What is Dual Diagnosis?
Dual Diagnosis or Co-occurring Disorders refers to individuals who have both a mental heath issue (such as PTSD, depression, trauma, anxiety) and an addiction problem (substance use disorder, or SUD).
Military personnel and first responders often experience trauma while performing their duties. The general public sees first responders and soldiers as a kind of Super Hero. And they are: but even super heroes need support to continue their mission.
Key to Lasting Recovery: Treat Addiction and the Mental Health Disorder
According to SAMSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Heath Services Administration), regarding co-occurring disorders:
“An important key to a successful recovery is treating both the mental heath disorder and the drug addiction at the same time.
People with mental health disorders are more likely than people without mental health disorders to experience an alcohol or substance use disorder. Co-occurring disorders can be difficult to diagnose due to the complexity of symptoms, as both may vary in severity. In many cases, people receive treatment for one disorder while the other disorder remains untreated.”
Veteran Suicide Rates

One study of military personnel found that close to 30% of completed suicides were preceded by alcohol or drug use. And an estimated 20% of high-risk behavior deaths were attributed to alcohol or drug overdose. Substance Use Disorders in Military Veterans: Prevalence and Treatment Challenges
Military veterans who have seen combat situations or other traumatic situations experience extraordinary stress. Many vets will develop post traumatic stress (PTSD).
To cope with PTSD and the anxieties in returning to civilian life – many veterans self-medicate with drugs or alcohol.
All too often, this coping strategy becomes alcoholism or substance use disorder. The veteran now struggles with addiction complicated by co-occurring disorders.

Veterans and Chronic Pain
According to Military.com, more than half of veterans who participated in conflicts in the Middle East report they experience chronic pain. It’s no surprise that many are prescribed opiates to help them manage their pain. However that can lead to opioid addiction.
Today, veterans are two times more likely than non-veterans to suffer a fatal overdose from opiates.
Do I Need Medical Detox?
Determining the need for medical detox will depend on many factors. Things like your substance of choice, usage interval, and amount come into play. Trying to detox yourself can be a painful, uncomfortable, or even deadly process.
Quitting certain drugs without medical supervision, especially benzos or opiates, can be dangerous or even life threatening. Fortunately, you can avoid excruciating withdrawal symptoms with a safe and medically supervised detox at our rehabilitation centers.
Signs and Symptoms of Substance Use Detox
It is imperative to identify the signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol withdrawal early. If you yourself are suffering from withdrawal or you are worried that a friend of family member is, here are some warning signs to look out for:
- Difficulty breathing
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Fear, paranoia
We have Medical Detoxification Facilities around the country that provide 24-hour medical supervision.
After clients go through detox, our staff develops a personalized and comprehensive treatment plan that guides TriCare clients to progress in recovery.
