You're about to discover how to overcome the challenges of dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis is a common phenomenon affecting the modern-day societies of the world. What is really responsible for it? There are a few reasons why many societies are witnessing the problem. But what is the meaning of dual diagnosis? How do we deal with the challenges associated with dual diagnosis? To start with, dual diagnosis can be referred to as a condition that brings about the simultaneous existence of two mental illnesses at the same time, a problem that assumes a dual nature. This condition appears to be something that can further lead to a more heterogeneous problem. However, the issue has led to many debates whether it is possible for someone to suffer dual problems and yet still be refer to them as a single problem. Experience has shown that it is very possible for an individual to suffer problems that assume a dual nature. For example we have dual diagnosis manifesting in critical conditions like alcoholism and depression. This is a very good example of a problem that has to do with dual diagnosis. The issue can also be seen in more serious mental illnesses, like schizophrenia and psychosis. It can also manifest in conditions that have to do with substance misuse when it leads to the development of certain disorders, for instance when an individual overuses cannabis. Other forms of disorders that can lead to dual diagnosis problems are panic disorders, generalized anxiety disorders, and overdependence on drugs. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cathy Beard.
