The addiction epidemic is big news in the United States. But at the same time, millions of people are suffering from so much more: co-occurring disorders.
According to a recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health, nearly 8 million million adults in the United States that suffer from addiction are also suffering from mental health disorders at the same time.
Making matters worse, mental health disorders can be hard to diagnose when someone is suffering from the overwhelming effects of substance misuse.
The good news is, mental health treatment and recovery IS possible.
Getting clean and sober is the first step towards uncovering any underlying issues or co-occurring disorders.
Patients suffering from addiction might be surprised to find out that they’re also suffering from PTSD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD or any one of a number of mental health issues or co-occurring disorders.
Following an integrated treatment plan – like those offered at Clean Path – can help you make huge strides, quickly, towards your recovery.
Therapy, medication, 12 step meetings, and/or a holistic approach can help people suffering from co-occurring disorders ease their symptoms and find a new hope.
