Why dual diagnosis treatment?
Dual diagnosis treatment combines the very best mental illness and addiction treatment for people with co-occurring disorders, such as chemical dependency and any of the following mental illnesses:
- Panic disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Other mental illnesses
Doctors now understand that to treat a patient with mental illness who is dependent on chemical substances, the best approach is to treat the illnesses as separate, but related to one another.
For instance, no one should expect to put their mental illness into remission simply by receiving addiction treatment. In the same way, no one should expect to put their addiction disorder in remission simply by being treated for mental illness.

We have addiction counselors, medical doctors and nurses on staff 24/7 to meet your needs.

What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
Dual diagnosis treatment centers help inpatient drug rehab patients who have co-existing mental illness and addiction problems. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, this diagnosis is quite common. About 37 percent of people who abuse alcohol and 53 percent of people who abuse drugs have a serious mental illness.
Dual diagnosis treatment centers help patients who have addiction problems and any of the following common mental illnesses: depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and personality disorders.
About 29 percent of all persons diagnosed with a mental illness have a substance abuse problem. Unfortunately, most of this 29 percent receive help solely for their mental illness.
Doctors from dual diagnosis treatment centers stress that both mental illness and addiction should be treated simultaneously. The diagnosis, however, can be difficult. After all, symptoms of patients admitted to inpatient substance abuse centers often exhibit symptoms from their drug abuse that closely relate to symptoms of a profound mental illness.
Therefore, medically supervised detox is necessary toward the correct diagnosis. Once the body is cleared of toxic chemicals, doctors and therapists can monitor the patient for a determined time to determine whether or not a serious mental illness exists.
If the patient is, in fact, mentally ill, they should receive help for both substance abuse and addiction simultaneously, but through separate methods. For instance, Twelve Step work is useful to treat addiction. Medication and therapy is beneficial for mental illness. The two treatments should compliment one another, but the patient should never receive help for one disorder and not the other. For this reason, dual diagnosis treatment centers make certain their inpatient drug rehab centers employ both addiction counselors and trained psychiatrists.
If you are suffering from mental illness and addiction, don’t hesitate to call or chat with a dual diagnosis treatment counselor confidentially, 24/7.
We can offer you the help you need. The good news is that mental illness and addiction treatment is covered by most major health insurance plans.

Is Mental Illness and Addiction Common?
It is very common for people who are dependent on chemical substances, such as drugs and alcohol to be suffering from a mental illness at the same time.
Many dual diagnosis treatment center doctors believe patients who suffer from mental illness use drugs and alcohol to self medicate their problems. However, no one knows for sure why so many patients who suffer from mental illness use drugs and alcohol.
You are not alone. Take a look at these recent statistics regarding dual diagnosis treatment patients:
Recent results from the National Comorbidity Survey revealed the following related to dual diagnosis patients:
- 42.7 percent of patients with an addictive disorder lasting 12 months had at least one mental illness disorder
- 14.7 percent of patients with an mental illness disorder lasting 12-months had at least one addictive disorder.
A recent Epidemiologic Catchment Area (ECA) survey found that individuals with severe mental disorders were at risk for developing an addiction disorder. The results revealed the following related to dual diagnosis patients:
- 47 percent of patients with schizophrenia were four times more likely than the general population to have an addiction disorder.
- 61 percent of patients with bipolar disorder were five times as likely as the general population to have an addiction disorder.
These surveys prove that co-occurring mental disorders and addiction are common, and that integrated treatment is required to treat individuals who suffer from these illnesses.
