Orange County Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Dual Diagnosis Disorders
Of those who are struggling with substance addiction, many may also also suffer from other disorders such as depression, anxiety, intimacy issues, sex addiction, codependency, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other afflictions.
The clinical term “dual diagnosis” is used to describe such individuals, who often have a substance use disorder in addition to a mood disorder like bipolar disorder (also called manic depression) and depression. A dual diagnosis means that the patient has two distinct disorders or illnesses, each of which requires a specialized treatment plan.
The recognition of Dual Diagnosis Disorders as a distinct category that requires specialized treatment plans is a relatively recent phenomenon. The systems of care employed to treat dual diagnosis patients have historically remained separated from each other, which has limited the lack of quality treatment options available to sufferers.
If we view the addiction treatment industry on a national level, few drug treatment centers are well-equipped to effectively implement the integrated treatments required for a dual diagnosis patient.
