Is Dual Diagnosis Treatment Right for You?

Studies show that while high rates of substance abuse exist in individuals with psychiatric issues, high rates of psychiatric symptoms also exist in individuals with substance abuse disorders. So, it's a double-edged sword and nothing to take lightly when considering treatment. If you are unsure whether or not you need treatment or whether or not you have a dual diagnosis, here are five signs that can tell you whether it's time to seek treatment:
  • You use drugs to escape psychological problems
  • You have a history of mental illness
  • Trying to quit the drug makes you angry, suicidal, or violent
  • Drugs make you feel like yourself
  • Mental illness runs in your family
If you are disconnecting from your social life, then you may be struggling with a mental illness. However, if you are also battling substance use, you may be experiencing different symptoms like changes in your regular habits, poor grades, changes in your physical appearance, and secretive behavior. Our treatment team understands that every person has different experiences and emotions when facing substance use and mental illness. Like many boys, you may be trying to hide your problems or having trouble recognizing that you have a problem at all.
