How common are co-occurring disorders?

March 8, 2018

Only qualified professionals can determine whether someone is suffering from co-occurring disorders. Such professionals might include:

– Psychologists
– Psychiatrists
– Mental health counsellors
– Social workers
– Substance use counsellors

Before a diagnosis is made, one or more of these professionals may want to talk to you about your history of mental health and substance use. They may monitor you for a period of time to assess your health and make an accurate dual diagnosis.

If you think you could have co-occurring disorders, you could look for online resources to learn about symptoms of mental health problems or substance use disorders. However, you should then take your concerns to a qualified professional for a proper diagnosis.
