Dual Diagnosis Treatment


Dual Diagnosis Treatment at Into Action Recovery Centers

Addiction often occurs hand-in-hand with other emotional or mental challenges. If you’re suffering from substance abuse addiction alongside a mental health challenge such as depression, you may have what addiction treatment professionals call “dual diagnosis”. In many cases, this dual diagnosis issue will make your addiction worse or, sometimes, even contribute to it in the first place.

It’s important to develop a customized treatment plan for your addiction that also addresses your dual diagnosis challenges.

Finding an addiction treatment facility that understands and properly treats dual diagnosis alongside substance abuse can be challenging. That’s why we’ve assembled a counseling team, led by our onsite medical director, that brings decades of mental health treatment experience to our programs.

Dual Diagnosis can include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

What is a Dual Diagnosis?

Dual diagnosis is a mental health issue or challenge that impacts or influences your substance abuse addiction. Common disorders that are often associated with addiction include depression, anxiety, and traumatic stress.

Is dual diagnosis causing my addiction?

In some cases, there is a clear connection between dual diagnosis and the start of substance abuse. Usually, though, we’re not able to clearly connect dual diagnosis to the onset of addiction. We do know that dual diagnosis typically make addictive behaviors more common and harder to break.

Why should I treat dual diagnosis at the same time as my addiction?

Treating addiction without addressing your emotional and mental health is ineffective in establishing lasting sobriety. At the same time, looking only at your emotional well-being while overlooking addictive behavior can also be harmful. A holistic approach that looks at the whole person is much more effective in promoting positive, healthy behaviors long term.
