Dual diagnosis, also known as co-occurring disorders, refers to the presence of both a mental health disorder and a substance abuse disorder in an individual. For example, a person may have both depression and an addiction to alcohol.
The exact cause of dual diagnosis is not fully understood, but it is believed to be a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurological factors. Many people with dual diagnosis have a family history of mental health disorders or substance abuse.
Dual diagnosis is typically diagnosed by a mental health professional, such as a psychologist or psychiatrist, through a thorough evaluation of a person's symptoms, behavior, and medical history. It is important to get a thorough evaluation to determine the correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.
Treatment for dual diagnosis typically involves a combination of medication and therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or family therapy. The goal of treatment is to address both the mental health disorder and the substance abuse disorder, in order to achieve lasting recovery and improve overall functioning in daily life.
People are able to manage their symptoms effectively with the right treatment plan. Recovery is an ongoing process and may involve ongoing therapy and support to maintain long-term stability.
