It is well-established that the concordance rate for depression and substance use disorder is high—somewhere between 45-65 percent. The mortality rate for untreated or undertreated depression in the general population is between 15-20 percent. Given that at least 45% of persons with substance use disorder are depressed and impulsive, the mortality rate is certainly higher, whether from direct and intentional suicide or by a reckless lifestyle, accidental or intentional overdose. Bottom line is that screening for, and addressing depression, should be central to all treatment planning and differentiated from post -acute-withdrawal-syndrome. When identified, continuing care is mandatory, because the cost of failure is too high. #addiction #depression #recovery

In the following piece, Positive Sobriety Institute Medical Director, +Dr Daniel Angres, explains that for young professionals suffering from heroin addition, a proven treatment‬ model that pairs them with other addicted healthcare professionals provides the best opportunity for lifelong recovery. #addiction   #heroinaddiction #addictiontreatment #rehab #sobriety #recovery   #PositiveSobrietyInstitute
