Signs and Symptoms of Dual Diagnosis
Mental Health and Substance Abuse Disorders can be caused by a variety of biological and environmental factors, each have varying symptoms, manifestations, and rates of progression.
Women struggling with addiction to alcohol and drugs may also be experiencing unprocessed trauma, codependency, relational and attachment disorders, depression, anxiety, bi-polar and eating disorders. It is important that women in early recovery are screened and assessed for underlying mental health issues that may be undiagnosed and might have contributed to the onset of alcoholism or drug addiction. It is not unusual for women to activate their addiction in an attempt to alleviate symptoms of an unknown disorder (self-medicating) and in turn end up with co-occurring disorders.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Mental health issues are extremely common in people with substance use disorder. When women are living with addictions and mental health disorders, the two conditions become intertwined. It is impossible to make progress without addressing both disorders simultaneously.
Casa Capri Recovery, a women-only Newport Beach dual diagnosis rehab center employs the most effective treatment methods for clients living with substance use disorder and at least one mental health issue. We offer customized treatment plans that incorporate addiction services, such as medication management and detox with psychotherapy sessions and therapeutic recreational activities.
This holistic approach supports enduring sobriety by reducing substance use and improving well-being.
Since every client has a unique personal history and set of circumstances, dual diagnosis treatment is highly individualized. At the Casa Capri Newport Beach dual diagnosis rehab center, our highly-skilled staff starts each client journey with a comprehensive assessment.
During the assessment, the staff will talk to the client about their medical history and past experiences, as well as their goals and hopes for the future. Other factors such as existing prescriptions, legal issues, or caregiving responsibilities are also considered in the process.
The Casa Capri women’s dual diagnosis treatment program also follows the recommended phased approach. This means that care is offered on a spectrum. Clients may start their journeys in the intensive 24/7 residential program. As they progress along their recovery at their own pace, supports are gradually removed until the client can navigate sobriety with minimal supervision.
Dual diagnosis applies to any individual who is simultaneously living with a mental health condition and a substance abuse issue. Since many women are misdiagnosed or underdiagnosed for multiple mental health issues, an official diagnosis is not a prerequisite. However, individuals with a dual diagnosis will display one or more maladaptive psychological symptoms.
Dual diagnosis is common in both women and men. However, the following mental health conditions are more prevalent in women who abuse substances.
- Body dysmorphia, bulimia, anorexia, and other eating disorder
- Mood disorders, including depression and bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Personality disorders, including borderline personality disorder
- Compulsive behaviors
Untreated mental health problems can lead to self-medicating with drugs or alcohol. This can spiral into addiction. Since the substance temporarily numbs the symptoms of the condition, many women continue using despite the physical and social problems their addiction may cause.
Additionally, substance use can aggravate or even trigger mental health issues. For example, alcohol overconsumption can cause neurological changes that worsen depressive symptoms. Drug and alcohol abuse can also increase life stressors, which can exacerbate underlying mental illnesses.
In order to recover from addiction successfully, clients will need to replace their addiction with healthy coping strategies. Many clients also benefit from psychiatric medications.
Additionally, it can be very difficult to access integrative treatment for mental illness and substance use disorder from the same facility. The interdisciplinary team of professionals at Casa Capri women’s dual diagnosis treatment program is highly experienced in treating clients with co-occurring mental health issues.
While a dual diagnosis does correlate with a higher chance of relapse, women living with mental health disorders can overcome substance use disorders and maintain lifelong sobriety.
Dual diagnosis treatment is more complex than standalone addiction or mental health treatment. For this reason, clients with a dual diagnosis require longer treatment periods in the residential setting. If a client must undergo detox, the inpatient portion of their treatment can take anywhere from two to four months, or even longer. However, treatment timelines vary by individual.
Since the risk of relapse is higher in clients with dual diagnosis, aftercare services are highly recommended.
Dual diagnosis treatment costs vary, but in general, these programs are more expensive than other types of addiction treatment programs. Clients receive a combination of medical, therapeutic, and addiction management services, which requires the expertise of a diverse and highly skilled team of specialists. Additionally, clients with a dual diagnosis may require more time in residential treatment to stabilize.
Location and amenities can also account for treatment cost differences between dual diagnostic centers. Total program costs may amount to more than $20,000 for a 30-day inpatient stay.
Insurance plans regulated by the Affordable Care Act are obligated to cover mental health and addiction treatment services. Public and private insurers may also pay for treatment in part or in whole. However, out-of-pocket payments, such as co-pays and deductibles will vary based on a client’s particular policy.
