Are you a parent searching for a boys’ dual diagnosis treatment? Before you choose a boys’ dual diagnosis treatment center, you should understand what dual diagnosis means. The National Alliance on Mental Illness(1) reports that around 9.5 million Americans struggle with a dual diagnosis.
Dual diagnosis, also called co-occurring disorders, means your son has both a mental illness and a substance use disorder. In many cases, one causes the other, starting a vicious feedback loop. For example, your son may struggle with alcohol use that leads to depression or anxiety, which in turn leads to drug dependence. By figuring out which condition causes the other, our staff can form an individual treatment plan for your son.
