What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
A dual diagnosis is when someone has both a mental health condition and an addiction to drugs or alcohol. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) reports that roughly a third of people living with mental health conditions, also suffer from substance use disorder. Dual diagnosis treatment aims to treat both conditions, while providing you with the tools you need to be successful in recovery. In combination with traditional therapies, trauma therapies will be used to help identify and heal from root causes of addiction and allow for substantial personal growth. Medications can also be used to restore normal brain functioning and reduce cravings for drugs or alcohol.
Who Can Benefit from Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
Anyone who is struggling with substance abuse as well as a mental health condition can benefit from dual diagnosis treatment. Since addiction and mental health conditions can be risk factors for each other, treating one without treating the other would be counterproductive to your success in recovery. Being able to identify if a loved one is struggling with dual diagnosis can be tricky because many of the symptoms present the same for both conditions, but here are some things to keep an eye out for:
- Mood swings, irritability
- Getting in trouble with the law
- Losing their job
- Loss of interest in things they once enjoyed
- Significant changes in appearance or neglecting their hygiene
- Withdrawing from friends and family
- Developing a tolerance to drugs or alcohol
Common Mental Health Conditions That Co-Occur with Addiction
The most common mental health conditions that accompany addiction are:
The Dangers of Self-Medicating with Alcohol or Drugs
Experiencing trauma or struggling with an untreated mental health condition is incredibly painful and can leave you feeling hopeless and afraid, so seeking solace in the bottom of a bottle is understandable, however, attempting to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol is dangerous and can quickly spiral into a full blown addiction. Self-medicating with depressants (such as alcohol or barbiturates) often worsens mental health symptoms and decreases effectiveness of medications prescribed to treat those. It can also cause the development of new mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety, and it can potentially cause you to experience new trauma. Most importantly, it can delay you from getting the help you need to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
