Sometimes, mental health disorders are combined with other, co-occurring disorders. These co-occurring disorders can vary, but commonly include co-occurring substance abuse or co-occurring impulse control disorders. Co-occurring disorders can be upsetting, even heartbreaking, for both those who struggle with them and for their loved ones. Left unchecked, destructive behaviors resulting from co-occurring disorders can have intense consequences on any and all aspects of a person’s life.
Consequences can be health-related, professional or social, even financial or legal. In turn, these consequences can cause profound feeling of shame, guilt and isolation, particularly when loved ones are affected. These feelings can be particularly intense when combined with underlying mental health disorders, such as anxiety or depression.
Co-occurring disorders are complex, and it can be difficult to treat them properly. At Solara Mental Health we understand this complexity and strive to treat it through a clear, specific diagnosis. Our Psychiatric facility utilizes individualized treatment plans and a combination of therapeutic modalities. We approach co-occurring disorder treatment within the framework of its underlying mental health disorder, ensuring that the underlying source of the co-occurring behaviors are properly identified and addressed. This approach helps end self-destructive cycles and build long-lasting recovery.
