Dr Siale Foliaki (psychiatrist) shares why he believes the Capri Hospital Mental Health Wellness Programme is so effective.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual diagnosis or co-existing disorders are when two or more mental health or substance use disorders exist at the same time. The common range of mental health type symptoms are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety (panic attacks)
  • Psychosis
  • Paranoia

Are Dual Diagnosis conditions treatable?

Yes, in many cases these conditions are the result of alcohol or drug use, therefore when a person is able to maintain abstinence from alcohol or drug use, the mental health condition becomes A-symptomatic (in remission). In some cases on-going medication support is needed to enable an individual to effectively manage treatement. The treatment of these dual diagnosis conditions does required specialist intervention.

How does Capri Hospital treat dual diagnosis conditions?

Capri Hospital utilizes a holistic approach to the treatment of dual diagnosis conditions. You will work with a psychiatrist, psychologist, doctors, trained counselors and recovery coaches. Each person in the dual diagnosis programme will have an individual treatment plan to meet all your needs during your stay at Capri Hospital. An extended period of treatment is also available for those who would benefit from staying longer in the Capri Hospital environment.
