Diagnosis, Dual (Psychiatry)
Abstract: “Dual diagnosis”is usually understood as the co-occurrence of mental illness and addiction to psychoactive substances. In the last two decades can be seen an increased interest of researchers and practitioners in theoretical aspects of dual diagnosis, their means of diagnosis and planning treatment programs. Establishing a medical diagnosis may be questioned whether psychopathological symptoms are due to psychoactive substance use or are caused by mental illness. Difficulty in recognizing the problem of dual diagnosis may be questioned whether psychopathological symptoms are due to psychoactive substance use or are caused by mental illness. Mental disorders coexisting with substance use are: schizophrenia, delusional disorder, bipolar one and disorder, anxiety disorders, personality disorders. The consumption of alcohol can cause a recurrence of mental illness and contribute to the need for rehospitalization. It is important to take the history of a patient who are suspected of co-occurrence of mental illness and addiction to psychoactive substances.
