My experience with dual disorder treatment

I have been on a journey of mental health recovery for the past few years, and I’ve recently had to look into dual disorder treatment. I was initially diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, but while undergoing treatment for it, I realized that there was another underlying issue that I was dealing with as well.

It can be intimidating and overwhelming to take on multiple forms of treatment simultaneously–particularly since I had already been managing an existing mental health condition before my diagnosis changed. However, after doing some research and talking to mental health professionals, I began to realize how important it is to get both disorders addressed. Understanding why my anxiety wasn’t responding in the way it should to certain treatments opened up a new world of options for me.

It hasn’t been easy to adjust my care plan so many times or add completely different treatments, but I’m grateful that this kind of help exists. The expert advice and calming environments of my appointments enable me to keep pushing forward in my journey of healing.

I know that managing two mental health conditions is not easy and can feel like a rollercoaster ride at time, but having the right support system can make all the difference.
