  • In the strictest terms, the term refers to any two co-occurring medical, psychiatric, develop mental, or substance abuse disorders. Common alter native terms are comorbid disorders, co-occurring illnesses, concurrent disorders, and dual disorders. The term dual diagnosis is most commonly used to refer to the combined presence of any psychiatric disorder (identified on Axis I or II of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders [fourth edition; DSM-IV]) and a substance abuse disorder. Recently, the term concurrent disorders has become widely preferred. For more information, see Lehman, Myers, and Corty (2000) and Mueser, Drake, and Wallach (1998).
