When a person lives there day to day life with both a drug and alcohol dependence and a mental health illness like anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and other disorders, then a dual diagnosis is present. According to a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health, alcoholics are 2 to 3 times more likely than the rest of population to be diagnosed with an anxiety related disorder. Moreover, a  study administered by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism found individuals with a history of alcohol addiction were more than four times likely to undergo a significant depressive occurrence as those without a past history of alcohol abuse and addiction.
