What Is Dual Diagnosis?

what-is-dual-diagnosis

Some people struggle with mental disorders, while others with alcohol or drug problems. However, there are times when these two conditions can manifest in one person at the same time. When this happens, the person may likely be experiencing a co-occurring disorder or a dual diagnosis.

People who abuse different drugs or substances would benefit from Substance Abuse Counseling in Ohio.

Meanwhile, people with mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, and others can benefit from Mental Health Counseling.

However, some people have both of those issues occurring at the same time. Addiction is a problem that rarely exists in a vacuum. People are particularly vulnerable to substance abuse when they have other mental health issues or experience events that cause emotional problems.

When this happens, either of the two types of Counseling Services mentioned above would be ineffective. For example, if we successfully treat substance abuse, there is still a high chance of relapse due to the underlying cause. That’s why we are recommending a dual diagnosis treatment above all others.

Managing substance abuse may already be a challenge in itself. To top it off, suffering from a mental health problem, such as anxiety, depression, and others, may make seeking Substance Disorder Treatment in Reynoldsburg, Ohio more complicating.

Here’s where we at WCAP Counseling can intervene. Our professionals have the training and the experience necessary to deal with substance abuse triggered by underlying causes.

If you or your loved one need intervention right now, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 614-239-9965 or send us an email at info@wcapcounseling.org. We will be able to provide you with the counseling that you need.
