Substance-Related Disorders

Are you or a loved one suffering from a dependence on drugs or alcohol?  Do you also have a co-occurring psychiatric disorder such as depression, bipolar disorder, or psychosis?

 

Dual Diagnosis

The term “dual diagnosis” refers to someone who has both a substance dependency and a psychiatric disorder.
 

Individual Approach

Treating substance abuse requires an individualized approach to recovery, particularly when you have a co-occurring psychiatric illness.  Often, the symptoms of substance abuse and psychiatric illness intensify and confound each other.  For example, substance abuse or withdrawal from substances can hide or mimic psychiatric symptoms. Untreated psychiatric disorders may lead to substance abuse.  Therefore, it is very important to seek treatment from someone knowledgeable of both substance abuse and psychiatric illnesses.
