Dual Diagnosis Treatment Programs in Northern California

Many people who have substance abuse problems also struggle with mental disorders.  Known as dual diagnosis, mental disorders and substance abuse problems often go hand in hand with one resulting in the other.  People who have both mental disorders and addiction issues are more likely to relapse after treatment, particularly if both the mental disorder and substance abuse issues are not adequately addressed.  When selecting a facility for your dual diagnosis treatment, look to find a center that understands and successfully treats both concerns.

  • Addicted person takes drug or alcohol
  • The addicted person’s brain is flooded by neurotransmitters
  • A feeling of being high is experienced
  • The brain attempts to rebalance chemically by purging neurotransmitters, including those that were naturally produced and stored by the body
  • The high feeling ends and the user begins to come down
  • Due to the depleted levels of neurotransmitters, there is difficulty experiencing pleasurable feelings resulting in depression and anxiety
  • Addicted person takes drugs or alcohol
