Start Feeling Like Yourself Again

Addiction to drugs and alcohol is commonly tied to an underlying mental health issue like depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar disorder and more. If you or someone you care about has ever had to battle simultaneous addiction and mental illness, you know what a destructive impact it can have on your health, safety, career, personal relationships and quality of life. Things can fall apart very quickly, and lead you or your loved one to dangerous and undignified places without the proper treatment. Don’t wait for co-occurring addiction and mental health issues to take over your life. Dual-diagnosis treatment can help you or your loved one achieve peace of mind and balanced mental health.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines co-occurring disorder as the coexistence of both a mental health and a substance use disorder, and reports that nearly eight million people struggle with these conditions. Some co-occurring disorders are easier to manage than others; however, all cases should include comprehensive treatment for both conditions. Whether you or your loved one are suffering from serious and crippling bipolar disorder or PTSD coupled with addiction or are experiencing increasing common suicidal ideations in connection with your substance use, balanced mental health should be the ultimate goal of treatment.

How Do Co-Occurring Disorders Develop?

The onset of co-occurring disorders is different for everyone. Some dual-diagnosis cases start with substance use and some start with an underlying mental health issue. Prolonged and untreated drug or alcohol abuse creates serious and lasting changes in the brain’s chemistry which can trigger dysfunctional thought patterns that contribute to mental illness. Reciprocally, many sufferers of mental illness self-medicate with drugs or alcohol and wind up developing dependency that only exacerbates the original issue. However, co-occurring disorders start, it’s imperative that patients get help they need for both conditions during their treatment to achieve totality of healing.
