HOW TREATMENT CAN HELP WITH CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS
Addiction is commonly the result of another mental illness. Doctors diagnose their patients with co-occurring disorders when they are addicted to substances while concurrently suffering from one or more additional mental illnesses. The symptoms of co-occurring disorders intensify each other, making recovery intricate.
Research shows that treating co-occurring disorders simultaneously is not only effective but also ideal. If you need a strong and evidence-based treatment center for co-occurring disorders, we can help you. Call us today to be connected immediately with a specialist.
In those types of centers, treatment methods integrate therapies that address each condition. Treating all mental health disorders at the same time promotes long-term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
YOUR MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS
Mental health is an important part of who people are. It dictates how we feel, how we relate to others, and how we solve problems. It matters when we’re children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. With 65 million Americans living with mental health conditions, suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.
Mental illnesses are emotionally and psychologically painful. It’s no wonder that people suffering with them are eager to overcome their symptoms and feelings. Patients often turn to drugs and alcohol to numb their pain, which commonly leads to substance addiction. Psychiatric professionals are more adept at addressing these illnesses with healthy and effective treatments.
