Addiction with
Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders

Premier treatment program for co-occurring substance use disorder and mental illness

A dual diagnosis means an individual has both a drug or alcohol addiction and a mental health disorder, like depression, anxiety, or borderline personality disorder (BPD). Many people struggling with mental illness use alcohol or drugs to find relief from their symptoms, which can ultimately exacerbate those symptoms and make their substance abuse issues worse.

The first step to successfully treating co-occurring substance use disorder and mental illness is to address the acute effects of drug or alcohol abuse, since substances can mask mental health disorder symptoms that need to be addressed. Drug or alcohol addiction can also create symptoms that resemble a mental illness, often leading to misdiagnosis and improper treatment. The best treatment for a dual diagnosis addresses both the addiction and the mental illness so that clients can make a complete recovery from both.
