Do you have an alcohol or drug problem, and you’re also struggling with anxiety, depression, or another mental health disorder?
If so, our integrated treatment program for co-occurring disorders may be ideal for you.
Research shows that approximately 40-60% of people who have a drug or alcohol use disorder also suffer from at least one mental health disorder at the same time. When someone is suffering from both conditions, they are said to be dual diagnosis or suffering from a co-occurring disorder. Co-occurring disorders make recovery more complicated as one condition usually increases the severity of the other. Successful recovery from both conditions requires an integrated treatment approach where both conditions are treated at the same time.
Most of the individuals that we’ve treated for co-occurring disorders have said that reaching out for help was the most challenging step in the recovery process.
Identifying Co-Occurring Disorders
Many symptoms of drug/alcohol addiction and certain mental health disorders are quite similar, so identifying a co-occurring disorder can be very complicated. For this reason, it’s quite common for the mental health disorder to go undetected and dismissed as just symptoms of the substance use disorder. We conduct a thorough mental health analysis once our patients have stopped using drugs or alcohol.
Common Symptoms of a Co-Occurring Disorder
- Needing to drink or use drugs just to function normally
- Distancing yourself from friends and family
- The onset of withdrawal symptoms after decreasing or stopping consumption
- Dramatic changes in mood
- Problems managing normal day-to-day tasks
- Engaging in risky behaviors
- Neglecting health and hygiene
- No control over the frequency and quantity being used
- Needing higher dosages to feel the same effect
Common Co-Occurring Disorders
Depression, Anxiety, and Bipolar Disorder are some of the most common mental health disorders that co-occur with substance use disorders. However, there are several other conditions that can also occur, such as:
- Mood Disorders
An Integrated Approach To Treating Co-Occurring Disorders
The likelihood of recovering from both the substance use and mental health disorder increases significantly when individuals with co-occurring disorders receive integrated treatment from the same provider.
