Depression is the second most commonly occurring mental health disorder, affecting about 5% of the adult population worldwide. About 20 million Americans over 12 suffer from a major depressive disorder in any given year. Depression disorders have devastating consequences, including poor quality of life, dysfunctional relationships, inability to work effectively or at all, diminished physical health, and even death by suicide. With suicide being in the top ten causes of death in the U.S., depression is a major health crisis. Depression and addiction often go hand in hand, only increasing the risk of devastating outcomes. When depression and addiction co-occur, a dual diagnosis treatment program can pull someone back from the edge.

Depression Signs and Symptoms
When you suffer from depression, you are likely to experience many if not all of the symptoms below.
- Atypical sleep patterns, including insomnia or excessive sleep
- Fatigue and low energy unrelated to activity level or other known factors
- Diminished interest in people and activities that once mattered
- Brain fog, which includes difficulty making decisions, concentrating, and remembering
- Changes in appetite and weight, up or down
- Suicidal ideation, with or without planning or attempts
Our Dual Diagnosis Addiction and Depression Treatment Program
It is common for addiction and depression to co-exist. In fact, about one-third of people who have a substance use disorder also suffer from depression. These two co-occurring conditions feed into one another in one or both of the following ways:
- Depression can drive someone to abuse substances as they seek to medicate their own symptoms. What starts as an attempt to mitigate depressive symptoms becomes an addiction.
- Addiction can lead to or exacerbate an underlying depression.
- Addiction amplifies feelings of hopelessness, loneliness, sadness, and isolation, which are also feelings associated with depression.
In a dual diagnosis treatment program, both disorders are tackled at the same time using evidence-based therapies. Coordinated treatment of these two disorders can help you regain your mental health and sobriety to live your best life.
