The best way to determine whether you have a dual diagnosis is to speak with a mental health professional to schedule a medical and psychological evaluation. Being dually diagnosed with addiction along with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or another mental health concern may seem like an insurmountable obstacle, but these conditions are treatable in the right environment.
