Co-Occurring Mental Health Treatment

At Maryville, we understand the intimate connection between mental health and addiction. Sometimes, dealing with things like depression or PTSD can lead someone to use drugs or alcohol to cope. Unfortunately, this can lead to a cycle where the substance use worsens the mental health condition and vice versa.

The Interplay of Mental Health and Addiction

If you have a mental health condition, you might not view drinking and drug use as troublesome behaviors. That’s why many people with substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health challenges do not seek help. However, as both conditions increase in severity, it increases your likelihood of experiencing other consequences like medical problems, financial trouble, relationship conflicts, isolation from loved ones and difficulties finding and keeping a steady job.

The old belief that mental illness and addiction require separate treatment is no longer valid. Today, we understand that integrated intervention is the most effective way to address co-occurring disorders.

Dealing with co-occurring mental illness and addiction can be difficult. But if you’re facing these challenges, don’t lose hope. Treatment can help you improve your situation.
