Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment at WellBridge San Marcos
The coexistence of both a mental health and a substance use disorder is referred to as co-occurring disorders. Dual diagnosis provides treatment for substance abuse while also addressing the symptoms of the co-occurring mental condition. Wellbridge San Marcos offers services for co-occurring disorders through all levels of care to accommodate each patient’s unique recovery needs.
People with co-occurring disorders are best served through integrated treatment. With integrated treatment, practitioners can address mental and substance use disorders at the same time, often lowering costs and creating better outcomes. Approximately 8 million adults in the United States have co-occurring disorders.
People with mental health disorders are more likely than people without mental health disorders to experience an alcohol or substance use disorder. Co-occurring disorders can be difficult to diagnose due to the complexity of symptoms, as both may vary in severity. In many cases, people receive treatment for one disorder while the other disorder remains untreated. This may occur because both mental and substance use disorders can have biological, psychological, and social components.
