Conversion Disorder Treatment in San Diego

Conversion disorder usually occurs after a traumatic experience and persists as a form of disability without injury. Patients will display physical symptoms for which there is no known physical cause and which they can’t control.

Without treatment, the underlying stressful event that originally triggered the conversion disorder can continue to cause problems.If the disorder is caused by a chronic disorder, like depression, then the depression must be treated in order to stop the conversion disorder episodes from recurring.

We specialize in providing an extremely thorough diagnostic and treatment process, to ensure that patients are actually treated for the psychological struggles that are creating symptoms.

Conversion Disorder and Substance Abuse

Given the high incidence of co-occurring addictions in patients with conversion disorder, treatment success depends on an accurate diagnosis by a multidisciplinary treatment team that are experienced in the assessment of both mood disorders and substance abuse.

Conversion disorder is a mental illness frequently co-occurring with substance use.

Addiction can develop as the sufferer attempts to manage the symptoms of the conversion disorder, and symptoms can develop or worsen in the context of an active addiction. Accurate diagnosis is essential.

It can be a difficult and complicated task to distinguish major conversion disorder symptoms from complications of substance abuse or chemical dependency and vice versa. At Crownview Co-Occurring Institute, our expertise in assessing and treating co-occurring conditions ensures that you are getting the most accurate diagnosis and the best treatment options available.

Common Types of
Co-Occurring Disorders

Medical researchers have found that a large percentage of those who have conversion disorder also have at least one other mental illness and/or personality disorder. Examples of psychiatric conditions frequently co-exist with Conversion Disorder are:

  • Substance abuse disorders
  • Psychotic disorders
  • PTSD
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Panic disorders
