If you suffer from co-occurring disorders, you are not alone.
The National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS) reports that approximately 45% of Americans seeking addiction treatment suffer from co-occurring mental and substance use disorders. This includes mental health illnesses, such as anxiety and depression. In order to achieve sustained wellness, these conditions must be treated at the same time as substance use. A lifelong health plan needs to include techniques to address every single condition.
Mental Health Disorders are Complex – Integrative Treatment Is the Answer
Integrated treatment is a comprehensive approach that offers all the therapeutic resources necessary to aid physical, mental, emotional, and psychological healing. Living with a mental disorder may increase the likelihood of developing substance use disorder — and vice versa. All people are unique. A mental health disorder may have preceded drug or alcohol abuse in some cases. In some instances, mental health symptoms appear after addiction has taken hold — in some cases, these conditions can be worsened by drug use.
For people with co-occurring disorders, a comprehensive treatment plan should include:
- Evidence-based therapy
- Medical care (including medication, when appropriate)
- Psychiatric services and ongoing care
- Case management
- Family education and programming
- Life skills training
- Recovery support
- Continuing care planning
Treatment Begins with an Assessment
Every patient deserves a treatment plan customized to their specific needs. A comprehensive behavioral health assessment and psychological testing is conducted on each patient at our Center for Brain Recovery at Hanley Center to ensure that all substance-use disorders and co-occurring mental health disorders are diagnosed and treated.
We offer tests such as:
- PEPQ (PsychEval Personality Questionnaire)
- MMPI-2 (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2)
- MCMI (Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory)
In addition to clinical interviews and sessions with their primary therapist, our thorough assessment provides a foundation for meeting each patient’s unique needs.
Effective treatment of co-occurring disorders requires treatment simultaneously, by the same treatment team, at the same place. Our medically intensive and multi-disciplinary programming treats co-occurring disorders through the expertise of our highly trained professionals. Our treatment teams address not only the physical and mental needs of our patients but also their psychological and spiritual needs. Every day, our highly trained staff members — from our medical professionals to our licensed therapists and psychiatrists — gather to discuss patient cases and work towards solutions. A specialized, integrated treatment model has been proven to improve the outcome and quality of life.

CBR services are specifically designed to recognize the connection between addiction and mental health disorders as well as to provide treatment that addresses both concerns simultaneously, offering our patients a greater chance at long-term recovery.
