It’s a common question for someone new to treatment: What is dual diagnosis?
Mental and substance use disorders aren’t always separate problems – they’re conditions which often feed off of each other. A person with bipolar disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder may turn to alcohol or other drugs for relief from their symptoms; a person with a drug addiction may develop depression or anxiety as their life spirals out of control. This combination of illnesses is called a dual diagnosis, and presents a unique challenge to both patient and clinician.
