Dual diagnosis treatment addresses symptoms of mental health disorders and addiction. Co-occurring disorders are common. In fact, over 50% of people who have a substance use disorder have at least one mental health disorder.
Co-occurring disorders are especially prevalent among teens. Adolescents with mental health disorders are at a greater risk for developing a substance use problem. In addition, substances can often exacerbate mental health issues.
The Importance of Treating Co-Occurring Disorders
When seeking treatment, it’s important to choose a facility that specializes in dual diagnoses in order to address symptoms of both disorders.
Some healthcare facilities may only be able to treat one disorder. At Pyramid Healthcare, our clinicians and counselors are certified in the treatment of co-occurring mental health disorders. This means that all of our clients can receive the comprehensive care they need. This greatly increases the chance for recovery and allows clients to receive treatment at one facility.
