‘Co-occurring Disorders’ is the term used when a person is struggling with more than one diagnosable mental illness, and one is substance abuse. Many people who have anxiety, depression or other chronic threats to their mental health turn to alcohol and other substances as a way of controlling or minimizing the effects of the disorder, essentially, “self-medicating”. Over time, this reliance on alcohol and drugs becomes more and more debilitating and consequences from abusing the substance presents its own threats to mental health, compounding symptoms of the original or underlying mental health issue.
