Importance of Dual Diagnosis Treatment in Substance Use Disorder

Dual Diagnosis Treatment is the process of creating an individual diagnosed with substance use disorder (such as heroin addiction) and a co-occurring mental health disorder (such as anxiety attacks, depressive episodes, bipolar disorder, etc.). The interaction of the two conditions makes the rehabilitation complex, with high risks of adverse health effects if not treated effectively.

 An individual with a dual diagnosis commonly has a denial behaviour. They tend to ignore the medical advice and disregard the treatment due to altered perceptions and perspectives. Excessive anxiety has a detrimental effect on the individual's ability to feel things deeply, and this depth can be expressed similarly due to the dual diagnosis for depression and anxiety. An individual's symptoms of mental conditions may worsen to the extent that they resort to alcohol/drug intake for relief. This may sound like a catch-22 situation, but the Best dual diagnosis treatment centre can treat both the substance use disorder and the co-occurring mental disorder.

  • Indulging in activities that harm oneself and others.
  • Lying or stealing

  • Quitting drug or alcohol intake and falling back to it repeatedly.
  • Repenting habits and reciting them repeatedly.
  • Searching and indulging in higher levels of intoxication through stronger alcohol or drug intake.
  • Attempting reduction of drug/alcohol doses and trying to quit.

 Individuals that are psychologically disturbed might also exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Isolating self from loved ones and turning away from the support offered.
  • Experiencing hallucinations or delusions
  • The individual feels hopelessness, worthlessness, or despair
  • Upholding high-standard orders while performing activities as a way to soothe anxiety.
  • Struggling with maintaining long-term friendships, relationships, and professional commitments due to mood swings or behavioural issues.
  • Drastic changes in energy levels and mood.
  • Unhealthy coping mechanisms such as drug intake, risk-causing activities for stress management.

 All these signs serve as an indicator of seeking help from a Dual-Diagnosis Recovery Centre. Mental health professionals at these centres evaluate the individual's substance use disorder and other symptoms before devising an individualized treatment plan for them. 

What You Need To Know About  Dual Diagnosis Recovery Program

Individuals suffering from dual diagnosis respond best to combination treatment. There is a huge difference between substance use disorder and other mental health disorders. 

Mental health disorders and substance use disorders are frequently diagnosed as:

  • The major contributor to isolation or a mood disorder
  • Anxiety disorder includes obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, or generalized anxiety disorder.
  • Personality disorders such as antisocial or borderline personality disorders result in difficulty maintaining relationships.
  • Eating disorders

Dual diagnosis treatment works effectively only when it addresses co-occurring disorders. The intensity of the treatment depends on the severity of the condition. Dual Diagnosis Rehab Centre is beneficial for these patients as they receive round-the-clock intensive care. The continuous monitoring at these centres significantly reduces the chances of relapse that can happen in out-patient treatment. Medicines are prescribed to relieve coexisting anxiety symptoms, hallucinations, mood swings, agitations, etc. Individuals hold misconceptions regarding these medications, but these medications are by no means detrimental to the substance use disorder treatment. Educating oneself about mental health issues and substance use disorders is essential for recovery. Knowing one's symptoms and behaviours can help you gain confidence and offer chances to change. The loved ones of the individual suffering from dual diagnosis can also seek family counselling and 12-step meetings through a dual diagnosis recovery program.
