Double Sink w/ Garbage Disposal

I have a double sink with a new garbage disposal. Every time I turn on the disposal, water shoots out the drain on the opposite side. How can I prevent this from happening?

Since it's pretty difficult to install a garbage disposal improperly I believe your drain is pretty plugged up.

How is the disposal drain connected to the drain from the other side... because if you used a standard end outlet setup AND the drain is not stopped up, then it can't come UP in the other side, it is not possible... so you either have used improper piping between the two sides OR the drain is stopped up... one or the other....
