Connection Between Mental Illness and Drug Addiction

Substance use disorder (SUD) is a mental illness that affects your ability to limit the use of controlled substances. As with other psychiatric disorders, SUD can be caused by various genetic, biological and environmental factors. Drug addiction refers to the most extreme type of substance use disorder.

Around 8.5% of Americans live with a diagnosed substance use disorder, half of whom experience co-occurring disorders or mental illnesses resulting from or contributing to their SUD.

Individuals can receive a dual diagnosis treatment that identifies their SUD and mental illness. In such situations, the conditions will be jointly treated using a range of behavioral health therapies to help the person achieve a healthy future.
