Dual Diagnosis Therapists
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 therapists in Santa Cruz may provide dual diagnosis programs, dual diagnosis facilities or Santa Cruz dual diagnosis treatment - dual diagnosis rehab may be relevant. A therapist can help provide support or connect you to a Santa Cruz COD network or support group.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Santa Cruz are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Santa Cruz you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Santa Cruz and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Santa Cruz or family therapy in Santa Cruz.
