Build a foundation for lasting recovery from addiction

Addiction and Mental Health

a person looks out a window while dealing with addiction and mental health conditions

When it comes to addiction and mental health, many people experience co-occurring disorders—meaning that both mental health concerns and substance use disorders occur simultaneously. This powerful combination can be challenging to manage and often requires comprehensive, integrated treatment to treat both conditions effectively.

At Evoke Wellness in Cohasset, we understand that a “one-size-fits-all” approach to treatment won’t work for everyone. If you need a dual diagnosis treatment program in Massachusetts, contact us at 866.931.6429.

The Link Between Addiction and Mental Health

Many people who suffer from addiction also experience mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and bipolar disorder. These co-occurring disorders can complicate recovery, making identifying and addressing both conditions challenging.

Sometimes people self-medicate an existing mental health concern to cope with frightening symptoms. Others develop mental health conditions as a result of substance use. The good news is that addiction and mental health treatment can be provided simultaneously in an integrated treatment program.

A staggering number of people have a mental health condition and a substance use disorder, but the good news is that treatment can help. As we learn more about substance use disorders and mental health, we can create better treatment plans that provide the help and support people need to recover.

In recent years, dual diagnosis treatment has been more widely available. At Evoke Wellness in Cohasset, we understand the complexity of dual diagnosis and provide comprehensive, integrated treatment to address both mental health concerns and addiction.

What Are Co-Occurring Disorders?

Co-occurring disorders refer to the presence of both a substance use disorder and another mental health disorder. People with co-occurring disorders often experience difficult-to-manage symptoms and require comprehensive treatment to address both conditions.

Studies have shown that integrated treatment programs are the most effective way of managing co-occurring disorders. In an integrated treatment program, individuals will receive individualized care to address both their addiction and mental health concerns.

Treating both conditions simultaneously can help individuals better manage their symptoms and lead a healthier, more fulfilling life. By treating an underlying cause of addiction, such as anxiety, that one has spent years trying to cope with, individuals have a better chance of achieving successful long-term recovery.

Although treating co-occurring disorders can be challenging, it can also be gratifying when individuals succeed. Research indicates that integrated treatment programs are more effective than traditional, uniform approaches.

Benefits of a Dual Diagnosis Program

When seeking treatment for addiction and mental health, choosing a facility that offers a comprehensive dual diagnosis program is crucial. A dual diagnosis program offers the following benefits:

  • Individualized treatment plans tailored to each person’s needs
  • A team of experienced professionals
  • Higher success rates, on average, than a sole addiction facility
  • Access to a range of therapeutic activities
  • A personalized aftercare plan to help prevent relapse
