It is not uncommon for mental health issues to accompany addiction. In fact, nearly 9 million people suffer with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions each year, however a small fraction ever seek treatment for both – 7.4 percent. Dualdiagnosis.org estimates 65.5 percent of people with substance use disorders have at least one mental health disorder and just over half of those with mental health disorders had at least one substance use disorder.
Treating Addiction and Mental Health
Historically, addiction and mental health disorders were treated under separate systems of care, however research has proven that drug treatment centers that provide integrated treatment for addiction and mental health have more success and better outcomes for patients.
Dual diagnosis treatment is incredibly complex and is there is no one single treatment option that works across the board. Patients seeking addiction treatment can also be suffering from mood disorders like depression or bipolar, anxiety disorders or PTSD. Some are facing personality disorders or even eating disorders, such as bulimia or anorexia. Treatment for co-occurring disorders requires integrated treatment from medical and psychiatric professionals, who work closely together to evaluate patients and determine an individual plan that will successfully stabilize the addiction and mental health issues.
