Dual Diagnosis and Chemical Dependency

Patients who have a dual diagnosis require treatment for both mental health disorders and substance abuse issues. The two conditions are commonly associated with each other and often amplify the negative effects of each. That’s why it’s important to provide mental health care and drug and alcohol treatment simultaneously.

Dual diagnosis care at TMC Behavioral Health Center focuses on providing patients with psychiatric stabilization. Among the combinations of dual diagnosis that healthcare professionals treat at the facility include:

  • Alcoholism and depression
  • Opioid dependence and anxiety disorder
