The term co-occurring disorder refers to an individual with one or more substance use conditions as well as one or more mental health conditions.
Substance abuse and mental health tend to go hand in hand, and in order to treat one you also need to treat the other.
An example of co-occurring disorders is an individual addicted to alcohol who also has depression, or an individual dependant on pain killers who also has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
It is proven in recent studies that integrating treatment for both substance abuse and mental health while in a rehab program lowers the relapse rate and therefore is a more effective approach.
Common mental health conditions include:
- Bipolar disorder
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Attention Deficit Disorder
- Borderline Personality Disorder
