Mental Health and Co-Occurring Disorders

There is longstanding research to support a high correlation between Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and other types of mental problems. Research from the NIH suggests roughly 50% of all individuals struggling with SUD experience co-occurring disorders. Moreover, co-occurring disorders are a double edged sword. Mental disorders can affect one’s substance use and substance use can affect one’s mental health disorders. Since symptoms of disorders often overlap, it’s extremely difficult to properly diagnose people. Co-occurring or dual diagnosis treatment is an essential aspect of any good outpatient treatment center.

Fortunately, our highly trained clinical team has experience providing dual diagnosis for individuals with SUD. Our team will help find you the right regimen of medication and therapy to help you work with your diagnosis.

Some of the most common co-occurring disorders and substance abuse include:

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • ADHD
  • Schizophrenia
  • Panic Disorder
  • Personality Disorders
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

And there are still many more that aren’t listed here. So if you aren’t sure how to face your own circumstances of mental health challenges as it applies to dual diagnosis and addiction recovery, look no further!
