Get the Right Treatment for

When you or someone you love is dealing with addiction, there is a high chance there they also have an underlying condition. An underlying condition refers to a co-occurring disorder, meaning a person has been diagnosed with at least one mental health disorder and at least one substance use disorder. The mental health disorder ranges from anxiety or depression to bipolar disorder. At DiscoveryMD, we believe that it’s important to get the right mental health service to treat any co-occurring illnesses so that goals are met.

Signs & Symptoms of Co-Occurring Disorders

Although this isn’t the entire list, here are several signs and symptoms of co-occurring disorders to look out for:

  • Turning to alcohol or drugs to cope when feeling sad or lonely
  • Manic episodes
  • Inability to sleep
  • Malnutrition
  • Disorientation and confusion
  • Anger and aggression
  • Inability to focus
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Paranoia
  • Suicidal thoughts

Remember, there are other signs of co-occurring disorders besides what’s listed here. If you are worried about yourself or a loved one, and think treatment is necessary, please reach out to us for more information.
