Dual Diagnosis

A dual diagnosis occurs when an individual is affected by both chemical dependency and an emotional or psychiatric illness. MSCC’s Dual Diagnosis Program combines the treatments for psychiatric illness and chemical dependency, allowing both problems to be addressed simultaneously. This means acknowledging and treating the complex relationship between these two problems and allowing individuals to focus on their recovery needs for both chemical dependency and psychiatric illness.
