A co-occurring disorder is when addiction is not the only issue that needs to be addressed with an addict. Your husband also has a mental illness of some type that has nothing to do with the addiction. Well, it might play into how the addiction happened, but it will remain even if your husband is sober. Some common co-occurring disorders are addiction plus: bipolar, anxiety, depression and PTSD. A rehab that addresses both the mental illness and addiction at the same time will give him the most support.
