Co-occurring Disorders Treatment
Are you or a loved one struggling with co-occurring disorders? At Caron’s treatment facilities, we provide various forms of treatment for you or your loved ones.
Types of Co-Occurring Disorders
It’s not uncommon for people with mental health issues to turn to drugs or alcohol as a way of self-medicating.
Conversely, individuals who struggle with substance use are more likely to develop mental health problems. Both addiction and mental illness cause changes in the brain that can exacerbate symptoms and make it difficult to recover without professional help. There are many different types of co-occurring mental health disorders and mood disorders, but some of the most common include: Anxiety disordersDepressive disordersEating disordersPost-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)SchizophreniaAttention-Deficit/Hyperactivity DisorderBorderline Personality Disorder Integrated Treatment
Treating co-occurring disorders can be complex, but it’s important to get help if you or someone you love is struggling. The first step is to seek professional help from a mental health provider or addiction specialist. It’s important to find a treatment program that offers integrated care, which means they treat both the mental health disorder and the addiction simultaneously. This is because treating one without the other often leads to relapse.
Treatment for co-occurring disorders typically includes a combination of therapy, medication, self-care, and a treatment plan. Therapy can help you understand your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It can also provide you with tools to cope with triggers and cravings. Medication can be an important part of treating mental health disorders and addiction. For example, antidepressants can help treat depression, and anti-anxiety medication can help reduce anxiety. Self-care is also an important part of treatment, which may include things like exercise, relaxation techniques, and healthy eating.
