Sovereign Health of El Paso, Texas
The city of El Paso borders New Mexico and Mexico, and lies between the Franklin Mountains and Rio Grande River at the far western tip of Texas, making this location home to beautiful, picturesque landscapes, historical landmarks and culturally diverse communities. Despite El Paso’s constant warmth and cheerful sunshine, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders are widely prevalent among the local population.
According to the 2014 National Surveys on Drug Use and Health, 1,860,000 adults living in Texas abused or were dependent on alcohol or illicit drugs. Despite the overwhelming number of people with substance abuse and dependence, only about 10 percent of these individuals received treatment in the previous year. Alcohol and drug use problems are dangerous left untreated and can lead to numerous chronic physical and mental health problems and increase arrests, accidents, violence, suicides and death.
The same year, Texas was also home to approximately 1,175,000 adults with any mental illness, and only about 38 percent of these individuals had received mental health treatment or counseling in the past year. Substance abuse contributes to mental health problems in a number of ways. Substance abuse can be used as a coping mechanism for various emotional, physical and psychiatric symptoms, but often makes these issues worse or can trigger the onset or development of a physical or mental health problem.
Some individuals face a mental disorder and substance use problem at the same time — approximately 8.9 million Americans are affected by co-occurring disorders, but only 7.4 percent receive treatment for both conditions. These co-occurring disorders make the treatment and recovery processes much more difficult for the person, and can lead to psychiatric hospitalizations and other issues ranging from relationship problems to death.
