Depression and Addiction

There is a lot of challenge in the addiction treatment field as to ascertain if the dual diagnosed individual’s mental illness is the primary disorder, or the substance abuse. That is why it is important to seek out a treatment center that has lots of experience treating the dually diagnosed client.


If a person have both disorders, both disorders have to be treated. Is is often the case that self medicators are using substances to control agitated depression that might, unchecked, include suicidal wishers or acts. If such a person stops using alcohol for instance, without making plans to control the depression in some better way, then they run the sever risk of creating suicide.

I have personally witnessed this in people trying to get clean, and it is devastating to experience. If depression is not diagnosed because the focus is only the addiction to drugs or alcohol, the individual may not be able to cope with the detoxifying process. If you think that you may be self medicating due to depression, please see your doctor or call one of our treatment centers immediately. There is help, there is hope, and you can feel better.
