It is the process of identifying concurrent conditions with addiction which might include adult ADHD, anxiety, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. In some instances, the agony and alienation caused by a mental condition can spur an individual to turn to substance abuse. These are some examples of how complex these self-destructive behaviours can interact, and the results are often shocking.
Many treatment centres unintentionally harm their patients and potentially increasing the risk of relapse. The proper and only way to reach full recovery from co-occurring conditions is to take a comprehensive approach. That could be done by treating the addiction and the root cause for addiction which is the mental health disorder that can make patients hurt themselves and their loved ones, both emotionally and physically.
