Having one type of disorder can be hard enough, unfortunately sometimes people may suffer 2 or more disorders at the same time. This is called dual diagnosis disorders. Those suffering with dual diagnosis disorders experience not only the pain of chemical dependency and addiction but also a co-occurring psychiatric illness such as Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Personality Disorders, Gambling Addiction, and Eating Disorders. Fortunately, dual diagnosis treatment in Delray Beach is available through The Delray Center for Healing.
Our dual diagnosis program not only treats addiction to drugs but the co-occurring illness as well which is done for a few reasons. One of the best reasons would be the fact that one disorder may cause the other to spring up such as depression causing someone to start using drugs to self medicate. This is turn could make both disorders even worse. Because this is the case it can be much harder to treat a patient who has been dual diagnosed as they have to be treated for two types of illnesses instead of just one. At times the symptoms associated with a dual diagnosis can overlap and seem like 1 disorder making diagnosis and treatment more difficult.
