Dual Diagnosis

Walsingham House is committed to offering an equity of service regardless of previous or current psychiatric diagnosis.

Dual diagnosis is the occurrence of substance misuse and mental illness in the same person at the same time.  The diagnosis can incorporate more than problematic drug use or a mental health problem and includes personality disorder.  The severity of the illness is not an issue for Walsingham House although the cognitive ability to participate in a therapeutic treatment programme is essential.
