This chapter on co-occurring disorders examines issues pertaining to substance-use disorder and psychiatric illnesses. It takes a very close look at prevalence, diagnoses, and medication treatment strategies for both psychiatric disorders, as well as for substance-use disorders. The chapter puts special emphasis on psychiatric disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, psychosis, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Complementary treatment tools such as use of various vitamins, fish oil, and other natural chemical agents are reviewed here as well. Finally, alternative therapies such as social rhythm therapy, exercise, neurofeedback, and meditation—which can all integrate into treatment of this population—are presented and examined.
