Why Choose a Co-Occurring Disorders Program

If an individual has substance abuse and mental health issues, just addiction treatment or just mental health disorder treatment, does not treat the whole person. This can be a problem, as it can often lead to relapse at a later date. 

Treatment for co-occurring disorders focuses on getting to the root cause of addiction and asking the question “why” a person has turned to alcohol addiction or drug abuse. 

Our co-occuring disorder treatment center takes those with an alcohol or drug substance use disorder and provides dual diagnosis treatments and therapy sessions that get to the root cause of addiction/ This program works on treating the whole person — body, spirit and mind. 

Addiction and Mental Illness

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), many people who develop a substance use disorder also have an underlying mental health disorder. Nearly half of those who experience a mental health disorder also experience substance abuse and nearly half of those who experience a substance use disorder also experience a mental illness. 

Some of these mental disorders include: 

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Personality Disorders
  • And more

Because of this, treating both issues is key. Riveredge Hospital, located in Forest Park, Illonois is here to provide co-occurring substance use and mental health treatment for those in need. 

Does Co-occurring Disorder Treatment Work?

Whether or not treatment works depends on each patient’s commitment to positive outcomes. However, a co-occurring disorders program will provide the tools, skills and education necessary for those seeking treatment to work towards recovery.
