Often a substance abuse issue can be related to an untreated or underlying mental health problem. For example, a person is feeling depressed and turns to marijuana to numb the feeling. And sometimes substance use can actually trigger a mental health issue; latent schizophrenia may emerge in the early adult years as a result of drug use.
We understand the importance of treating the whole person, which includes addressing co-occurring disorders concurrently with substance abuse and/or addiction. Here are some examples of co-occurring mental health disorders:
Because there can be an overlap in symptoms between drug use and mental health disorders, it’s very important to accurately assess and treat both challenges together. If not treated this way, recovery can be much more difficult, as treatment may only be focusing on one half of the problem.
An individual can attend an alcohol rehab program, but never address the underlying anxiety disorder. While they may learn to stop drinking, the root of the issue isn’t addressed and another substance or unhealthy pattern may come into their life to cope with the anxiety.
Conversely, many people seek help for mental health disorders, not fully comprehending that their substance use may be greatly contributing to their mental health in a negative way. Not only are we experts in safe medical detox, but we believe in treating the whole person and have staff who are trained in identifying and treating mental health problems along with the addiction.
