Dual diagnosis treatment

Following the recent spread of certain narcotic substances, the rate of dual diagnosis and psychosis as a result of drug abuse has increased among patients, and the treatment program for dual diagnosis began in 2012. The patient loses interest in his basic priorities, such as his work, dealing with people, or planning for his future. -He thinks in a strange way and doubts everyone around him. - Sometimes he hears voices or sees illusions that are not real. The patient neglects himself, his personal energy, and his health. Treatment is carried out through individual and group sessions through which the patient’s social and intellectual skills are developed. The family has an important and effective role in the stages of treatment for a patient with schizophrenia. They must also attend meetings in order to help them deal with the patient and discuss their problems and fears with them.
