Co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders can complicate treatment and many issues go unmanaged. Without integrated care people are also likely to develop medical concerns like diabetes or chronic pain. This presents a difficult treatment problem for professionals to solve and family members to navigate, as it can be difficult to know the best place to start.
