What is Dual Diagnosis (Co-occurring Disorders)?
The term is called Dual Diagnosis or Co-occurring Disorders. This means the individual has a combination of mental disorders (such as depression, anxiety, trauma, etc.) and addiction (to drugs or alcohol.)
Military personnel and first responders often experience trauma while performing their duties. First responders are first on the scene of disasters and emergency situations. The general public sees first responders and soldiers as a kind of Super Hero. And they are: but even super heroes need support to continue their mission.
Key to Lasting Recovery: Treat Addiction and the Mental Health Disorder
According to SAMSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Heath Services Administration), regarding co-occurring disorders: “An important key to a successful recovery is treating both the mental heath disorder and the drug addiction at the same time.
People with mental health disorders are more likely than people without mental health disorders to experience an alcohol or substance use disorder. Co-occurring disorders can be difficult to diagnose due to the complexity of symptoms, as both may vary in severity. In many cases, people receive treatment for one disorder while the other disorder remains untreated.”

One study of military personnel found that close to 30% of completed suicides were preceded by alcohol or drug use. And an estimated 20% of high-risk behavior deaths were attributed to alcohol or drug overdose. Substance Use Disorders in Military Veterans: Prevalence and Treatment Challenges
Military veterans who have seen combat situations, the same as first responders, experience extraordinary stress. Many vets will develop post traumatic stress (PTSD).
To cope with PTSD and anxieties in returning to civilian life – many veterans self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. All too often, this coping strategy becomes alcoholism or substance use disorder. The veteran will now struggle with addiction complicated by co-occurring disorders.
Dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorders, refers to those experiencing alcoholism or substance use disorder as well as mental health disorders (including PTSD, anxiety and more).
Veterans and Chronic Pain
According to Military.com, more than half of veterans who participated in conflicts in the Middle East report they experience chronic pain. It’s no surprise that many are prescribed opiates to help them manage their pain. However that can lead to opioid addiction.
Today, veterans are two times more likely than non-veterans to suffer a fatal overdose from opiates.
