When individuals struggle with more than one mental health disorder at a time and they are directly or indirectly related, this is called concurrent disorders and they are treated as a “dual-diagnosis” at the same time.

Treatment centers specialize in supporting individuals with dual diagnoses by offering specific treatment programs to address certain mental health disorders in addition to addiction. 

At Starbridge Recovery, we support individuals with addiction treatment and a number of mental health disorders. Our exclusive programming and tailored treatments help us redefine addiction treatment at our luxury rehab center.

What Is OCD?

OCD stands for obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is a mental health disorder that is characterized as a “common, chronic, and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts (obsessions) and/or behaviors (compulsions) that they feel the urge to repeat over and over.”

According to the National Institute on Mental Health, “a person with OCD generally, 

An individual suffering from this type of chronic and repetitive behavior may seek out prescription medication or illegal drugs to inhibit these symptoms.

What Are the Signs of Drug Addiction?

Signs of drug addiction can vary from person to person and based on the drug used. However, there are some common behavioral and physical changes that occur when an individual starts using a substance.

Drug use may also exacerbate other mental health symptoms, like those a person with OCD might experience.

Can I Get Help for OCD and Drug Addiction at the Same Time?

Yes! When an individual has two simultaneously occurring mental health concerns, they can receive treatment under the umbrella of “dual-diagnosis.” Dual-diagnosis treatment programs focus on treating both the mental health concern, in this case, OCD, and the addiction or substance use disorder. Treatment is designed around coping mechanisms and self-management skills, as well as contingency management for overwhelming situations.
