Alcohol, drug or other addictions are often accompanied by some form of a mental health disorder. While either component can vary in severity, an individual who presents both of these factors is said to have a co-occurring disorder.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Association, approximately 7.9 million adults in the United States had co-occurring disorders in 2014.
At Meridian HealthCare, we believe in treating the whole person, including treating both the substance use and mental health disorder together. You can find out more about this integrated approach to treatment through our Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment Program.
