What is Dual Diagnosis?
- Dual diagnosis is the condition of suffering from a mental illness and a comorbid substance abuse problem.
- There is considerable debate surrounding the appropriateness of using a single category for a heterogeneous group of individuals with complex needs and a varied range of problems.
- Dual diagnosis emerged as a concept over 20 years ago, but unfortunately is still not well understood by the medical establishment though it is quite simple. It is, however, incredibly effective.
- Dual diagnosis describes a practice that treats people who suffer from both an addiction and a psychiatric disorder.
We offer a holistic approach to addiction treatment & mental health.
