Dual Diagnosis is difficult to diagnose because the symptoms often overlap. An estimated 7.9 million Americans suffer from both addiction and mental illness.
Although the short-term effects of illicit drug or alcohol use may mask the primary mental ailment, this overwhelmingly leads an already struggling person down a dangerous path of addiction.
Substance use becomes part of life, allowing individuals to function ‘normally.’ Beyond the standard substance abuse treatment options, a supportive and dedicated team, such as The Key Addiction Treatment Center in Santa Cruz, CA, can make a critical difference in understanding why one becomes addicted.
Our treatment program for Dual Diagnosis will address the root cause of your behavioral or mental health concerns, aligning you with the proper addiction treatment program for a smooth and lasting road to recovery.
