A dual diagnosis is where an individual has another mental health condition along with their addiction. This could be a problem like depression or anxiety disorder. This other condition may have been what drove the individual into addiction in the first place. It is also possible for people to develop a dual diagnosis as a result of their substance abuse. If people do have a mental health problem that they have carried with them into recovery it is vital that they seek treatment for it. Otherwise they will struggle to find real happiness away from the substance abuse.
