Clarity on Substance Use/
Treatment for problematic substance use, occurring in the context mental health issues.
Most people that have difficulty with substance use have underlying issues that drive the urge to self-medicate. You may be experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, severe insomnia, trauma, or other mood fluctuations and have used some type of substance (or used a medication not as prescribed) to manage these symptoms in order to find relief. When there are significant mental health symptoms combined with substance use issues, this is a "co-occurring disorder." When substance use interferes with work, school, interpersonal relationships, and any area of functioning and well-being, replacement coping strategies are needed to manage the underlying symptoms that may be driving that use.
