Dual Diagnosis Treatment at Banyan Chicago
Addiction is a terrible disease. It can lead to severe health problems, unsightly physical effects, relationship problems, and even legal issues, but for some people, the problems do not stop there. If you find that you or a loved one is struggling with poor mental health on top of a drug or alcohol issue, dual diagnosis treatment could help.
What Is Dual Diagnosis?
Dual diagnosis, also known as a co-occurring disorder, is the term used to describe an individual who is suffering from a substance abuse disorder as well as a mental health disorder simultaneously. Dual diagnosis disorders are often difficult to diagnose or are misdiagnosed due to the complexity of the symptoms. It can also sometimes be difficult to determine which problem came first. Many people struggling with a mental health problem will turn to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate and will develop a substance abuse problem as a result. Others may develop a mental health disorder after they already have an addiction. According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over 9 million Americans struggled with both a mental illness and a substance abuse problem in the past year. If you or someone you know has been experiencing these issues, a dual diagnosis treatment program could make all of the difference.
