Dual Diagnosis Treatment at Banyan Heartland
Dual diagnosis, also known as co-occurring disorder is the term used when describing an individual who is suffering from a substance abuse disorder and mental health disorder simultaneously.
Those who struggle with a mental health disorder are more likely to abuse alcohol and drugs. Dual diagnosis disorders are often difficult to diagnose or are misdiagnosed due to the complexity of symptoms. Many of those who suffer from substance abuse and addiction problems see drugs and alcohol as a tool to ease their mental health issues. The self-medicating on drugs and alcohol often goes unnoticed until the substance use consumes all aspects of their life. If you or someone you know has been experiencing these issues; professional treatment is needed as soon as possible.
There are many forms of Dual Diagnosis because of the many different mental health disorders.
