What does dual diagnosis treatment entail?

Dual diagnosis equally treats both your addiction and your mental health issue. Time is equally divided as both are important to address as they feed off one another. A specialized therapist will work intensively with you on a one-on-one basis to explore the connection between your addiction and your mental health issue. You will together find ways to break the cycle and better deal with each issue and recognize when one issue is feeding the other to avoid the problem of them feeding off one another and find healthier ways to address both.
