What Exactly is Dual-Diagnosis?
Why Dual-Diagnosis Treatment Matters
Dual Diagnosis is a term used for those who suffer from a psychological or behavioral illness concurrent with alcohol or drug addiction. In most cases, one condition contributes to, or worsens, the symptoms of the other condition. For example, if you have a psychological disorder, you may start using drugs or alcohol to cope with their symptoms. Or alternatively, your substance abuse may be a catalyst for the symptoms of an underlying mental condition.
According to DualDiagnosis.org, 4 million Americans over the age of 18 who have a mental health disorder also struggle with a co-occurring alcohol or drug dependency. However, only a small fraction of these people seek professional help to overcome their addiction and receive treatment for the illness. It is important that you reach out due to the severe effects both conditions can have on you. We know it will be hard to reach out, but help is available. At Quest 2 Recovery, we offer a dual-diagnosis program located in beautiful Southern California. Our program consists of different therapies to allow you to get to the root of your addiction and beat treated for both conditions simultaneously.

The purpose of detoxification is to help you get off your substance of choice in a safe, medically supervised, and comfortable environment. This allows us to help you by minimizing the severity of withdrawal symptoms and improving your comfort while you’re staying in our detox program. In our detox program, you may be administered tapering amounts of the substance, as well as some medicines to relieve withdrawal symptoms.
Psychotherapy is an essential part of our dual diagnosis treatment program. The purpose is to educate you about your addiction and illness and then see how we can help you change any behaviors that may be contributing to your addiction/mental illness.
When you attend our dual-diagnosis program, you will learn efficient ways to cope with your mental illness instead of using your drug addiction. We get that you probably feel isolated as that is what any mental disorder along with addiction can do. We will show you you’re not alone with support groups.
