In recovery communities and treatment centers substance use is commonly referred to as a symptom of underlying issues. Many people who meet criteria for a substance use disorder can also experience symptoms of mood, thought, personality, eating, and trauma/stress related disorders.
According to a research study in 2012, about half of all persons who seek treatment for dual diagnosis meet the psychiatric criteria for PTSD. People with co-occurring mental and substance use disorders are diagnosed with PTSD five times more often than the rest of the population. At Boardwalk Recovery, we screen and assess for these disorders in order to provide individualized care and referrals to address the whole person.
