At TruHealing Gaithersburg, we treat co-occurring disorders, which is when an individual experiences both a substance use and mental health disorder(s) at the same time. For many people, addiction and mental health problems occur together. Either disorder can develop first, and one often leads to the other. For example, someone with severe anxiety or depression might turn to alcohol or drugs to cope. Alternately, an individual with an addiction might experience brain changes that lead to mental health issues. Finally, underlying biological conditions can make some people more susceptible to both disorders.
The road to recovery with co-occurring disorders can seem challenging. However, at a co-occurring disorders treatment center, specialized help is available to treat both.
But why is a co-occurring treatment center more effective than separate treatment? The two conditions influence each other, so you cannot treat mental illness without also addressing addiction. If you receive treatment for addiction but not for mental health, your mental health symptoms can be a trigger for picking up substances again. If you receive treatment for a mental health disorder without addressing addiction, treatment won’t be as effective because alcohol or drugs can exacerbate symptoms, you won’t be present to work on your mental health recovery, and any medication you’re prescribed may interact poorly with alcohol or drugs.
