Establishing an accurate diagnosis for individuals in addiction and mental health settings is an important and multifaceted aspect of the treatment process. Clinicians must distinguish between acute primary psychiatric disorders and psychiatric symptoms that are caused by the abuse of drugs or alcohol. To do so, clinicians must obtain a thorough history of alcohol and drug use as well as psychiatric symptoms and disorders.

Dual diagnosis is a term that is used to describe the presence of a coexisting substance use disorder and mental health disorder. There are several possible relationships that can exist between mental health disorders and drug or alcohol use. The use of drugs and/or alcohol can induce, worsen, or diminish symptoms of mental health disorders, which can, in the end, make the process of accurately diagnosing a disorder much more complicated.

The primary relationships between drug and/or alcohol use and mental health symptoms or disorders are described in the following:

  • Drug and/or alcohol use can cause the onset of mental illness symptoms and can mimic mental health disorders. Acute and chronic substance use can elicit symptoms associated with almost any mental health disorder. The type, severity, and duration of these symptoms are usually related to the specific dynamics of the substance abuse (i.e. the type, severity, and duration of the substance use itself).
  • Acute and chronic substance abuse can prompt the development, provoke the reemergence, or worsen the severity of mental health disorders.
  • The abuse of substances has the potential to mask the symptoms of mental health disorders. Some individuals may use drugs and/or alcohol to alleviate the distressing symptoms of mental illness or to ameliorate the unpleasant side effects of certain medications that may have been used to treat the symptoms of mental illness.
  • Going through drug or alcohol withdrawal can induce symptoms of mental illness or mimic mental health disorders. Withdrawal occurs when a person has developed a tolerance to or dependence on a substance and then suddenly ceases that use. As the body attempts to readjust to functioning without the presence of the substance(s), unpleasant withdrawal symptoms can occur.
  • Mental health disorders and substance use disorders can coexist. One disorder may prompt the emergence of the other, or each disorder may exist independently. Determining whether the disorders are related (in that one caused the onset of the other) can be difficult, yet may not be of great significance when an individual has been suffering from both. For example, if an individual has bipolar disorder and developed a dependence on alcohol years prior, yet still experiences the symptoms of bipolar disorder along with a dependence to alcohol many years later, he or she has two well-developed disorders, and both disorders require treatment.
  • Mental illness behaviors can mimic behaviors associated with substance use disorders. Maladaptive and dysfunctional behaviors that are consistent with drug and/or alcohol abuse may actually have other causes, such as emotional, social, or psychiatric problems.

When individuals are suffering from a combination of a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, and they are unable to overcome their substance abuse, it can be extremely difficult (if not impossible) to fully recover from the symptoms of the mental illness. The symptoms of the mental health disorder may impair the individual’s ability and motivation to participate in addiction treatment. Or, vice versa, the presence of the substance use disorder may prohibit his or her ability to comply with the treatment guidelines that are designed to heal the mental illness symptoms. When such is the case, the ability to overcome one may be misinterpreted as signs of treatment resistance or substance use relapse, both of which can significantly hinder the recovery process.

Dual Diagnosis

As was previously mentioned, dual diagnosis is a term used to define the coexistence of a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder. For example, a cocaine addiction may exist alongside bipolar disorder, an alcohol addiction may co-occur with major depressive disorder, a heroin addiction may coexist with schizophrenia, or an addiction to prescription painkillers may present in combination with borderline personality disorder. However, these are only a few examples. Any combination of a substance use disorder(s) that co-occurs with a mental health disorder(s) is considered dual diagnosis and must be treated as such. In other words, the symptoms of both disorders must be addressed in order for true healing to occur.

Unfortunately, individuals who are suffering from mental illness are at a greater risk for suffering from substance use disorders. Additionally, these individuals are increasingly susceptible to experiencing more severe and chronic medical, emotional, and social problems. Because they are battling more than one disorder, they are consistently vulnerable to both addiction relapse and/or the worsening of their mental illness symptoms. Furthermore, addiction relapse can lead to the deterioration of mental health and, conversely, the worsening of mental illness symptoms can lead to a relapse in drug and/or alcohol abuse. When compared with individuals who are suffering from a single disorder, those with dual diagnosis frequently require longer treatment, experience more crises, and progress more gradually while in treatment.
