Schizophrenia and Substance Abuse


There is a strong link between schizophrenia and substance use. Those who experience the symptoms of schizophrenia often struggle with some form of addiction as well. In fact, an estimated 50% of individuals suffering from schizophrenia have a history of substance abuse.

Schizophrenia is often mistaken for substance abuse because the disorders have similar symptoms. This can sometimes make it difficult to diagnose schizophrenia and treatment more difficult, as the symptoms of addiction can mask and obscure the symptoms. Dual diagnosis care is needed to determine the true underlying conditions.

Why are schizophrenia and addiction so strongly linked? Part of it is that those who struggle with schizophrenia often reach to drugs and alcohol as a means of self-medication. In other instances, the brain chemistry imbalances that lead to this disorder can also lead to substance use disorders—meaning the two conditions are caused by the same root problem.

“People with schizophrenia often engage in substance abuse as a way to self-medicate or alleviate feelings of anxiety and depression.”

Co-Occurring Disorders

Schizophrenia is considered a lifetime disorder, and addiction is a chronic brain disease; however, symptoms can be managed on a long-term basis with the right kind of treatment.

50% those with schizophrenia develop a substance use disorder in their lifetime.
