Depression and Co-Occurring Disorders

Given the high incidence of co-occurring addictions in patients with major depression, 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.

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

Addiction can develop as the sufferer attempts to manage the symptoms of severe depression, and a depressed mood 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 depressive 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 depression also have at least one other mental illness and/or personality disorder. Examples of psychiatric conditions frequently co-exist with depression are:

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