Common Co-Occurring Disorders
While our facility may not treat all co-occurring disorders, mental health disorders that can co-occur with addiction (substance use disorder) can include:
Medications Used in Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment
Medications may be an integral part of mental health disorder treatment. Depending on the specific mental health disorder, certain medications may help the patient. For example, symptoms may be treated by mood stabilizers, antidepressants, stimulants, anti-anxiety medications and antipsychotics.
Detox drugs may also be helpful in substance use disorder treatment. If a patient is addicted to opioids, they may be prescribed Suboxone or methadone to better handle withdrawal symptoms and begin recovery without experiencing painful withdrawal symptoms. These medications work as replacement therapy. They work by giving the body the opioids it is dependent on without creating a euphoric feeling. Over the next few months or years, patients on Suboxone or methadone taper off these medications so they can live a drug-free life.
All medications should be taken only as prescribed, and any physician or psychiatrist who treats the patient in the future should have a thorough understanding of the patient’s mental health and substance abuse history.
