Co-occurring Disorders

What is Co-occurring Disorder?

Co-occurring disorders, also called dual diagnosis, happen when a person has two or more different conditions at the same time. Specifically, in mental health, it means having a mental health problem alongside a substance use problem.

Co-occurring disorders can include various mental health issues like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and others. Dealing with co-occurring disorders can be challenging, as the symptoms of each condition may overlap or worsen each other.

Effective treatment involves simultaneously addressing the mental health issue and substance use problem. This usually means a combination of therapy, medication, support groups, and making positive changes in one’s lifestyle.

What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is a feeling of worry and fear about future events, uncertainties, or potential dangers. When a person feels anxious, their body might respond by increasing heart rate, breathing faster, and experiencing sweaty palms. Some people may also have racing thoughts or find it challenging to concentrate.

Anxiety can be triggered by various situations, such as giving a presentation, going on a first date, or facing a difficult situation. While a certain level of anxiety is normal, excessive and persistent anxiety that interferes with daily life may indicate an anxiety disorder. It is important to seek reliable anxiety counseling services if anxiety becomes overwhelming or starts to impact a person’s ability to function normally.

What is Bipolar?

Bipolar disorder, or manic-depressive disorder, is a mental disorder that affects a person’s mood. Bipolar patients experience extreme shifts in their emotions, ranging from periods of intense excitement and elevated mood, known as manic or hypomania, to episodes of deep sadness and hopelessness, known as depression.

During manic, a patient may engage in impulsive and risky behaviors, have a decreased need for sleep, talk excessively, and exhibit a grandiose sense of self-importance. During depression, on the other hand, patients have a persistent low mood, loss of interest in activities previously enjoyed, changes in sleep patterns and appetite, difficulty focusing, and feelings of worthlessness or guilt.

Seeking professional help is crucial in managing and stabilizing the condition. Bipolar disorder treatment programs usually involve a combination of medication, therapy, and lifestyle adjustments.

What is Depression?

Depression is a common mental disorder that impacts a person’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Individuals with depression often experience a loss of interest in activities they once enjoyed and may struggle with sleep problems, such as insomnia or excessive sleeping. Other symptoms of depression are changes in appetite, low energy levels, and difficulties with concentration.

Depression can stem from various factors, including genetic predisposition, chemical imbalances in the brain, hormonal changes, and stressful life events like trauma, loss, or relationship issues. As for depression, treatment programs often include a combination of therapy, medication, and support from loved ones. It can also include a dual diagnosis of depression help in case of substance use disorder accompanying depression.

What is OCD?

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is a mental and behavioral condition that affects people of all age groups. Individuals with OCD often experience intense anxiety and distress due to their obsessions, which can revolve around cleanliness, symmetry, harm, or even forbidden thoughts. They cope with these negative ideas by engaging in compulsive behaviors such as excessive handwashing, checking, counting, or arranging things in a specific order. However, the effect of these behaviors is temporary and does not provide lasting relief.

This disorder is not simply a personality quirk or a preference for cleanliness or any other obsession. Rather, it is an obsessive-compulsive disorder that significantly impacts a person’s quality of life. However, by participating in OCD treatment programs, individuals can regain control over their lives and find lasting relief from the distress caused by OCD.

What is PTSD?

PTSD stands for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is a mental health condition that can develop when a person goes through a traumatic event. Such unpleasant events include accidents, natural disasters, physical or sexual assault, combat experiences, or witnessing a violent event.

PTSD can have a significant influence on a person’s daily life, relationships, and overall well-being. So, if you or someone
you know is struggling with symptoms of PTSD, it is essential to seek help and support from a mental health specialist and seek an effective PTSD rehab that can provide guidance, therapy, and appropriate treatment options to help manage the condition.

Definition of PTSD
PTSD is a psychiatric condition that evolves after exposure to a traumatic event. People with PTSD often experience intrusive and distressing memories, nightmares, and flashbacks related to the traumatic event.

They may also exhibit avoidance behaviors, have negative changes in mood and cognition, and display heightened arousal and reactivity. The condition can significantly impair an individual’s daily functioning, relationships, and overall quality of life.

    Our Clients Testimonials


    I’ve been clean for 6 years and I am indebted to Absolute for making it happen. I know without Absolute I would probably be dead. I overdosed on Ftanyl twice. My family arranged an intervention with Absolute Control. They took care of everything I needed at the time. The groups were really great and my counselor took time with me. Addiction will kill and at Absolute you can get your life back!


    My little sister was treated at Absolute Control in Burbank and they were the best. Mr. Nardos helped our family understand how we could help and he was always easy to get a hold of. I can’t say enough, my baby sis has been clean off of everything for almost 3 years and she’s going back to school. Bam!


    Sylvie my therapist at Absolute Control is an angel. I just wanted to say thank you to Sylvie for being so understanding and sincerely caring. Sylvie you’re the best! I don’t know if you’ll read this but I hope you do!!


    Hi I’m 28 and I’ve been in treatment before at other places and honestly there are a lot that suck they just want your money. I’m just saying. This place is solid they don’t play around. My counselor’s name was Suzy. I think she also kind of ran the place.She told me if I relapsed she would roll up on me.


    I began my sober journey at Absolute Control in 2013. My husband just left me because I couldn’t stop using heroin and drinking. Absolute Control saved my life. I was broken and they made me feel like I was part of a family who really wanted me to recover. Their support and excellent staff were with me every step of the way. I’ve been sober now for 12 years and feel more blessed than ever. The fact that of all the places I could have walked into when I was at my lowest was Absolute Control is proof to me that God has a hand in everything.
