Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders
It is not uncommon for patients suffering from addiction treatment to also experience co-occurring mental health disorders. Dual diagnosis is when an individual who is suffering from addiction also suffers from co-occurring mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar. Having a co-occurring mental health issue is common in addiction. In fact, people with mental health disorders are far more likely to abuse substances in order to cope. There are approximately 9 million Americans who abuse alcohol or drugs that have an undiagnosed mental health disorder. Sadly, only about seven percent of these people receive the treatment they need.
Because addiction symptoms mirror mental health disorder symptoms, dual diagnosis can be tricky. JourneyPure Emerald Coast is a premier rehabilitation center that provides integrated, comprehensive care to patients experiencing co-occurring disorders.
