Dual Diagnosis Treatment in Seattle, WA

A dual diagnosis means that you are dealing with underlying emotional challenges as well as your addiction to drugs and alcohol. Treating dual diagnoses requires a specialized experience and training. Island Assessment and Counseling offers dual diagnosis treatment at our Oak Harbor location and surrounding areas in Washington State.

What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

A dual diagnosis indicates that someone has an underlying emotional issue in addition to addiction. This may include anxiety, depression, anger, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and other common mental health conditions. By simultaneously treating the addiction and the underlying emotional and mental health issues, we offer a more comprehensive solution to drug and alcohol abuse.

How Does Dual Diagnosis Treatment Work?

The first step in dual diagnosis treatment is to identify any underlying mental health conditions or issues that lead to your use and abuse of drugs and alcohol. Our mental health professionals perform an assessment that helps uncover these problems. We explain our findings and then recommend a course of counseling and support that helps you learn new coping skills.

Who Can Benefit from Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Most people addicted to drugs and alcohol have a mental health condition that either existed before the drug and alcohol use or resulted from it. Dual diagnosis treatment is quickly becoming the norm in drug and alcohol rehabilitation because it works extremely well.

What are the Signs that Someone Needs Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

If you or someone you know uses, abuses or is addicted to drugs or alcohol to cope with a myriad of personal issues, dual diagnosis treatment may be the best course of action. Some of the signs that dual diagnosis treatment may be needed include:

  • Using drugs or alcohol to cope with problems
  • Family history of mental health issues
  • Anger, violence or suicidal thoughts when trying to quit using drugs and alcohol
  • Personal history of mental health issues
  • Feeling of normalcy when using drugs or alcohol
