Dual Diagnosis Treatment Programs
A dual diagnosis program is a treatment program wherein mental illnesses along with drug and/or alcoholism are treated.
A dual diagnosis program is appropriate for Individuals suffering from psychiatric, mental and emotional disorders, such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, post tramatic stress disorders, eating disorders, and myriad other mental health issues.
When one suffers from the aforementioned conditions, drugs or alcohol are frequently used as coping mechanisms to aid in dealing with pain, discomfort, and distress caused by these issues. Unfortunately, many individuals find themselves addicted to the drugs or alcohol that they use to cope, which presents an entirely new issue that they must now address and resolve, typically through a dual diagnosis program.
