Living with addiction is difficult, especially when it is driven by underlying mental health symptoms. Co-occurring mental health and addiction disorders are common, however, and often require simultaneous treatment to manage them. The QuickSilver Counseling Center co-occurring rehab treatment program helps people living with addiction overcome their dependence on drugs, alcohol, or addictive behaviors and manage their mental health symptoms.
Our team of experienced medical and mental health professionals designs personalized treatment plans for each client who visits our New Jersey center. Using evidence-based therapies, clients learn to recognize and manage addiction triggers, rebuild bonds with their families, and find hope for a future in recovery.

What Are Co-Occurring Disorders?
Co-occurring disorders, or dual diagnosis, describes mental health and substance use disorders that occur at the same time. These disorders reinforce one another, making it difficult for individuals to manage their symptoms without professional help.
Many people start using drugs, alcohol, or stimulating behaviors to cope with intense feelings or avoid processing the emotions they experience. As these behaviors become more engrained, they often feel worse when they don’t participate in them. This pattern causes physical and psychological dependence, which can lead to job loss, financial instability, relationship insecurity, and poor health.
Sometimes, addictive disorders become a problem before someone has any mental health conditions. However, the dependence they develop on substances or behaviors can quickly cause issues like depression and anxiety.
Our New Jersey Co-Occurring Rehab Treatment Program
As one of our levels of care, the outpatient co-occurring rehab treatment program is a place where our clients learn about their addiction and mental health condition while learning to build a healthier future. We help people struggling to manage all types of mental health conditions, but our primary co-occurring treatment paths include:
Harboring feelings of unresolved, explosive anger can cause someone who is also struggling with addiction to turn to anything for relief. Our evidence-based treatment plans focus on anger management techniques that help our clients recognize, understand, and respond appropriately to the emotions they feel.
Drinking, using drugs, or engaging in compulsive behaviors like gambling may be the only things individuals know to do when they feel anxious. Our co-occurring rehab treatment program helps our clients learn new coping skills and other ways to reduce the anxiousness they feel without relying on addictive behaviors.
Depression can sometimes drive people to drug or alcohol use as a means of self-medication. Our team provides evidence-based treatments that teach our clients how to recognize and manage the symptoms of depression in healthier ways.
Unresolved trauma can cause intense feelings of fear and sadness that trigger addictive behaviors. Through our trauma therapy programs, clients learn how to process the difficult events they experienced while developing new coping strategies to manage their symptoms.
