Florida Dual Diagnosis
What is Dual Diagnosis?
What Are the Symptoms of a
Symptoms of a dual diagnosis will vary based on the co-occurring disorder a person is suffering from, but may range from suicidal thoughts or tendencies, anti-social behavior, and a lack of interest in activities or hobbies that were once enjoyed. Additional dual diagnosis symptoms may include:
- Sudden mood or behavioral changes
- Risky or unsafe behavior
- Lack of self-control
Dual diagnoses are unfortunately extremely common, with an estimated eight million cases in the US each year. Roughly one in four people who suffer from a serious mental illness end up developing problems with substance abuse.
A dual diagnosis could make recovery extremely difficult to achieve if any co-occurring conditions are not addressed. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction and is showing any of the above symptoms, dual diagnosis treatment may be the best option for lasting results. By identifying these co-occurring mental disorders that can often fuel or worsen addiction, we can help treat the root cause and create a path to recovery. Beachway offers dual diagnosis screenings at our West Palm Beach rehabilitation center to help identify any underlying conditions that could be contributing to substance abuse issues.
