Dual Diagnostic Substance Abuse Outpatient Treatment

Advene Health GroupAdvene Health GroupDual diagnosis treatment or recovery blends the most successful aspects of mental health care and substance abuse treatment. Addicted individual’s often struggle with disorders that include depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety or personality disorders without their knowledge. Over time, the lack of treatment for one condition can intensify the other. Mental health disorders often have symptoms that are unpleasant and addicts utilize drugs and alcohol to self-medicate the disorder. The use of illicit substance can often provide temporary relief from psychological symptoms. However, this will amplify the mental health issue in the long run usually causing an individual’s addiction to evolve at an increased rate. To accurately diagnose and treat a dual diagnosis patient, substance abuse must be eliminated for a period of time. This allows true psychological symptoms to surface and be treated quickly and accordingly.
