Dual Diagnosis Treatment at Banyan Pompano
A dual diagnosis occurs when an individual suffers from substance abuse simultaneously with a mental health disorder. This is also known as a co-occurring disorder. The symptoms of one disease can sometimes mirror the symptoms of the other disease, making it hard for diagnosis. For those who are experiencing a dual diagnosis, a professional treatment center will design a plan that works to treat both illnesses. Dual diagnosis treatment should be customized to meet the needs of the individual, as everyone experiences their own unique journey with addiction and mental illness. Some people may turn to drugs or alcohol as a way to cope with their mental illness and this can result in a full-blown addiction. While two diseases at one time seems complex, there is hope for overcoming them and entering long-term recovery. Our drug rehab in South Florida explains the warning signs of a co-occurring disorder and how to properly treat it.
Warning Signs of a Dual Diagnosis
When two diseases are present at the same time, it can be hard to manage the active symptoms. There can be overlap when it comes to the symptoms of depression and the symptoms of alcoholism and it’s important to seek professional treatment for a proper diagnosis. The signs and symptoms of dual diagnosis will vary depending on the diseases that are present. If you are worried that your loved one is suffering from a co-occurring disorder, look for these warning signs.
- Daily functioning is almost impossible
- Inability to keep a job
- Healthy relationships are being destroyed
- Extreme mood changes and frequent outbursts at people
- Irritability and restlessness
- Financial struggles
When someone is struggling with simultaneous diseases, it can be very hard to even function on a daily basis. If this is the case, it’s time to turn to the professionals with the best care possible. If your loved one has been dealing with a mental illness in the past and you suspect substance abuse, they are most likely self-medicating with drugs or alcohol.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
A dual diagnosis treatment program should be designed to address both the mental health disorder and the substance use disorder concurrently. During dual diagnosis treatment, the patient will receive an initial medical assessment that will determine the best rehab program and type of treatment the patient will need. At Banyan Pompano, we provide customized treatment programs and our clinicians and therapists are committed to fully treating and healing each patient for long-term success.
Through unique addiction therapy methods and evidence-based treatment, a patient will be able to overcome both diseases, as well as learn the tools needed to handle everyday situations in recovery. Patients learn how to actively practice relapse prevention techniques outside of treatment so that the chances of a relapse occurring are slim.
