Concurrent Disorders & Mental Health
What is Concurrent Disorders?
The term “concurrent disorders” describes cases where a person has both a mental health disorder and a substance abuse issue. People dealing with a mental health disorder are substantially more likely to develop a substance abuse disorder. The inverse is also true.
Relationship between mental health disorders and addiction
The relationship between a mental health disorder and concurrent substance abuse issue will usually be complex. It can be difficult to properly identify, both for the person in question and those around them. It will also be different for every person dealing with concurrent disorders.
Our Concurrent Disorders Treatment Approach
We use treatment methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy, individual therapy and group counselling. These methods have proven effective in treating people with concurrent disorders. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) focuses on how behaviour and thought patterns relate to their mental health and substance use issues.
We design our treatment programs to treat the whole person, and not just their disorders.
Integrated, evidence-based services of the kind Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres provide are a proven, effective way of treating those dealing with concurrent disorders.
