What Is Dual Diagnosis?

Dual diagnosis is a concept in mental disorders relating to an individual suffering from substance use disorders alongside another mental health condition. Dual diagnosis disorders may come in different forms. That's why the Mental Health Services Administration alongside the national institute for mental health sheds light through continuous research on these mental health conditions and why they occur simultaneously.

Treatment centers are doing their best to provide the best treatment options with psychosocial approaches for people suffering from their dual diagnosis disorder. As each case may vary, there may be instances where a substance use disorder may coincide with another psychological issue, such as bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and certain eating disorders which would inhibit effective treatment for individuals.

Does Transcend Provide Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

As Transcend Recovery Community is not a treatment center or treatment provider, what we can offer is a constant support to people in their early stages of recovery, as they continue their post-treatment programs, such as addiction treatment or mental health treatment.

However, we work directly with our sister program, The Heights Treatment, which in turn offers an individualized treatment plan for certain cases to help individuals with their mental wellness & addiction recovery. These treatments may come in the form of cognitive-behavioral therapy or family therapy to help these individuals, especially young adults, stay sober and avoid risky behaviors resulting from drugs or drug use.

Transcend's aim is to provide a safe space while employing a holistic approach in their continuous improvement both physically, spiritually, and mentally. Our environment is conducive for them to heal from their abuse and mental health issues in the hopes of someday reintegrating themselves into society and their family members.

What Is the Difference Between a Dual Diagnosis and a Co-occurring Disorder?

When comparing the concepts of dual diagnosis and co-occurring illnesses, it is easy to see these terms have quite a bit in common. Both terms often involve concurrent diagnoses of addiction and psychiatric disorders. While they are very similar, there are some slight differences.

For dual diagnosis, multiple conditions tend to happen simultaneously, and both are generally independent of each other. In other words, the person affected may happen to have a mental illness while dealing with addiction. The substance can exacerbate mental illness, but they still exist independently of each other.

Co-occurring illnesses, a term almost exclusively used regarding mental health, also frequently feature substance abuse and mental illness; however, it can refer to two or more health issues instead of just two. Additionally, the conditions have a dependent relationship. This includes scenarios such as individuals with mental illness being led to self-medicate, or effects of an addiction leading to mental issues.

How Do You Deal with Mental Health Disorders Like Dual Diagnosis?

Dual diagnosis may significantly impact an individual's life and cause a strain on their relationships with friends and family. It's essential to identify early warning signs before things get worse. It is also important to avoid self-medication at all costs.

As the journey may be tough for someone suffering, Transcend offers a helping hand and reassurance to these individuals that not all hope is lost. Through strong support groups and proper guidance, there is still a chance for a better life. We aim to provide this to our clients as they seek growth and long-term recovery.

How Common Is This Mental Health Disorder?

In recent information released by the national alliance and a national survey on US mental illness, 45% of Americans have dual diagnosis disorders. These may come in the form of a mental illnesses, such as depression and anxiety, and substance use disorders.

Individuals suffering from these illnesses may need special mental health treatment from a treatment center specializing in such cases. Most institutions offer these treatment programs while allowing individuals to stay in a residential facility that allows them to recover while cultivating a sense of accountability from their past trauma from certain drugs or a substance use disorder.

Through constant guidance and positive reinforcement, these individuals may see improvement not only in themselves but in their general outlook in life.

How to Tell If Someone Needs a Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Identifying the need for a dual diagnosis treatment from an officially-authorized treatment center for someone suffering from a substance use disorder or a psychological issue is quite challenging, especially for an untrained eye due to symptoms manifesting differently in people. However, these are the usual associated signs and symptoms:

Poor performance in school or work

Growing financial problems

Impulsive behavior ignoring any sense of care or judgment

Losing interest in their usual hobbies or passions

Recurring suicidal thoughts

Self-destructive behavior like substance use

If you or someone you know show these symptoms, we recommend a proper consultation with a medical professional from a treatment center to better diagnose your situation.
