Dual diagnosis usually refers to a condition of a person with complex needs and suffering from a combination of two main illnesses such as drug addiction and mental illness. The term may also refer to other conditions such as depression and alcoholism.
In some cases, drug addiction could be confused with another psychiatric disease. This possible overlap in the diagnnosis poses a challenge as to which treatment program is more appropriate. That is why dual diagnosis is necessary.
