Dual Diagnosis treatment for those with addiction and co-occurring mental disorders is fast becoming the standard mode of treatment. Dual diagnosis, in which both problems are dealt with concurrently, has proved to be more successful than either sequential treatment ( in which first one problem is addressed and then the other) and parallel treatment ( where the patient receives treatment for both the mental disorder and the addiction at the same time, but through different practitioners). Under the guidance of SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), more and more treatment facilities are offering dual diagnosis treatment.
Dual Diagnosis treatment promotes high involvement from the individual and his/her family in the treatment. The individual undergoing treatment is instrumental in deciding what shape the treatment plan will take; this requires a self-assessment of their needs and determining how those needs should be met. The treatment includes group therapy and peer support, as well as family therapy and consultations. If you are struggling with addiction and a mental disorder, we recommend that you find out more about the dual diagnosis method of treatment.
