What are Adjustment Disorders?

Adjustment Disorders Symptoms & Treatment

What exactly are Adjustment Disorders? These disorders occur when an individual has difficulty coping with a significant life event or change. This can include events such as losing a job, loss of a loved one, getting divorced, experiencing a natural disaster, or transitioning into a new stage in life.

Common symptoms of Adjustment Disorders include depression and anxiety, social withdrawal, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, trouble concentrating, and increased alcohol or substance use.

Treatment for Adjustment Disorders often includes therapy to address coping strategies and any underlying issues contributing to the disorder. Medication may also be prescribed to help alleviate symptoms. It is important to seek treatment early on in order to prevent the symptoms from worsening and potentially developing into a more severe mental health condition.
