What is Dual Diagnosis Therapy (DDT)?

HRI alcohol detox and Dual Diagnosis Treatment (DDT) programs provide integrated, simultaneous dual diagnosis treatment for clients with major mood disorder [i.e. major depression, severe anxiety] and alcohol abuse. Studies show that nearly 66% of individuals with a substance abuse issue have concurrent mental health issues. By providing treatment for all issues, in a full and highly individualized manner, HRI assures clients of the best chance for recovery.


A dual diagnosis means that someone has a substance abuse issue that is present along with mental health issues. For some individuals, the uncomfortable or distressing emotional and mental symptoms led to using drugs or alcohol. Other clients developed mental health issues, such as anxiety or depression, during the course of their addiction.
Co-occurring mental health conditions that are commonly seen with drug and alcohol abuse include:


  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Panic Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar Disorder
