Dual Disorders
A dual disorder is when two psychiatric conditions co-occur, e.g., depression and a substance use disorder. There is a growing body of evidence indicating that dual disorders are increasingly common, complex and interdependent - meaning that having a psychiatric condition increases the likelihood of developing substance use disorder - and vice versa. The National Institute of Mental Health estimated that 45% of individuals with alcohol use disorders and 72% of individuals with a drug use disorder had at least one co-occurring psychiatric disorder.

Optimal treatment demands that both conditions be addressed and treated. At RiverMend Health, our comprehensive dual disorder treatment program specializes in helping those with a dual diagnosis return to a healthy and productive life.
