A dual diagnosis (or co-occurring condition) describes the condition of a person suffers from both a substance abuse disorder and a mental illness. Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence that can affect a person’s ability to recover from either. A dual diagnosis is associated with a poorer recovery prognosis than those who are not suffering from co-occurring conditions, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
For dual diagnosis treatment that addresses co-occurring conditions, call Drug Treatment Centers Ramapo. Dial (732) 453-6646 to speak with our qualified addiction specialists.
If a person has a dual diagnosis, it is important he or she discloses mental health medical history when pursuing inpatient rehabilitation treatment. Drug Treatment Centers Ramapo can then provide services to address both the mental health and substance abuse conditions.
The reason or reasons why a person has co-occurring conditions can vary. For example, some people may use illegal drugs or abuse alcohol as a means to self-medicate feelings of anxiety, hopelessness or depression. However, drugs and alcohol can perpetuate these emotions because they cause great highs, followed by low “lows.” Using drugs and alcohol can also trigger a mental illness.
An estimated one-third of all people with mental illness have a dual diagnosis, according to NAMI.
Mental health disorders associated with substance abuse problems include:
An estimated 259,000 people in New Jersey have a mental illness, according to NAMI. However, only 46 percent of adults in the state have received treatment for their mental illness.
Modern recovery programs use a multi-faceted approach to treat mental illness and a substance abuse disorder.
An important aspect of drug treatment for dual diagnosis is to have an established aftercare program that continues therapy after an outpatient or inpatient rehabilitation experience. Examples of common treatments include 12-step programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous; group therapy or continued individualized counseling.
