Individuals struggling with substance use disorders are often dealing with other mental, emotional and behavioral health issues. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), approximately 8 million people in the United States have both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder. The simultaneous existence of both a mental health and a substance use disorder is referred as co-occurring disorders and is often called dual diagnosis.
