis is to address the acute effects of the drug or alcohol abuse since substances can mask mental health disorder symptoms that need to be addressed. It’s also because drug and alcohol addiction can create symptoms that resemble a mental illness, often leading to a misdiagnosis and improper treatment. The best dual diagnosis treatment will address both the addiction and the mental illness so that clients can make a complete recovery from both.
