Dual Diagnosis

What is dual diagnosis?

If you have a dual diagnosis, that means that you have both a mental disorder and a substance use disorder (SUD), either with alcohol or drugs. A dual diagnosis is a type of comorbidity, which is when someone has two disorders at the same time. Another name for this is co-occurring disorders.

Mental and substance use disorders often occur together. Many people who develop SUDs are also diagnosed with mental disorders.
