How Are Co-Occurring Disorders Treated?

There is a strong likelihood that a person who is addicted to drugs and alcohol may also have issues with their mental health. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), many people who are addicts have a dual diagnosis and may not be aware of it. Most often addicts and alcoholics who have a mental health concern use drugs and alcohol to self-medicate.

 Some mental health conditions have been identified as risk factors for developing a substance use disorder. For example, some research suggests that people with mental illness may use drugs or alcohol as a form of self-medication. Although some drugs may help with mental illness symptoms, sometimes this can also make the symptoms worse. Additionally, when a person develops a mental illness, brain changes may enhance the rewarding effects of substances, predisposing the person to continue using the substance. (NIDA)
