NEARLY ONE-THIRD OF INDIVIDUALS WITH MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS AND ALMOST HALF OF THOSE WITH SEVERE MENTAL ILLNESSES ALSO SUFFER FROM CO-EXISTING
PROBLEMS WITH ADDICTION OR SUBSTANCE ABUSE.
Likewise, more than one-third of all alcohol abusers and over half of all drug abusers suffer from some form of mental illness. Licensed professionals at our dual diagnosis treatment center in Nashville understand that properly identifying and treating these disorders is vital to a sustainable recovery.
What are Co-Occurring Disorders?
CO-OCCURRING (OR DUAL DIAGNOSIS) DISORDERS REFER TO THE EXISTENCE OF CO-EXISTING MENTAL ILLNESSES AND ADDICTIONS.
These co-occurring disorders require integrated dual diagnosis treatment methodologies to help clients fully heal. Untreated or incomplete treatment of co-occurring disorders leaves individuals with ongoing, underlying and untreated issues. These conditions almost always worsen the initial problems or supplant one problem for another. Therefore, an individual must receive help at a high-quality treatment center that is committed to treating causes, not symptoms.
Often, those suffering from addiction or mental illness are unaware of the complex network of underlying issues, causes, symptoms, and consequences that coincide with an identified problem. Untangling the roots of one’s illness or illnesses and implementing an effective, integrated dual diagnosis treatment plan requires a high level of expertise and long-term care.
