Reports justify that 43.7 million Americans ages 15 experienced mental illness. In the past year, 25.7 million adults had a substance use disorder. In those 8.4 million people had both a mental disorder and substance use disorder, also known as co-occurring mental and drug use disorders.

Drug induced mental disorders which are treated using medications are schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. Medications are used with other treatments like Psychotherapy. Schizophrenia and Schizophrenia-related disorders are treated using antipsychotic medications and antidepressant medications for depression are commonly used.
