Depression and Addiction
In some cases, people diagnosed with a depressive disorder to also have issues with alcohol and substance use, and many people with depression meet clinical for an alcohol and/or substance use disorder (AUD/SUD). When an individual has a mental health disorder such as depression and an alcohol and/or substance use disorder and a mental health disorder at the same time, they receive a dual diagnosis and have what treatment professionals call co-occurring disorders.
Evidence shows the following prevalence rates for depressive disorders and co-occurring alcohol and/or substance use disorders among adults in the U.S.
Major Depressive Episode (MDE): 2021
- Adults 18+: 8.3% (21.0 million)
- Adults 18-25 showed the highest rates of MDE at 18.6% (6.2 million)
MDE With Severe Impairment: 2021
- Adults 18+: 5.7% (14.5 million)
- Adults 18-25 showed the highest rates of MDE at 13.3% (4.4 million)
Additional data shows the following prevalence rates for alcohol or substance use disorder among people with depressive disorders.
Depression and Co-Occurring Disorders
- Depression and any substance use disorder (SUD): 25%
- Depression and alcohol use disorder (AUD): 21%
- Depression and illicit drug use disorder: 12%
- Depression and cannabis use disorder: 12%
One reason rates of addiction among people with depression is the practice of self-medication: a person with depression may attempt to manage their uncomfortable, painful, and disruptive symptoms with alcohol or drugs. Self-medication may help relieve symptoms temporarily, but as a long-term strategy for symptom management, self-medication causes more problems than it solves.
That’s why treatment is essential: depression and addiction are chronic mental health disorders, and people diagnosed with co-occurring depression and addiction respond well to evidence-based treatment delivered by experience professionals who follow a holistic, integrated treatment model.
