Dual-diagnosis refers to a person who is suffering two mental or physical health conditions at the same time. Dual-diagnoses patients are very common in the area of mental health as one condition often aggravates or triggers the other in a vicious cycle. Unless a person receives specialist dual-diagnosis treatment, both conditions will continue to worsen as they are left to essentially “feed” off each other.
A common example of dual-diagnosis is someone who suffers from both addiction and depression or anxiety as there is a very strong correlation between the two. However, from a treatment perspective, it is not enough to identify two conditions; rather it needs to be identified which one came first. In terms of substance abuse, there are two routes to becoming a dual-diagnosis patient:
The way CASA Recovery identifies the specific issues a dual-diagnosis person faces is by comprehensive evaluation and assessment. The most effective treatment path is recognized as addressing both health conditions separately but at the same time. This is due to the relationship between the two conditions and the fact that they are very likely to continue to drive one another without intervention.
