Concurrent Disorders

The Healing Institute provides treatments that are designed to meet the needs of people with concurrent disorders. Concurrent disorders are present when an individual has both a substance use and a mental health disorder at the same time.

At times, mental illnesses may cause patients to turn to substances to cope. However, the opposite is also true in that psychosis, anxiety, and other mental illnesses may result from continued substance abuse.

The key is to treat both conditions at the same time. This approach is the most beneficial for patients because it results in the best short- and long-term outcomes.

Concurrent disorder treatment is very complex and requires a comprehensive assessments and diagnosis and an interdisciplinary team of professionals. At The Healing Institute, our comprehensive assessment is designed to understand each individual and the unique circumstances that led them to reach out for help.
