How do Co-Occurring Disorders Begin?
Unfortunately, we live in a society that puts a far greater emphasis on physical health rather than mental health. While physical health is important, neglecting education about mental health means a lot of people don’t know what’s happening when mental illness arises. Most people struggle with some form of mental illness at some point in their lives. The issue is that some have a brain that’s prone to lingering symptoms of mental illness that can make life unmanageable. Common forms of mental illness include:
In some cases, it’s difficult to say if the symptoms of mental illness began before or after the person began abusing substances. If you’re experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety while in active addiction, some symptoms may have to do with the substance abuse. At the end of the day, you must address both your mental illness and addiction so you can recover. In treatment, specialists will diagnose your mental illness and teach you how to overcome your symptoms.
