Co-Occurring Disorders: Depression Therapy and Addiction
Depression and addiction are two of the most common illnesses found in American people. Many individuals suffer from both at the same time. Because depression causes a user to feel extraordinarily sad and drugs offer a temporary form of relief, it is common for depressed people to develop substance abuse problems. With our depression treatment program, we can locate any underlying causes and utilize depression therapy to promote mental health.
At the moment, it is estimated that nearly one-third of all clinically depressed people abuse drugs and alcohol. The connection between depression and addiction is so strong that the two conditions are often diagnosed as co-occurring disorders.
