Treatment for Dual Diagnosis

Eagleview offers Treatment for Dual Diagnosis in Iowa

Dual diagnosis, also known as co-occurring disorders, refers to the presence of both mental health and substance use issues in an individual. According to a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), approximately 50% of individuals with a mental health disorder will also experience a substance use disorder at some point in their lives.* This means that someone with dual diagnosis is struggling with two separate but interconnected conditions that require specialized treatment and care.

At Eagle View, we can care for patients diagnosed with a primary mental health condition which is further complicated through the dual diagnosis of substance use disorder.

Dual Diagnosis Facts from NAMI – National Alliance on Mental Illness**

  • Those with mental illness are more susceptible to addiction.
  • Substance use is twice as prevalent among adults with mental illness—because of the desire to self-medicate symptoms.
  • Some people with mental illness may not even know that their substance use constitutes as a disorder.
  • Prolonged use of substances increases the underlying risk for mental illness.

CONDITIONS COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH DUAL DIAGNOSIS OR CO-OCCURING DISORDERS

Some of the most common mental health conditions associated with dual diagnosis include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, PTSD, schizophrenia, and ADHD. These conditions often coexist with substance use disorders, creating unique opportunities in treatment and recovery.

People with dual diagnosis issues may use alcohol, opioids, prescription drugs, and benzodiazepines to self-medicate mental health issues and this creates a vicious cycle. Let Eagleview Behavioral Health help break this pattern.
