Struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction & dealing with depression, anxiety, or another mental health problem?
Our integrated treatment program may be right for you!
It is estimated that about 40-60% of individuals suffering with a substance use disorder also have at least one co-existing mental health condition. When this occurs, the person is said to have a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis. With co-occurring disorders, one condition tends to increase the severity of the other, making recovery from both more complicated. However, a structured integrated treatment program that addresses both addiction and mental health disorders significantly increases the likelihood of recovery from both.
Most of the people we’ve helped get into recovery say that the most difficult step was making the first phone call
Diagnosing Co-Occurring Disorders
It can be difficult to identify a co-occurring disorder because the symptoms of substance addiction and certain mental health illnesses are quite similar. For that reason, oftentimes the mental health condition can go undetected and dismissed as just a substance use disorder. It is recommended to make a mental health analysis when the individual has stopped consuming drugs or alcohol.
Common Symptoms Of A Co-Occurring Disorder
- The need to use substances just to function normally
- Self isolation from family and friends
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop or decrease usage
- Sudden mood changes
- Difficulty managing daily tasks
- Engaging in risky behaviors
- Neglecting health and hygiene
- Inability to control substance use
- Developing a high tolerance to a substance
Common Co-Occurring Disorders
The mental health problems that most commonly co-occur with substance abuse are depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety disorders. Other mental health conditions related to substance addiction are:
- Mood Disorders
