How Often Do Mental Health Conditions and Addiction Co-Occur?

Research from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration suggests that in 2019, nearly 9.5 million adults in the United States suffer from both mental health conditions and addiction. In contrast, about 9.7 million people had an addiction but did not have a mental health condition. Alternatively, close to 42 million people had just a mental health condition but not an addiction.

A person’s substance use may have contributed to their development of a mental health condition. However, it is equally likely that a person’s mental health condition may have led a person to use drugs or alcohol to self-medicate.

The Importance of Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Regardless of what condition led to the other, experts now recognize that dual diagnosis treatment is imperative for long-term recovery. If a person only chooses to seek treatment for their addiction, their mental health symptoms will return unabated. The temptation to return to drug or alcohol use for symptom relief will be significant, as they often will not have the tools they need to manage these urges.

Alternatively, an individual may consider getting treatment for their mental health condition without seeking treatment for their addiction. However, this option is equally dangerous, as continuing to use drugs or alcohol can lead to the development of new or worsening mental health symptoms.

The best possible choice is to attend a treatment center that offers dual diagnosis treatment. Our luxury addiction treatment option addresses both of the conditions simultaneously, giving the individual the best possible chance for long-term recovery.

Benefits of Dual Diagnosis Treatment

As with many of our inpatient treatment programs, dual diagnosis treatment offers participants a range of benefits. One of the most significant benefits is that dual diagnosis treatment patients often stay sober for more extended periods, as this treatment option allows most patients to avoid relapse. Additionally, this treatment offers a variety of additional benefits, including:

  • Comprehensive mental health assessment
  • Enables patients to develop coping mechanisms for both conditions
  • Allows individuals to plan for the future
  • Shows patients that they are not alone in battling either condition

When patients know that they have the coping mechanisms and support system that they need to combat their condition, they often feel empowered to control their future. To learn more about the benefits of a dual diagnosis treatment program at United Recovery Project, please contact our team today.
