A dual diagnosis typically indicates a situation where a person is diagnosed with both a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder such as anxiety or depression. Oftentimes, drug and alcohol abuse are symptoms of an underlying mental health issue. As these disorders interplay, it can make recovery difficult. However, uncovering the root cause of addiction through addiction treatment therapies can increase the chances of recovering from the co-occurring disorders.
You do not have to go through the complexities of a dual diagnosis alone. Our staff at Soledad House realize that understanding the unique issues that come with a dual diagnosis is key to recovery.

What Is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
Our dual diagnosis treatment program at Soledad House offers a comprehensive approach to treatment for individuals who struggle with a mental health disorder and a co-occurring substance use disorder. Since each road to recovery is unique, our program is multifaceted to meet the specific needs of any person. Oftentimes, mental health disorder symptoms can appear from abusing alcohol or substances. For instance, if someone is abusing alcohol and experiences withdrawal symptoms, they could temporarily feel alcohol-induced anxiety or depression. To avoid these negative feelings, the individual will typically continue to use alcohol. Over time, using alcohol to alleviate withdrawal symptoms will turn into a dangerous addiction that will amplify a diminishing state of mental well-being.
Our approach to dual diagnosis treatment is through integrated intervention, which typically indicates that mental health professionals and addiction specialists simultaneously monitor co-occurring disorders. When both disorders are addressed together, a personalized treatment plan can be created to meet the specific needs of an individual with a dual diagnosis. Examples of mental health treatment that are involved with a dual diagnosis at Soledad House include:
- EMDR therapy
- Anxiety therapy program
- Cognitive-behavioral program
- Exercise therapy
- Depression treatment program
- Trauma therapy program
