Co-occurring disorders is a term used to describe when someone with a substance use disorder is also suffering from a mental health issue like depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder or PTSD. It is also referred to as a dual diagnosis. More and more addiction treatment centers across the country are operating under the Dual Diagnosis Treatment Model, providing integrated services to address both the addiction and mental health disorder simultaneously. Research shows when one end of the spectrum is stabilized but the other is not, there is an imbalance that could lead more quickly to relapse.
