What is Dual Diagnosis
Dual Diagnosis recovery combines the most effective elements of mental health care with substance abuse treatment. We use this approach to help clients with co-occurring conditions who also struggle with drug or alcohol addiction. We understand the importance of addressing both your addiction and co-occurring disorder together in the rehab setting.
If you are in need of a dual diagnosis treatment center but don’t receive the proper care, problems are likely to arise, including:
- Very Quick Relapse: Since the underlying cause of your addiction is not treated, you risk relapse upon release. When your leave treatment, your depression, bipolar, anxiety, or other mental disorder still exists. This can cause you to begin the process of self-medication with drugs or alcohol.
- High Probability of Leaving Treatment Early: When you undergo detox from drugs or alcohol, your underlying issues remain. If left untreated, your mental and emotional strain can be too much to take. You might simply check out of rehab so you can have a drink or get high to alleviate stress.
- Inability to Assimilate into a Group: Treatment centers offer group therapy. This allows you to enjoy a feeling of community, which provide a high success rate for overcoming addiction. If you have an untreated mental illness, you might find it difficult to become part of the group or community.
