What Are Co-Occurring Disorders?

Rest assured that the therapeutic team and qualified professional staff at The River Rehab have the expertise you need to help you with your Co-Occurring diagnosis. Sometimes referred to as Dual-Diagnoses; this is defined as someone with both substance abuse and mental health disorders such as depression, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety and  Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). 

Although the symptoms of one disorder may predate the other, both tend to exacerbate one another. Any hope for long term recovery is dependent on effectively treating both disorders and addressing any underlying trauma that may be festering below the surface.

Underlying Trauma

Current research shows that there is a strong link between exposure to traumatic events and substance abuse problems. Childhood trauma in particular compromises neural structure and function, rendering an individual susceptible to later cognitive deficits and psychiatric illnesses including depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and substance abuse. 

At The River Rehab, we offer an integrated treatment approach that addresses the addiction and any underlying trauma that may be affecting your recovery. Whether the trauma is physical, sexual, or emotional, these events can feel overwhelming and keep you stuck in a cycle of subconscious self-destructive behaviors. In our experience, untreated trauma leaves people vulnerable to relapse and can trigger harmful symptoms like anxiety, depression, phobias, personality disorders, flashbacks, emotional numbing, nightmares, self-harm, and eating disorders.

Therapeutic Solutions For Trauma

Becoming aware of how traumatic events may have affected your behavior is the first step. At The River, we use multiple therapeutic processes to identify and address underlying trauma and family-of-origin issues. 

Once we have identified any issues, our therapeutic team works with you to explore ways to deal with the emotions that accompany past traumatic events and develop an individualized treatment plan for emotional regulation and distress tolerance.
