When a person has at least one mental health disorder and is addicted to at least one substance simultaneously, it is known as a co-occurring disorder or co-morbidity.
Substance abuse and mental illness go hand-in-hand, reinforcing or influencing into one another. Treating one without treating the other is not only less effective but can also lead to a splintered approach that creates a more difficult path to full recovery. That’s why in circumstances like these, co-occurring disorder treatment from a professional institution that understands the nuances and complexities of treating conditions simultaneously is necessary.
This process can be difficult to navigate and a challenge for clients, but it is possible to address a person’s mental illness and substance use in a way that enables them to make a full and lasting recovery.
