This might not be the first time you’ve heard about the term “dual diagnosis,” but do you know what this means?
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, dual diagnosis “is a term for when someone experiences a mental illness and a substance use disorder simultaneously.” This disorder is pretty self-explanatory, hence its name.
Now, our team at Skyward Treatment is always looking for ways to educate our readers and prospective patients when it comes to the dangers of addiction and the beauty of recovery.
In this article, we’re going to discuss everything we need to know about dual diagnosis.
Some of the most common dual diagnoses can be in the following forms:
- Anxiety Disorders and Cocaine Addiction
- Depression and Heroin Addiction
- Anti-Social Personality Disorders and Alcoholism
While this is still on a case-to-case basis, it’s best to keep in mind that we should be offering support and love to those suffering from dual diagnosis. Remember that it’s hard to suffer from one disorder, let alone two, right?
Here at Skyward Treatment, we offer countless programs that can help each patient with the disorders they’re suffering from. Although if you’re suffering from dual diagnosis disorder, then the following programs could be recommended:
- Medically Assisted Detox
- Intensive Outpatient Programs
- Psychiatric Treatments
- Alcohol Addiction Treatment

It’s best to understand that these treatments are vital to ensure that you’re going to get on that road toward addiction recovery and that you’ll get the help you need.
