What is Dual Diagnosis?
Dual diagnosis is a modern term that acknowledges the simultaneous occurrence of a mental health and substance abuse issue. Dual diagnosis is not new—but the term is a breakthrough because it recognizes the unique issues that people have when they deal with both problems.
The medical community has increased study in the area of dual diagnosis and has introduced treatments for people suffering from both mental illness and substance abuse.
We treat people dealing with these addiction and mental health converns
- Bipolar disorder
- Personality disorder
- Eating disorders
- Sex addiction
The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates that approximately 7.9 million Americans suffer from mental illness and addiction simultaneously. This 2014 data reflects how common co-occurring conditions and dual diagnosis is in the United States.
- When a mental illness is present with addiction, it’s often referred to as a co-occurring disorder. For dual diagnosis rehabs in Florida, the most common types of co-occurring disorders associated with addiction and substance abuse are mood disorders and anxiety disorders, as it’s more likely people with these symptoms would find relief from their illnesses in drugs or alcohol or feel the need to cover their symptoms with drugs or alcohol.
- If you or a loved one is seeking help for alcohol or drug addiction, please call us today 866-349-1770.
How Does Dual Diagnosis Develop? (Why Me?)
Certain types of mental illnesses are more likely to be part of a dual diagnosis than others. While the most common mental illnesses associated with dual diagnosis are mood disorders, several others rank highly on the list of most commonly associated with addiction.
Most commonly associated with addiction
Physical: Experiencing a trauma or accident can trigger mental illnesses such as PTSD or other problems the same way a traumatic experience can trigger the use of drugs and alcohol.
Sociological: The same societal pressures that may provide the basis of illnesses such as eating disorders or gambling addictions can also be a factor in developing drug or alcohol dependency issues.
Environmental and Hereditary: Some mental illnesses are inherited, the same way alcoholism or drug abuse is hereditary. Individuals who grew up in an environment with mental illness or addiction are also at risk to develop the same behaviors.
Following the Latest Research
As research continues for these co-occurring disorders, we learn more about what causes them and how to best treat them using an outpatient or inpatient rehab with our Dual Diagnosis Treatment at Beachside. Our therapists are committed to staying on top of the latest research and implementing innovative treatments that are customized to your individual needs.
At Beachside, your Dual Diagnosis is an “individual diagnosis” because we provide tailored rehab programs for every client.
Why Treat Addiction and Mental Health Together?
We know that substance abuse and mental illness are linked to the same root cause. Social, biological and environmental factors cause a break in healthy brain development. For some, a mental health illness may find them seeking drugs or alcohol to find pleasure. For others, an addiction may trigger a mental health issue like depression, and therefore feed a dependence on substances. The addiction fills a gap. By addressing mental health and then substance abuse at Beachway, you can truly break free from the rollercoaster of psychological and physical ups and downs.
When mental health issues are pitted as a root cause of addiction and not treated in a dual diagnosis program, individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder can feel trapped by their mental health issue. They want to recover from an addiction, but their mental health disease becomes a justification—and this mindset can bond a person to addiction. Recovering with treatment that only addresses substance abuse just provides a band-aid. The deeper mental health issues must be addressed.
If you’re struggling with a mental health disorder and addiction, you need Dual Diagnosis Rehab that takes into consideration the impact of both and treats the diseases together.
What are the Signs of Dual Diagnosis?
There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment program for addiction and mental health. We recognize and appreciate the individuality of what brings each person to Beachside.

Innovative Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Mental illness can affect anyone; therefore, a dual diagnosis can be present in anyone. However, there are certain groups or types of people who may be more at risk of developing these issues. According to data collected by SAMHSA, the homeless and veterans are among the most high-risk groups of people to be affected by co-occurring conditions. In veterans, the issue is PTSD. It’s common for veterans to use drugs or alcohol when suffering from this disorder as a way to cope with the uncomfortable and frightening symptoms. Homelessness also often comes with many types of behavioral health issues that occur in addition to addiction.
With that being said, mental illness does not discriminate and can affect anyone in multiple different ways. When it comes to diagnosing mental illness and co-occurring disorders, the physical symptoms are usually so subtle they can be easily missed. Trusting a professional who is trained and experienced in dual diagnosis to recommend a treatment program is the best way to ensure a successful recovery from addiction and co-occurring disorders.
