A person’s mental health is a crucial part of their overall health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, millions of American adults who are struggling with addiction also suffer from undiagnosed and untreated mental health disorders. In the absence of care that addresses both the addictive behaviors and the mental health conditions which so often underpin and fuel them, relapse can be inevitable. A dual-diagnosis treatment program is the first step toward a richer, happier, and healthier life that is free from addiction. A treatment program designed to address not only the substance use but also the underlying causes of addiction is almost always the best approach.

Do You Need Treatment for a Co-Occurring Disorder?
People who are suffering from addiction that is accompanied by a mental health disorder can often feel like they have failed in some way. This could not be further from the truth, as people of all backgrounds and life experiences can develop mental health conditions. Many of these conditions are the product of trauma or stress caused by external factors that may be completely out of a person’s control. People can be more or less resilient to this trauma or stress, depending on the tools and techniques that they have to deal with them. Unfortunately, those tools and techniques are not often taught to the wider public.
Many adults live their lives while struggling with a mental health disorder. Some of the signs that a person needs mental health therapy may include:
- Mood swings
- Lack of energy
- Changes in sleeping or eating habits
- Increased substance use
- Difficulty managing emotions
These are only a few of the possible symptoms that indicate a person could be struggling. It’s never too early to begin treatment, as most mental health disorders will worsen when left untreated and in a significant percentage of cases also involve substance abuse.
