Co-occurring disorders

Also known as: Dual diagnosis

Some people have an alcohol or drug problem and a mental health problem. Doctors call this a dual diagnosis. You need to treat both problems to fully recover. Mental health problems that can happen with alcohol or drug abuse include depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and schizophrenia.

Providence Behavioral Health Services offers a comprehensive range of treatments to help people recover and regain control of their lives. Our treatment programs help people develop management and coping skills to deal with emotional crises or destructive behaviors. We evaluate the use of medications to help stabilize thought processes, and we provide group support for families, patients and other friends.  For critical situations, our inpatient and outpatient programs treat a wide variety of mental and substance use disorders with safe and compassionate care.
