Dual Diagnosis Treatment
What is Dual Diagnosis?
People with a dual diagnosis face an addiction problem along with a psychiatric disorder. The abuse of drugs with a psychiatric disorder reinforces each other and complicates the dual diagnosis treatment. The fact is that these are very vulnerable people who have difficulty maintaining a normal life in society.
Dual diagnosis patients have problems in almost all areas of life: housing, employment and income, daytime activities and relationships with family and friends. The dual diagnosis treatment will focus on the psychiatric symptoms and the addiction. Treating both areas leads to a favorable outcome.
