Dual diagnosis refers to co-occurring substance use dependence and mental health disorders. A person may develop an addiction which then causes the development of a mental health disorder. Adversely, an individual may attempt to self-medicate a mental health disorder by abusing substances. In either case, a vicious cycle can form where one feels trapped in addiction and unable to gain control of their life.
At San Diego Detox, we will help you break that cycle. We understand that both issues must be addressed simultaneously to achieve long-term healing. Our staff is prepared with evidence-based mental health therapies to address any mental disorders. We will help you detox from addictive substances and learn to overcome mental health challenges, leading you back to a healthy lifestyle.
