Co-occurring disorders were previously referred to as dual diagnoses. People with a mental health disorder are much more likely than people without them to have an alcohol or substance use addiction as well. Co-occurring disorders can be difficult to diagnose due to the complexity and severity of symptoms. In the past, mental health disorders and addiction problems were often treated with separate approaches and plans, however, we now know that co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders impact one another and must be treated together.
