Co-Occurring Substance Use and Mental Illness
Alcohol or drug abuse is very often the product of an underlying mental disorder. In other cases, the trauma that people often experience during active substance abuse can lead to a variety of behavioral health issues for which expert, comprehensive care is warranted. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that over eight million Americans suffer from co-occurring addiction and mental health issues.
Behavioral rehab and counseling are fundamental components of the addiction treatment process; however, individuals in recovery must also continue psychiatric counseling and appropriate therapies to build on the progress they made in their program. CARMAhealth offers comprehensive psychiatric care services to help patients address their issues without having to cope using drugs or alcohol.
