depression and anxiety affect more than 40 million adult Americans every year
Depression and anxiety are two of the most common mental health afflictions in the United States today. Scientific research widely shows that as many as 18% of American adults struggle with anxiety or depression every year. Of those who suffer, only about one third will receive the proper treatment and care.
Depression and anxiety are often a gateway in to drug and alcohol addiction. Most who struggle aren’t aware that the feelings they experience are classic symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorders, leading to self-medication with substances.
The good news is that diagnosing anxiety and depression before or during a drug and alcohol treatment program can lead to much better recovery outcomes than simple addiction treatment programs alone. It is very important to diagnose co-occurring disorders during the treatment process to ensure positive outcomes and reduce the likelihood of relapse.
