Co-Occurring Disorders Detox Center
Addiction to drugs or alcohol can be truly constricting; it can make you feel like a prisoner in your own mind and body. To compound things, addiction does not always present by itself. Often, other mental health disorders or physical health symptoms can appear alongside addiction. These are referred to as co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis, and they make treatment and recovery more complicated endeavors—though by no means unattainable.
The challenge presented by co-occurring disorders is a diagnostic one. It can be hard to identify the true symptoms that are in play, and sometimes the symptoms of one condition can mask other disorders or health concerns. The way to ensure that all symptoms and disorders are addressed is through dual diagnosis care, which seeks to identify and treat both addiction and its co-occurring disorders.
The Well Recovery Center offers co-occurring detox program for men and women. Healing through ongoing recovery and freedom can be yours. Learn more about making this key transition, and about how The Well Recovery Center can be the first step on your journey.
What are Co-Occurring Disorders
A co-occurring disorder can be any condition that occurs along with substance abuse. Anyone who struggles with addiction and also has other mental health disorders has co-occurring conditions. The exact relationship between addiction and co-occurring conditions is hard to define. Sometimes, the co-occurring condition may trigger the addiction; for instance, post-traumatic stress disorder may lead to drug use as a form of self-medication. Just as often, though, the co-occurring disorders are rooted in the same issue of genetics or brain chemistry.
Co-Occurring Disorders Symptoms
There are varieties of co-occurring disorders that can be present along with substance abuse, and each one comes with its own list of signs and symptoms. A partial list of some common co-occurring disorders includes:
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Panic and anxiety disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
Again, dual diagnosis is needed to clearly identify the presence of co-occurring disorders.
