Dual diagnosis is characterized by the combination of drug dependence or substance addiction along with a mental disorder.

The order of these two dual-diagnosis disorders in the same person may vary. One can first develop the problem of drug or alcohol addiction followed by depression, or vice versa. At La Jolla Recovery dual diagnosis rehab, we provide evidence-based tools and therapies to support quality of life by embracing a tailored and humanistic approach that is motivated, inspiring, and tailored to the needs of our clients. Some of these unique needs can be cultural or physiological, such as LGBT and the necessity of bringing along a pet to understand the background of mental health, such as PTSD or panic disorder, to accommodate the treatment in a social setting and physical space.

It is understood that dual diagnosis symptoms from a mental illness perspective.

It is imperative to know all the information about dual diagnosis so that it is easy to identify it. It has been estimated that half of those with drug dependence are likely to fall into a mental illness. Similarly, there is a 50% chance that someone with a mental disorder can fall into an addiction to toxic substances.

Our treatment approach to dual diagnosis at La Jolla Recovery is personalized and includes dedicated social reintegration and a focus on the individual. This includes monitoring and following up with the dual-diagnosis patient in a tailored and compassionate manner. Also, dual diagnosis treatment is drug and alcohol-dependent (schizophrenia with marijuana addiction is not the same as depression with cocaine addiction). Our experience at La Jolla Recovery with mental health professionals and medication-assisted treatment makes it possible to reduce physiological stressors and create a long-term plan for success. We are looking to attend mental health disorders co-occurring with addiction, such as anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, chronic pain, and other mental illnesses. Let us be a haven for the beginning of a sustainable life with evidence-based tools.

We understand mental health and addiction treatment as a separate but integral part of recovery
