Understanding Co-Occurring Disorders

Understanding that treating alcoholism and drug addiction requires complex yet effective treatment in order to help people overcome chemical dependency concerns, Burkwood is proud to offer the necessary interventions and support that allow men and women to achieve the sober lives they deserve.

At Burkwood, we also understand that many of the men and women who come to us for care also grapple with the symptoms of certain mental health conditions at the same time as an addiction to substances. For this reason, we are prepared to supply the much needed treatment that can help people overcome not just substance use concerns, but also learn to manage the symptoms of mental health conditions as well.

When an individual is battling a mental illness at the same time as an addiction, refraining from the continued use of drugs and/or alcohol can be that much more difficult. The emotional turmoil that can be caused by the presence of a mental health disorder can render a person vulnerable to resorting to the abuse of substance as a means of coping with his or her emotional pain. Ongoing substance use can, over time, worsen the symptoms the individual is experiencing, and can trigger the onset of new mental health concerns. Even more disconcerting is that if an individual wants to end his or her abuse of substances, yet relapses during the recovery process, any existing mental health symptoms may be able to compromise efforts made to remain on the path of recovery from that point on. It is because of these reasons that it is important to receive care for mental health concerns at the same time as receiving treatment for an addiction so that those battling these afflictions can heal and recover in a lasting way.
