Mental health and drug abuse have a complicated relationship. While one does not necessarily cause the other, they can certainly influence one another; thus, it is important to appropriately both address mental health conditions, such as depression, and addiction while at a Palisades Park drug rehab in Bergen County.
State substance abuse centers admitted 3,596 Bergen County residents in the 2016 calendar year.1 Of this number, 23 drug users were from Palisades Park, with alcohol most frequently reported as the primary drug of choice at 39%.1 Furthermore, in 2016, approximately 74 (3%) Bergen County residents admitted for substance abuse treatment were referred by mental health professionals.1 However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that only 74 out of the 3,596 Bergen County residents suffered from a co-occurring mental health disorder along with drug addiction.
Some people use alcohol or other drugs to cope with life stressors, such as job dissatisfaction, debt, relationship problems, which can lead to unhealthy and compulsive substance abuse. This method of “self-medicating” can also worsen an existing mental health condition. Given its frequent ties with substance abuse, mental illness is often a focus in rehab. Screening for co-occurring disorders—the existence of both a substance addiction and mental health disorder—is typically part of the screening process upon entering a recovery center. Any noted mental health problems then become part of a customized treatment program that simultaneously addresses the drug abuse.
It is important to note that ignoring a mental health condition will not help the drug user; instead, it can make matters worse, much like substance abuse. Thus, recovery programs for drug users typically also provide treatment for co-occurring mental disorders.
