What is a “Co-Occurring Disorder”?

Many who seek assistance at Covenant Hills often struggle with not just chemical or alcohol dependency, but additional emotional challenges that are brought about by, or may have preceded, their substance abuse. These co-occurring issues, also referred to as “dual diagnosis” disorders, may include depression, acute anxiety, bi-polar disorder, trauma, emotional, sexual or physical abuse, PTSD, and other issues.

The Covenant Hills staff understands that the effects these co-occurring disorders may vary from client to client,. This is why your treatment process is structured based on your specific needs. All treatment begins with a thorough evaluation of your psychological, physical and spiritual needs to determine the best, uniquely structured program for you.

Your consulting psychiatrist can prescribe appropriate, non-addictive psychotropic medication. These medications can help present co-occurring disorders to subside, which can help greatly in your ability to complete the treatment process.

“I was experiencing what I called my triple whammy. I was addicted to pain killers, experienced debilitating anxiety attacks and was struggling from years of emotional abuse from a failed marriage. I was spiraling out of control when I contacted Covenant Hills. I was frankly just hoping to curb my addiction to drugs, but over the course of my treatment, your work with me to lessen my anxiety and deal with my emotional scars gave me not just hope again, but happiness for the first time in years. I am so grateful for all you have done for me.” Constance, 44. Female
