Addiction rarely exists as a problem in and of itself. We know that there are often a myriad of other issues people are dealing with either because of, or in conjunction with their substance use.
The term Concurrent Disorders is generally used to refer to a co-existing addiction and mental health problem. In the past people with concurrent disorders when often shuffled between programs and services either being told they needed to go deal with their addiction before they could work on their mental health, or vice versa.
Thankfully, this is changing and there are increasingly more and more programs and services equipped to support both of these equally complex issues.
