Learn About Depression Treatment

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

Many people who struggle with addiction also suffer from depression. Depression is a mental health disorder characterized by powerful or persistent feelings of sadness, listlessness, and hopelessness. When a person is struggling with depression at the same time as an addiction, this is referred to as a co-occurring disorder.

Co-occurring disorders may develop for a variety of reasons. Sometimes individuals turn to addictive substances like drugs or alcohol in order to cope with symptoms of depression, yet their coping mechanisms can quickly turn into addictions. Other times, those who are already struggling with addiction can develop symptoms of depression due to feeling hopeless because of their inability to stop using substances.

Depression is a clinical condition that is more pervasive and persistent than temporary bouts of sadness. An individual who suffers from depression may have feelings of grief, sorrow, or gloom. Their experience often proves crippling, as their state of mind prevents them from doing and enjoying the things they once loved. Someone who struggles with depression on a daily basis may turn to alcohol, drugs, or other substances to manage their distressing emotions. Unfortunately, this can lead to addiction, which can ultimately magnify symptoms of depression.

Addiction and co-occurring depression frequently impair everyday life and functioning. Individuals who suffer from depression and addiction may lose interest in the hobbies and activities they once enjoyed, may struggle to get out of bed, and may be unable to focus at work or at home. Someone who suffers from depression alongside addiction may wrestle with feelings of low self-esteem or may struggle in their relationships with others. For those who are suffering from both addiction and depression, receiving treatment that addresses both concerns is necessary.

Why Consider Treatment at Bradford

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

If left untreated, addiction and co-occurring depression can impede friendships, cause family strife, and create tension between romantic partners. Sometimes, individuals who suffer from depression lack the energy or desire to engage with others, and addictive behaviors can contribute to their social isolation. Depression that co-occurs with addiction may impede daily concentration, leading to poor job performance and potential unemployment.

Addiction can lead to a variety of negative consequences, including debt, homelessness, and incarceration. Someone who struggles with a substance use disorder and depression may also experience weight gain or weight loss, participate in self-harming behaviors, or have thoughts of suicide.
