Co-Occurring Recovery Programs

Addiction rarely emerges or progresses on its own. Rather, drug and alcohol dependency are frequently the product of a range of contributing factors, including a history of trauma and the existence of co-occurring mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, and personality disorders.

So, if you want to enjoy true and lasting addiction recovery, then it is imperative to address the factors that have contributed to the rise of the dependency or to its progression. 

This is where co-occurring recovery comes in. Addiction recovery programs that specialize in co-occurring care are specialized to support whole-person treatment in order to address the addiction at its roots. This includes comprehensive mental health care to address past traumas and to treat co-occurring mental illnesses, from depression and anxiety to psychopathy.

It’s estimated, for example, that nearly half of all persons with a substance use disorder (SUD) also have some form of mental illness, such as major depressive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or personality disorder. 

Recognizing the Signs

To address the addiction without simultaneously addressing the comorbidities, from trauma to mental illness, is to condemn those in recovery to almost certain relapse. Unfortunately, however, not all recovery programs are designed to provide co-occurring care nor even to recognize the existence of a relevant co-occurring condition. 

This is why it is imperative for people with SUD to learn to identify the risk factors or key indicators of a co-occurring condition. These can include:
