Dual Diagnosis, can be identified during the evaluation process ? they say. The evaluation Process is during acute and post acute withdrawl from drugs or alcohol !

Since when are thoughts feelings and emotions a "disease" any way ?

Drug abuse, including alcohol and prescription drugs can induce symptomatology which resembles mental illness. This can occur both in the intoxicated state and also during the withdrawal state. In some cases these substance induced psychiatric disorders can persist long after detoxification, such as prolonged psychosis or depression after amphetamine or cocaine abuse. A protracted withdrawal syndrome can also occur with symptoms persisting for months after cessation of use. Benzodiazepines are the most notable drug for inducing prolonged withdrawal effects with symptoms sometimes persisting for years after cessation of use. Severe anxiety and depression are commonly induced by sustained alcohol abuse which in most cases abates with prolonged abstinence. Even moderate alcohol sustained use may increase anxiety and depression levels in some individuals. In most cases these drug induced psychiatric disorders fade away with prolonged abstinence.

They should call it dual billing disorder, The major side effects being the client subject to toxic chemicals to induce a zombie like state, Major damage to there health and a life time of doctors appointments and pharmacy bills.

“In short, the whole business of creating psychiatric categories of ‘disease,’ formalizing them with consensus, and subsequently ascribing diagnostic codes to them, which in turn leads to their use for insurance billing, is nothing but an extended racket furnishing psychiatry a pseudo-scientific aura. The perpetrators are, of course, feeding at the public trough.”—Dr. Thomas Dorman, internist and member of the Royal College of Physicians of the UK, Fellow, Royal College of Physicians of Canada

“There are no objective tests in psychiatry, no X-ray, laboratory, or exam finding that says definitively that someone does or does not have a mental disorder.”
—Allen Frances, Former DSM-IV Task Force Chairman

I rejected this Idea of psychiaric drugging as an alcoholism cure and was thrown out for non medication compliance at Oceanside Treatment Center in Juno Beach Florida Three weeks into my recovery and didn't get a refund.
This was done as a lesson to the others. Medicaion compliance is just a nice word for coerced medication. This is used for those nueroleptic shut-u-up zombie drugs.

There is no more fundamental human right than the right to bodily integrity. A hallmark of most legal systems is that innocent people are protected from anything happening to their own body without their consent. According to an article in the DePaul Journal of Health Care Law: "True consent to what happens to one's self is the informed exercise of choice, and that entails an opportunity to evaluate knowledgeably the options available and the risks attendant upon each."

I wrote this as a direct result of my expirience with that scam called "Dual Diagnosis drug and alcohol Treatment" and being a victim of attempted coerced medication.

"DUAL BILLING DISORDER"

"The Risk of Permanent Brain Dysfunction Caused by Psychiatric Drugs"

"Very few studies have examined the danger of potentially permanent changes in brain chemistry caused by long-term use of psychiatric medication..

"Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, and Luvox are recent examples of drugs tailor-made in the laboratory to stimulate the activity of the serotonin system...

"All four drugs, known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), block the normal removal of the neurotransmitter serotonin from the synaptic cleft—the space between nerve cells. The resultant overabundance of serotonin then causes the system to become hyperactive. But the brain reacts against this drug-induced overactivity by destroying its capacity to react to stimulation by serotonin. This compensatory process is know as "downregulation." Some of the receptors for serotonin actually disappear or die off.

"To further compensate for the drug effect, the brain tries to reduce its output of serotonin. This mechanism is active for approximately ten days and then begins to fail, whereas downregulation continues indefinitely and may become permanent." ...

"Psychiatric drugs do not always overstimulate neurotransmitter systems. Some drugs inhibit or block nerve transmission in the brain. When this happens, the brain again tries to compensate by reacting in the opposite direction—this time by "upregulation" of the suppressed neurotransmitter system. The "antipsychotic" drugs—such as Seroqel ,Haldol, Prolixin, Risperdal, and Zyprexa—tend to suppress the dopamine system. The brain tries to overcome this effect by making the dopamine system hypersensitive. This upregulation can lead to severe, even permanent neurological disorders.

"In its attempt to overcome the effects of psychiatric drugs, the brain becomes distorted in its functioning. And as already emphasized, the brain cannot immediately recover its original functions once the drugs are stopped. In some cases, the brain may never recover."

The majority of Dr. Breggin's books focus on harmful medication effects on the brain, mind and behavior. Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry (2008) is the most up-to-date and thorough presentation of his overall views on the dangers associated with psychiatric medication. It describes how the supposed therapeutic effects of psychiatric drugs are in fact the result of drug-induced mental disabilities. The following very abbreviated summary should not substitute for the more thorough explanations in Brain Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry (2008):

• Antidepressants cause emotional anesthesia and numbing or sometimes euphoria, providing a fleeting, artificial relief from emotional suffering.
• Neuroleptic or antipsychotic drugs disrupt frontal lobe function, causing a chemical lobotomy with apathy and indifference, making emotionally distressed people more submissive and less able to feel.
• Mood stabilizers slow down overall brain function, dampening emotions and vitality.
• Benzodiazepines suppress overall brain function, sedating the individual, with temporary relief of tension or anxiety at the cost of reduced mental function.
• Stimulants blunt spontaneity and enforce obsessive behaviors in children, making them less energetic, less social, less creative and more obedient.

