DUAL DIAGNOSIS

Description

The addictive behavior hides mental disorders such as anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, psychosis and schizophrenia, which require multidisciplinary, comprehensive and intensive treatment.

The dual diagnosis is present between 80 and 90% of people with addictions or disorders due to substance use. The early diagnosis of these symptoms and therapeutic approaches that jointly deals with addiction and the psychiatric alterations or accompanying psychological disorders is fundamental to maintain abstinence and long-term well-being. Traditional approaches to the treatment of addictions have become obsolete and have led to misconceptions that inevitably lead to the failure and suffering of patients and relatives when both clinical entities are not addressed together.

Treatment

In IVANE ADDICTIONS, we break with traditional therapeutic approaches because they are ineffective in the medium and long term. Within this specialised unit, we incorporate a specific programme for the early detection of symptoms and clinical signs for the diagnosis of mental illness into the process of detoxification and preparation for detoxification. This fact allows us to personalise the medical and psychological intervention to each particular case and adapt to the needs of each of our patients and their families.
