Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centers Providing Services for Persons with Co-Occurring Disorders in Louisiana

Co-occurring disorders are substance abuse problems and mental illness, which is a common problem for many people throughout the state of Louisiana. For example, cocaine addiction and anxiety disorders are common, because cocaine provides an intense euphoric high that will temporarily take away the symptoms associated with anxiety. Unfortunately, using drugs such as cocaine to treat anxiety will lead to the problem becoming worse and the user dealing with much stronger bouts of anxiety. Drug and alcohol treatment programs within the state of Louisiana can help addicts who are struggling with a co-occurring disorder. The many different inpatient and outpatient rehab centers and mental health services in Louisiana are equipped to treat these types of problems. Drug and alcohol addiction can become a life-long problem if the proper help is not gotten, and mental illness can cause an addiction to become worse. Someone who may be struggling with a mental illness may be using drugs to cope with the illness. The long-term and heavy abuse of narcotics will cause mental health problems to become worse.
