Co-Occurring Disorders

Treat Substance Abuse and Mental Disorders Simultaneously

What are Co-Occurring Disorders & Dual Diagnosis?

Dual diagnosis is a term used to describe the coexistence of both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder. These types of conditions usually occur together, hence the name co-occurring disorders. One reinforces and worsens the other.

Common risk factors, including genetics, stress, and trauma, contribute to both substance abuse disorders and mental health disorders. At our facility, we treat co-occurring disorders at the same time.

Why Treat Co-Occurring Disorders Simultaneously

Someone with co-occurring disorders is constantly vulnerable to both addiction relapse and worsening of mental health. For example, someone may take drugs to feel a temporary relief from a mental disorder. This form of self-medication is extremely dangerous. Continuous and frequent alcohol or drug use have a detrimental effect on the mind, and a mental health disorder may develop if this condition is not treated. For true healing to occur, both substance abuse and mental health disorders must be treated together.
