The Link Between Addiction and Mental Health Disorders


Studies show that addiction and mental health disorders often go hand-in-hand. It’s common for those struggling with depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions to use alcohol and drugs to self-medicate their symptoms.

Over time, this can lead to alcohol addiction or drug abuse . The challenge then becomes how to help the person manage the addiction when the co-occurring mental health disorder can be such a strong trigger for substance use. When both addiction and a dual disorder exist, co-occurring disorder treatment is needed to support an individual through full recovery.

The key to treating co-occurring disorders and addiction is integrated care – treating both conditions at the same time, in a way that acknowledges the effect that each condition has on the other. Whether addiction came first, or the co-occurring disorder is an underlying factor, making sure that co-occurring disorder treatment supports the management of both disorders is necessary to achieve abstinence and recovery.

Co-Occurring Disorders

There are many types of co-occurring disorders. Research tells us that more than 50% of the time, one of the following is contributing to an addiction:

  • Depressive disorder
  • Anxiety disorder or panic disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
