Is the Dual Diagnosis Program Right for Me?
A dual diagnosis program refers to a treatment plan that aims at dealing with disorders that are occurring at the same time. For example, an individual may be suffering with both a drug and alcohol abuse problem, or an alcohol/substance abuse problem that is being accompanied by a mental illness. The mental illnesses may include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, or bi-polar disorder.
The Florida House Experience recommends the Dual Diagnosis Program when there is more than one issue at hand in order to treat all problems appropriately and simultaneously.
