Yes, many recovering addicts are addicted to more than one substance. It can be different types of a drugs, or alcohol and drugs or any combination.
Addiction is a disease, and it is treated like other chronic diseases. It affects people physically, emotionally, behaviorally and psychologically. Some people are predisposed to addiction by genetics or by other mental health illnesses and disorders. Others develop addiction over a certain amount of time.
For some people, addiction is a form of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and they have to keep using more and more drugs or alcohol. When one drug isn’t available, they will turn to another. Some may construe this as a weakness, but it’s also their brain and how it has been rewired to promote more addiction. The brain makes abusing substances a priority over many things in their life, which makes it difficult for addicts to kick the habit.
When people go to treatment, they are assessed for their addictions, and multiple addictions. Their treatment plan will be changed if they have addictions to more than one substance.
