Drug Rehab and Dual Diagnosis
It’s very common for people who have problems with drugs and alcohol to have underlying chemical imbalance that results in mood disorders. People may be using alcohol and drugs to self-medicate in an attempt to control mood swings resulting from depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder. Someone who has a chemical imbalance and is simultaneously addicted to drugs or alcohol is said to have “Dual Diagnosis,” also known as co-occurring disorders. If you’re not sure if you have dual diagnosis, its important to attend get a clinical diagnosis and tailored treatment at a drug rehab for dual diagnosis.
