Dual Diagnosis Programs for Heroin Addiction

When you’re struggling from an addiction to a drug like heroin that is both physically and psychologically addictive, you need treatment that addresses both areas for successful recovery. Dual Diagnosis drug treatment is effective in treating multiple drug addictions, but with heroin’s intensity, it’s even more essential.  The goal of Dual Diagnosis treatment is to treat mental health problems that may be linked to drug use.  While psychological components of addiction are often addressed in all drug rehabs, staff at Dual Diagnosis facilities have specific psychological training and are more than just addiction counselors.

Who Needs Dual Diagnosis Drug Treatment

If you’re considering Dual Diagnosis drug treatment, you’ll benefit if you truly have a mental health condition like depression, schizophrenia or another diagnosis that is treatable. Recognize that there’s a difference between having a true mental health condition and struggling with your mental health. You may deal with stress; while that can contribute to your addiction, it does not require Dual Diagnosis treatment. A diagnosable condition on the other hand requires this type of drug treatment as the mental health problem can contribute to drug use and the drug use can lead to poor mental health. If only one of these things is treated, it makes relapse of drug use almost inevitable.

You can talk to an intake counselor about your need for Dual Diagnosis treatment where specialized care is provided.
