2. What are the chances of recovery of a patient from adjustment disorder?

In most cases, adjustment disorder lasts only for a short duration, and the patient recovers completely. Symptoms usually subside within 6 months after the stressful trigger has been removed.

3. What is the difference between adjustment disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder?

Post-traumatic stress disorder is often a consequence of conditions like injuries or life-threatening situations like a war or an earthquake. Patients experience flashbacks that haunt them even much later in life. On the other hand, adjustment disorder is more of an emotional or behavioral reaction to some major change in life.
