Six out of 10 people who have an addiction to gambling also have a mental health issue. Co-existing disorders is the term used by medical professionals to refer to these disorders. Adolescents are particularly vulnerable to co-existing illnesses, and the changes brought on by these disorders can be upsetting for both parents and children. Identifying the causes of an adolescent’s behavioral changes can be difficult when substance use and psychosocial factors are involved.
Is their irritation a sign of anything more serious? Is it a side effect of drug abuse? Managing your child’s safety & health requires keeping a watch out for indicators of co-existing diseases and understanding how these issues might generate new problems or hamper care.
Adolescent substance misuse can be treated in a variety of ways, including family counseling, group sessions, personal psychotherapy, and hospital treatment. The form of treatment chosen must be suitable for the disorder that a youngster is suffering from. Any co-existing issues and other health conditions that the patient may have should be taken into account throughout treatment. The first step in treating co-existing disorders is determining whether symptoms are caused by mental health issues, drug usage, and which condition has arisen. These are what are referred to as diagnostic criteria. It’s an important consideration because treatment for a psychiatric disease differs greatly from treatment for an alcohol or drug addiction. To assess the condition, physicians will depend on documents from the patient, relatives, instructors, and other physicians, as well as their findings. This will help them assess the situation and determine the best course of action.
