What Are Co-Occurring Disorders?

The journey to substance use and addiction can be diverse and complex, with each individual facing unique experiences along the way. For those with this condition, it’s important to recognize the personal challenges they’ve endured. When someone is coping with both a mental health condition and a substance use disorder, their struggle is even more complicated.

These co-occurring disorders are interwoven and can make it more difficult for those working toward recovery to maintain their sobriety. Mental health conditions may precipitate substance use and addiction, or they can aggravate existing substance use disorders. For a person who already struggles with a substance use disorder (SUD), mental health conditions can be a huge stumbling block.

Substance use disorders can cause mental health conditions. A variety of substances—when used or used in a capacity that warrants addiction—can actually lead a person to the development of mental health disorders, including depression and anxiety.

Some of the most common mental health conditions that co-occur with addiction include:

Even though people who struggle with the conditions above may seek to find alleviation of symptoms through self-medication, the relief is temporary, as drugs and alcohol use most commonly aggravate these conditions, creating damage that can last for years.

Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders

Co-occurring disorders treatment takes a staff that is committed to and well-versed in comprehensive care. At Woodland Recovery Center, we realize that treating addiction on its own is counterproductive. We also realize that it can be very hard to open up and be honest about situations and conditions that might influence your life to such a drastic extent.

For that reason, we spend ample time sitting down with each person when they come to us and employing an in-depth clinical assessment so that we may fully ascertain their history and paint a picture of their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

Our comprehensive and multi-faceted approach includes detox, various therapeutic methods, group and individual-based therapy, medication-assisted therapyaftercare programs, and relapse prevention.

Our treatment goes beyond co-occurring mental health conditions. It will also approach a person’s needs if they suffer from more than one addiction, trauma, co-dependency, or behavioral issues that may influence either condition or treatment.

Our staff at Woodland Recovery Center specializes in many modalities of therapy, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which is foundational within our outpatient and inpatient treatment programs.

This approach is a fantastic tool for treating co-occurring conditions because, as research suggests, it is not only proven to work in the realm of substance use but also within treatment protocols for mental health concerns.
