What is Dual Diagnosis?
For those struggling with bipolar disorder, there are two sides of their recovery they must be conscious of; their sobriety/recovery and their mental condition. One usually can’t exist stably without the other. Both must be treated accordingly and it’s very important that patients with co-occurring conditions try to seek professional help for both. This means participating in an integrative drug and alcohol treatment program that specializes in treating patients with dual diagnosis.
