A dual diagnosis is made when someone with an addiction also has a mental health disorder. The addiction and the mental disorder are two separate illnesses that require separate treatment. Also known as co-occurring disorders, effective treatment for dual diagnosis requires both conditions to be addressed and treated at the same time. Any program intended to address one condition must be developed with the other in mind.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers Hauppauge specializes in treating addictions and mental health disorders separately, but simultaneously through a collaborative effort between treatment teams.
Medical detox is the first step to successful treatment. Detox is followed by comprehensive therapies that address the addiction and the mental illness, and medications may be administered to treat the mental disorder. The successful completion of treatment is followed by an aftercare program that helps maintain good mental health and prevent a relapse of the addiction.

Recent studies have shown that co-occurring disorders are more prevalent than once believed. About one-third of people with any type of mental illness and one-half of those with a severe mental illness also have a substance addiction. Conversely, about one-third of people with an addiction to alcohol and one-half of those who are addicted to drugs also have a mental illness.
Depression and anxiety are the mental health disorders most commonly associated with substance addiction. Those with clinical depression often use drugs or alcohol to mask depressive symptoms. Those with a generalized anxiety disorder may use these substances to alleviate anxiety and ease the discomfort of social interaction.
Three of the most common treatment methods for dual diagnoses are psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy, and behavioral therapy.
Most treatment programs utilize group, family, and individual therapy during treatment.
In general, inpatient treatment is best for those with co-occurring disorders due to the complex relationship between addiction and mental illness. These conditions requires intense treatment away from the stress and triggers of the outside world.
After the treatment program is successfully completed, an individualized aftercare program is set in place to help promote long-term recovery from both the addiction and the mental illness.
Using these strategies can increase the likelihood of maintaining a healthy, sober lifestyle.
