The co-occurrence of anxiety and addiction is relatively common. Many individuals with anxiety turn to substances as a way to self-medicate.
While anxiety itself does not directly cause addiction, it can increase the risk of developing a substance abuse problem as individuals seek relief or a way to cope with their anxious feelings.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment addresses both anxiety and addiction simultaneously, recognizing their interconnected nature and providing integrated care to address both conditions effectively.
In some cases, medication may be prescribed to help manage anxiety symptoms. It is crucial to work closely with a medical professional to find the right medication and dosage.