The individual taking the drugs or the doctor, family and classroom teacher can mistakenly interpret these effects as an improvement when they reflect dysfunction of the brain and mind. As an egregious example, millions of school children are prescribed these drugs because schools find them easer to deal with when their spontaneity is impaired and when they become more compulsively obedient.

In the long run, all psychiatric drugs tend to disrupt the normal processes of feeling and thinking, rendering the individual less able to deal effectively with personal problems and with life’s challenges. They worsen the individual’s overall mental condition and produce potentially irreversible harm to the brain.

"I rejected this Idea of psychiatric drugging as an alcoholism cure"

Being a client at this place was the most devastating experience of my life. At a time when I was already fragile and vulnerable, being mislabeled and mistreated only confirmed to me I was worthless at this place. It was clear my thoughts, feelings, and opinions counted for little. I was presumed not to be able to take care of myself or to make decisions in my own best interest, and to need these mental health unprofessionals coercing me to start on the road of psyciatric drugging.

For this total disregard of my wishes and feelings, I was expected to be appreciative and grateful.

In fact, anything less was taken as a further symptom of "the disease", as one more indication I truly needed more of the same mistreatment.

"Dual Billing Disorder"

Of course this is crazy. No sane person could possibly see it otherwise. It is, though, how psychiatrists make a living. It's not terribly difficult, actually. Just select a behavior, a mood, or a complaint, and attach a diagnosis to it. The only trick is to make sure that it's listed in the psychiatric bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM for short. The reason is quite simple: Each so-called disorder comes with its own special number. That number is entered into a form and sent to an insurance company. Then, like magic, money gets returned in the mail.

This is not an exaggeration. It's exactly what happens. There is absolutely no science behind any of the DSM diagnoses. Not one shred of proof demonstrates that there's any physical disorder of the brain behind a single diagnosis. People have experimented by going to several different psychiatrists and making the same complaint in each office. The result would be laughable, except that real people are diagnosed and drugged...and drugged and drugged...by these same shrinks every single day.

Newer "atypical" neuroleptics have been developed-clozapine, risperdone, olanzapine and quitepane-SEROQUEL these drugs have a lower risk of EPS and TD, but are associated in varying degrees with sedation, cardiovascular and liver enzyme abnormalities, anticholinergic effects, extreme weight gain (30lbs to 50lbs) which significantly increases the risk for diabetes, sexual dysfunction, NMS, seizures, mania, and (in the case of clozapine) agranulocytosis.

Additionally, mounting clinical evidence and findings -from non-industry sponsored research-point to additional, severe, adverse neurological changes in response to long-term exposure to neuroleptics. These drugs' actions suppress certain brain receptors (e.g., dopamine, glutamate), and when such drugs are withdrawn (or a patient stops taking them) the drug-induced receptor changes are unmasked, causing an acute "discontinuation syndrome"

ABSTRACT: Adverse effects of antipsychotics often lead to noncompliance. Thus, clinicians should address patients' concerns about adverse effects and attempt to choose medications that will improve their patients' quality of life as well as overall health.

AND WAS THROWN OUT FOR IT !!( medication noncompliance)

The failure of the war against drugs is largely due to the failure to stop one of the most dangerous drug pushers of all time: the psychiatrist. The sad irony is that he has also established himself in positions enabling him to control the drug rehab field, even though he can show no results for the billions awarded by governments and legislatures. Governments, groups, families, and individuals that continue to accept his false information and drug rehabilitation techniques, do so at their own peril. The odds overwhelmingly predict that they will fail in every respect.

1 The basic problem with the medical model is that people take it literally rather than understanding it as the metaphor it is. The medical model portrays the mind as an object. It equates mind with brain and uses this assumption to justify defining certain thoughts, feelings, and behavior as medical diseases.

"Dual Billing Disorder"

Said a clever quack to an educated physician: "How many of the passing multitude, do you suppose, appreciate the value of science, or understand the impositions of quackery?"
"Not more than one in ten," was the answer.
"Well," said the quack, "you may have that one, and I'll have the other nine."

There's too many billions of dollars at stake for all the "experts" to have an impartial view of the drugs and their application, I do not trust this drug pushing culture at all. The "experts" also use to not wash their hands before surgery or doing births, and prescribe babies opium called soothing syrup to help them stop crying.

As I’ll discuss in my next post, exposure to dual diagnosis disease medication alters your neural synapses, introducing an imbalance that wasn’t there before; withdraw the drugs and the patient seems to do much worse, then “recovers” once returned to back dual diagnosis disease medication . It may it looks like the dual diagnosis disease medication is working, when in fact, it’s only treating a disorder that the dual diagnosis disease medications themselves created.

But what about my dual diagnosis disease ?

ABILIFY: Some side effects include uncontrollable twitching or jerking movements, tremors, seizure, and weight gain. Some people also feel dizzy, especially when getting up from a lying or sitting position, or may experience a fast heart rate. Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (combination of fever, muscle stiffness, faster breathing, sweating, reduced consciousness, and sudden change in blood pressure and heart rate) is another side effect as is suicidal thinking and suicide attempts.

Sympathy for dual diagnosis disease medication ? Do you know that there are no studies which have been done which prove that dual diagnosis disease medication is an effective adjunct treatment for dual diagnosis disease ?

In fact, until one is produced, a placebo will be just as good as dual diagnosis disease medication and considering the side effects of this dual diagnosis disease medication, why would you take the risk ?
