What is a Concurrent Disorder ?
Concurrent disorders (CD for short) generally describes a situation in which a person experiences a psychiatric disorder and either a substance use disorder and/or a gambling disorder. It is important to keep in mind that there are many different kinds of problems that are covered by these various terms (psychiatric disorder etc); as a result, CD presents itself in many different forms.
For example, someone living with schizophrenia who has problems with cannabis use has a concurrent disorder, and so does a person who has problems with alcohol use and has a clinical depression.
