Dual Diagnosis Psychiatrists
Dual diagnosis (also called co-occurring disorders, COD) occurs when clients suffer from a mental illness while also experiencing a substance abuse problem. Diagnosing a psychiatric disorder in someone with a substance abuse issue is challenging as the drug abuse itself can often produce psychiatric symptoms. These dual diagnosis psychiatrists in Metairie may provide dual diagnosis programs, dual diagnosis facilities or Metairie dual diagnosis treatment - dual diagnosis rehab may be relevant. A psychiatrist can help provide support or connect you to a Metairie COD network or support group.
