Substance Abuse Treatment

Substance abuse has been recognized as a multi-faceted disorder with complex factors (e.g. personality characteristics, co-morbid conditions) that can interplay to influence onset and recovery.While substance abuse disorders can be difficult enough to overcome, co-occurring disorders, such as eating disorders, are common among both clinical and non-clinical samples. Although prevalence rates for eating disorders (i.e., 1-3%) and substance use disorders (9%) are relatively low, prevalence rates for co-morbidity (i.e., existence of both eating disorders and substance abuse) within the treatment setting range between 24% and 70%.This overlap between substance abuse and eating disorders has been partially explained by similar personality characteristics (e.g.,high impulsivity, perfectionism, anxiety) across both addictions as well as dysfunctional coping mechanisms to regulate affective disturbances
