Dual diagnosis is any mental condition along with drug or alcohol addiction. Did you know according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, roughly 50% of individuals with a substance use disorder are also dual diagnosed with a mental illness? Alcohol is a great masquerader of mental illness.
At what point do you identify whether you have a dual diagnosis or it’s the alcohol? Not everyone has the same experience. Listen in at the Sober Coffee Shop as Mike and Glenn discuss their experiences with co-occurring disorders and their dual diagnosis, what path they took to sobriety and treatment, and where they are at today.
