Dual Diagnosis Interventions in BC and Alberta
In many cases, loved ones who have an addiction actually have a dual diagnosis conditions with one condition being a mental health condition. This dual diagnosis is a co-occurring psychiatric disorder. It can make it challenging to get the right treatment for them. Many of these co-occurring disorders are anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder or even bipolar. These disorders can lead to a feeling of helplessness, fear, fatigue and more. As the addiction creeps in the person begins to use harmful substances in order to manage their own symptoms. This self-medicating is very dangerous and can actually exacerbate the mental health condition.
A dual diagnosis is a fairly new phenomenon. Before the 90s, addiction and mental health issues were both treated separately. According to studies, it’s far more effective to use a holistic approach and use an integrated treatment for the dual diagnosis. Intervention is frequently the best method to use to prevent a life-threatening addiction with serious consequences and get the patient into treatment.
