About Dual Diagnosis
Learn more about substance abuse and co-occurring mental health concerns
Sometimes, a person with an untreated mental health concern might self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. Without the right support, it can seem like there’s no other way to relieve or escape painful symptoms.
But the reverse is also true.
Certain types of chronic substance abuse can cause the onset of a mental health disorder, or worsen symptoms of an existing problem.
If you or someone you care about needs treatment for mental health and addiction concerns at the same time, Cascade Behavioral Health Hospital, located in Tukwila, WA, right outside of Seattle, can help. Our inpatient treatment program is uniquely equipped to address these co-occurring disorders simultaneously.
Specialized care for co-occurring disorders
If you’re struggling to get your mental health under control while also battling an addiction, you need a very specific type of support. Individuals with co-occurring disorders often experience more severe and chronic medical, social, and emotional problems than others who have a mental health condition or substance use disorder alone. They are vulnerable to both relapse and a worsening of their psychiatric disorder.
But by addressing both types of concerns through our residential co-occurring disorder program, you can set the stage for long-term recovery.
Statistics on substance abuse and co-occurring disorders
Similar to a dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders are very common.
- According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), 50% of the people who have a severe mental health condition also have a substance abuse problem.
- 37% of people who abuse alcohol have a mental illness, as do 53% of those who abuse drugs.
- According to a 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 7.9 million people in the U.S. experience both a mental health condition and substance use disorder simultaneously. More than half of this population are men.
- The same survey showed that of those adults with mental illness, 18% have a higher incidence of substance abuse.
