Co-Occurring disorders are defined as the presence of both substance use disorders and mental health disorders in one individual. This is also called a dual diagnosis. Many times, substance abuse begins as an attempt to self-medicate an existing pain diagnosis or mental health disorder. These mental health disorders include major depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and many more. The self-medication leads to addiction and continued addictive behavior. Dual diagnosis necessitates the treatment of both the addiction and mental health condition for comprehensive and successful treatment.
