Learn About Adjustment Disorder Treatment

Treatment for co-occurring adjustment disorder at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

It is not uncommon for people who struggle with addiction to also suffer from a mental illness. Sometimes, these individuals may use substances to cope with symptoms they are already experiencing. Other times, symptoms of a mental illness may develop while an individual is suffering from addiction. When an individual struggles with both an addiction and a mental illness, these are called co-occurring disorders. In order to manage each set of symptoms, it is often best to receive treatment for both conditions simultaneously.

One mental illness that commonly co-occurs with addiction is adjustment disorder. Adjustment disorder is a trauma- or stressor-related mental health condition. Individuals who struggle with adjustment disorder often do so because of a particularly challenging, drastic, or distressing event. Symptoms of adjustment disorder involve an inability to healthily cope with change or manage stressful feelings over significant life events. Someone can suffer from an adjustment disorder for any number of reasons, including the birth of a new baby, a change in a friend group, the loss of a relationship, a new job, a transition to a different neighborhood, a marriage, or a death in the family.

Adjustment disorder manifests itself in different ways for different people. One individual who is suffering from an adjustment disorder may display anxiety, panic, or depression that is disproportionate to the triggering event itself. Meanwhile, another person who is experiencing symptoms of an adjustment disorder may have an appropriate amount of grief or anxiety given the situation, but over time is unable to overcome these feelings. Their pain may be prolonged, and it can impede everyday life.

Symptoms of an adjustment disorder can be further complicated when combined with those of addiction. Many times, individuals turn to substances in order to manage stress or overwhelming feelings associated with adjustment disorder. However, doing so only temporarily and inadequately provides relief, and it can often lead to chemical dependency. The added stress of managing addictive behaviors can further aggravate the distressing feelings often associated with co-occurring adjustment disorder. If these conditions are left untreated, an individual may experience a variety of troubling thoughts and behaviors in order to cope.

Why Consider Treatment at Bradford

Why consider getting co-occurring adjustment disorder treatment at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

A person who suffers from addiction and a coexisting adjustment disorder may face a number of life challenges. Untreated symptoms of these conditions may distract individuals from work, disrupt their daily responsibilities, and disturb their overall well-being. Someone who is struggling with unaddressed adjustment disorder and addiction may have difficulty in their interactions with others, potentially leading to a loss of relationships or social isolation. These consequences may cause further emotional distress and possibly trigger more substance use.

Typically, individuals who suffer from both addiction and adjustment disorder tend to struggle with tolerating stressful circumstances and regulating their emotions. If untreated, this inability to cope may lead to poor physical health, including shortness of breath, nausea, gastrointestinal issues, and migraines. These conditions can also cause low self-esteem, feelings of hopelessness or helplessness, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts or behaviors.
