An addiction to drugs and/or alcohol is a huge challenge that some people face. Managing a mental illness can also bring many obstacles to a person’s life. But when you combine these two situations, often it makes you feel completely alone, depressed and hopeless. We can help you if you have a dual diagnosis and show you that it is not only dark days ahead for you. There is a bright future ahead for you, if you let us help you end your addiction and manage your illness.
The mental health issues and the addiction have their own specific symptoms in dual diagnosis, which often get in the way of your ability to function and to make decisions. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for those with mental health issues to also face addiction problems. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, about 50% of individuals with severe mental disorders are also affected by substance abuse, and 37% of alcohol abusers and 53% of drug abusers also have at least one serious mental illness.
