Concurrent Disorders - Mental Health

Concurrent disorder refers to any combination of addiction (drugs, eating disorder, alcoholism, etc...) existing at the same time as a mental health illness (anxiety, bipolar disorder, or a stress-related condition such as PTSD). One disorder can be more intense than the other - for example, a person can be experiencing severe mental health issues, but only mild alcoholism - or vice versa. How intense one disorder is does not depend on how intense the other one is. However, they are both present at the same time. Have you, or someone you know, been seeking treatment for an addiction without success? Or do you feel as though there could be more going on than just an addiction or mental health illness itself? Diagnosing BOTH conditions is necessary in order to gain proper treatment - often times an addiction can be identified, but if the underlying mental health issue isn’t also treated, it is much harder to achieve long-term recovery. Let us help you find a professional who is trained to evaluate the whole picture or resources within your community that can help with a complete diagnosis and treatment plan. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
