What is the Relationship Between Depression and Anxiety?

Mental health is quickly becoming one of America’s most significant health crises. What’s worse is that mental illness often doesn’t happen alone. Multiple mental illnesses can happen simultaneously or be coupled with an issue like addiction. When this happens, it takes incredibly specialized treatment for the person to not only manage their addiction, but their mental health problem as well. Two of the most common mental health problems are depression and anxiety, and it helps to be able to understand the relationship between the two mental health problems so that you can find the right treatment and support for them.

What Are the Signs of Depression?

Depression is a mental health condition, also called major depressive disorder. The disorder is characterized by bouts of sadness or lack of interest in things the person once found pleasurable. They may have episodes of extreme depression followed by somewhat normal days without feeling depressed. One of the key indicators for a depressive episode is if the person has signs of self-harm. People with depression typically lose interest in all sorts of activities, including self-care and previously fun activities. 

When depression is combined with addiction, the two issues feed off each other, making it impossible to treat one without treating the other simultaneously. This is known as dual diagnosis treatment. At Find Luxury Rehabs, we have the resources to set clients up with dual diagnosis treatment to get help for their mental health and addiction. In many cases, a person with depression may turn to drinking or using drugs as a coping mechanism for their mental health problems. 

What Are the Symptoms of an Anxiety Disorder?

Anxiety disorders, much like depressive disorders, can occur at any time and affect millions of Americans every day. Symptoms of an anxiety disorder include shortness of breath, fatigue, difficulty focusing, intense feelings of guilt or despair, even at seemingly normal events. Those with an anxiety disorder may panic in certain situations and be unable to perform even day-to-day tasks without issues. 

Anxiety can set in without warning, which can make any type of stress a trigger for anxiety. This also makes it incredibly likely that a person with anxiety may use drugs or alcohol to cope. 

What is the Relationship Between Depression and Anxiety?

More often than not the relationship between depression and anxiety is that they compound one another. A person with depression will also suffer from anxiety and vice versa. This is because both disorders tend to share similar triggers, making it likely that if a person has one, they will develop the other as a result.

The relationship between anxiety and depression can be complex, having multiple factors that contribute to it or it can be simple, stemming from one problem or event. In either case, getting treatment to deal with both disorders is necessary. This may require a combination of counseling, therapy, and medication. Medication-assisted treatment is one of the ways that we can help at Find Luxury Rehabs because we can find a program that can help manage your mental illness while also dealing with your addiction.
