Oregon Dual Diagnosis Rehab Centers

Mental illness affects many individuals in Oregon and can often lead to substance abuse or addiction. If you or a loved one suffer from a dual diagnosis, it is important to seek help that is designed to treatment both mental health and addiction.

Oregon is home to more than 3.8 million residents, and 137,000 have serious mental illness, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. 1,875 adults aged 18 or older (2.9 percent) report symptoms of severe psychological distress.

In Oregon, 4,294 adults aged 18 and older (7.6 percent) are currently depressed, according to the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. An estimated 4,670 adults aged 18 or older (21.3 percent) have been diagnosed with depression at some point in their lifetime, and 4,667 adults aged 18 or older (13.2 percent) have been diagnosed with anxiety at some point in their lifetime. 12.3 percent of women who have recently given birth report symptoms of postpartum depression.

Mental illness is not limited to depression or anxiety. Nationwide, 18.7 percent of individuals living in nursing homes aged 65 to 74 years and 23.5 percent of those aged 85 years or older are diagnosed with Dementia or Alzheimer’s. Mental illness affects Oregon residents of all ages.

Unfortunately, Oregon’s public mental health services provide care for only 43 percent of adults who live with serious mental illness. Without effective treatment, mental illness can often co-occur with addiction or increase the risk for substance abuse.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment Addresses Mental Illness & Addiction

Individuals who are mentally ill are at increased risk for addiction, according to research from the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Individuals with mental illness and addiction are considered to have a “co-occurring disorder” and will benefit from “dual diagnosis treatment.” Individuals with severe mental illness are four times more likely to abuse alcohol and nearly five times more likely to use other drugs at least ten times in their lives. Nearly 8.4 million adults in the United States have both a mental and substance use disorder.

Diagnosing and treatment mental illness and addiction can be complex as both mental illness and addiction feed off one another. For example, individuals who are experiencing depression or anxiety may turn to drugs or alcohol as a means to self-medicate. Unfortunately, abusing drugs or alcohol in conjunction with mental illness can often exacerbate the symptoms of mental illness and make it more difficult to effectively treat. Many times a prescribed medication can also exacerbate the situation. This is why dual diagnosis treatment is so important.
