Updated: Aug 3, 2022

About 50% of those who have a substance abuse problem also have a mental illness, and vice versa. Someone who suffers from both a mental disorder and a drug or alcohol addiction has a dual diagnosis.
It’s important for those who have a dual diagnosis to receive dual diagnosis treatment. The side effects of the substance abuse problem and the mental illness exacerbate each other, making it more difficult to live the life you want.
Dual diagnosis treatment is meant to treat both the mental illness and substance abuse problems for comprehensive, holistic help. It can help you get to the root of your problems and learn healthy coping mechanisms that help your mental health and addiction.
This approach to addiction treatment involves a number of different approaches so that the treatment you get matches your unique situation perfectly. By using cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectic behavioral therapy, you can work through all of your problems to start building the life you want.
Dual diagnosis treatment is typically designed around the individual. Your unique needs, history, and mental illness will lead to a personalized treatment so you can get the help you need. Still, the purpose of dual diagnosis treatment is the same for all: treat both the mental illness and substance abuse so that the patient receives holistic care.
