A Complex and Multilayered Mental Health Issue
Dual-diagnosis disorder is characterized by the presence of chemical dependency and a separate and distinct mental health issue, like depression, anxiety or trauma-related disorder. Addiction rarely occurs in a vacuum. Very often, there is an underlying mental health issue linked to its origins. It’s also not uncommon for prolonged and untreated substance abuse to give way to long-term psychological conditions. Addiction causes dramatic changes in the brain’s chemistry, sometimes requiring intense and targeted dual-focused therapy to restore its natural function. RU Encore provides expert and compassionate dual-diagnosis treatment for all types of co-occurring disorders. You don’t have to go through this alone.
