Dual Diagnosis for Addiction Treatment
Dual diagnosis is designed to get to the core of the matter when it comes to Florida addiction treatment. It ensures that each client will get adequate treatment for their substance abuse problem, but also that any underlying mental health concern will be recognized and treated at the same time. Many times, these conditions arrive prior to the drug addiction, but other times they’ve developed as a direct result of it.
The revelation for clients to discover they are challenged with something on top of their addictions can be met with fright. However, it’s important to know that a correct diagnosis also represents the vital first step toward recovery. At the same time, gaining a healthy mental and emotional balance will only make it easier to get a grip on addictions to lead a fruitful life of happiness and well-being.
Dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder is the term used when a person has a mood disorder like depression or bipolar disorder and alcohol or drug abuse. This individual who has a dual diagnosis has two separate conditions, and each condition needs its own treatment plan. Both can be performed simultaneously in Florida drug rehab.

Why Dual Diagnosis in Addiction Treatment?
Studies indicate that about half of all people battling drug or alcohol addiction also suffer from some form of a mental health condition. This is called dual diagnosis, which increases the effectiveness of Florida drug rehab by ensuring that all contributing factors are quickly identified, and more importantly, properly treated in warm, supportive atmosphere. At Simple Path Recovery, we believe that if the client can identify the underlying issue (with or without help) and treat it concurrently with their addiction treatment, the client’s odds of a successful, long-term recovery are vastly improved.
During the treatment episode each patient is designated to a treatment team which includes a physician, nurse, and primary licensed therapist. This addiction treatment team is responsible for assessing and working with each patient to create an individualized plan of care and continuing care recommendations designed to support continuous sobriety.
The Benefits of Florida Dual Diagnosis Treatment
While addiction has many common denominators, no two people are the same as far as their behavioral health challenges. It only makes sense that effective approaches to treatment would also be as individualized as the people they help. What works well for one person might not be the best solution for another at all. Treating our clients individually with the unique circumstances they present is one of the trademarks that helps us achieve positive client outcomes.
