Dual Diagnosis

A Tragically Common Mental Health Issue

Addiction is rarely born in a vacuum. There is usually an underlying mental health issue that leads to and sustains substance abuse. When a patient suffers from co-occurring addiction and mental illness, they are battling what is called a dual-diagnosis. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Mental Health reports that nearly eight million people suffer from some sort of dual-diagnosis disorder. Within the context of a dual-diagnosis, the co-occurring mental illness can either be related to or completely separate from the substance abuse aspect of the disease. Recovery Unplugged offers quality, comprehensive treatment for dual-diagnosis disorder. Call us today at (855) 784-3577 to start healing today.

What Does Dual-Diagnosis Treatment Look Like?

Treatment for dual diagnosis must include separate yet simultaneous treat of both the addiction and the mental health issue. Treatment for addiction should include a thorough and medically supervised course of detox followed by rehab and behavior modification. During rehab, patients address the mental health aspect of their dual diagnosis. Some of the more common mental health issues associated with dual diagnosis, include but are not limited to depression, anxiety, PTSD and trauma, bipolar disorder and more. The National Association of Mental Illness estimates that of the over 23 million Americans suffering from addiction, 53 percent suffer from at least one serious mental illness.


Don’t become another statistic. Recovery Unplugged is ready to provide you or your loved one with drug and alcohol abuse and addiction treatment. Call Now: (855) 784-3577 to take your life back.

After Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

Like any other type of recovery, the journey does not end after treatment. It’s critical that patients continue to work with a trained and qualified therapist to address both their substance abuse and their corresponding mental health issues. A quality rehab program will provide referral information to addiction-trained mental health professionals that specialize in dual-diagnosis treatment. Continuing care for dual-diagnosis disorder may also include medications to treat anxiety or depression. Patients must be diligent in monitoring both aspects of the condition for successful ongoing recovery.

Starting the Healing Process

Dual-diagnosis disorder is a complex condition that takes a trained and experience professional to recognize. Many addicts spend years engaging in active substance abuse without ever realizing they have any kind of mental health issue at all. Far too many let stigma and shame prevent them from getting the help they need for mental illness. As a result, they experience significant deterioration in their overall health and quality of life. More than 50 percent of those living with a dual diagnosis did not receive any medical treatment or psychotherapeutic intervention to help them progress in their recovery.

Recovery Unplugged is here to help you break the cycle of substance abuse and mental illness through quality music-based dual diagnosis treatment. It’s time to start fighting back. Call our experienced and qualified professionals today at (855) 784-3577.
