You have probably heard people talk about Dual Diagnosis Program (DD) before, but do you actually know what it is? A lot of people don’t really know, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Dual Diagnosis Program is what Medical Professionals declare an individual with dual diagnosis when a mental health disorder is identified as co-occurring with the individual’s substance abuse.
Substance abuse can include anything from drug abuse and addiction to alcohol abuse and alcoholism. A mental health disorder would include things like a psychological disease, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other mood disorders, eating disorders, and personality disorders. Both the chemical dependence and the physical dependence affect someone who is suffering from the dual diagnosis of co-occurring illnesses or disorders, which can be manifested in many combinations.
Here at Florida House Experience, we know that the most effective treatment for addiction with dual diagnosis battles both the diseases for which our patients have been diagnosed.
