Fighting a drug or alcohol addiction is challenging for everyone. This is especially true when the addiction co-occurs with a mental health disorder. Luckily, many facilities offer programs that treat both addiction and mental health disorders at the same time. Medical professionals call the simultaneous treatment of addiction and mental illness a Dual Diagnosis Treatment program.
Often, mental illness and addiction go hand in hand. Mental illness may be a symptom or cause of the addiction itself. At Lake Villa, we firmly believe in the effectiveness of a Dual Diagnosis Treatment center, as the symptoms of addiction and mental illness often overlap.
