If you live in Audubon and you start abusing drugs and alcohol, there is a high risk that you might develop a co-occurring mental health disorder. On the other hand, if you have an undiagnosed mental illness, there is a likelihood that you might start abusing these substances to self-medicate the symptoms of your mental illness.
Research studies show that substance abuse and mental health disorders tend to have some underlying causes in common. These might include changes in the composition of the brain, early exposure to traumatic and stressful events, and genetic vulnerabilities.
Although every type of addiction could cause suicidal behavior, it is now known that opioid use disorders have the highest risk of creating this behavior. Of those who abuse this class of drugs, men have twice as high a likelihood of engaging in this behavior while women have 8 times as high a likelihood of doing the same.
Additionally, opioid abuse and addiction is linked with 40 to 60 percent of an increase in the likelihood of developing suicidal ideation as well as 75 percent of an increase in the likelihood of attempted suicide.
Most of the symptoms of anxiety disorders are similar to those caused by substance abuse and addiction. Further, there is a high risk that you might also experience other mood disorders - including depression - when you are struggling with anxiety. This is why you need to seek treatment so that you manage all these signs and symptoms of anxiety disorders.
This type of help is available from dual diagnosis treatment facilities. They can offer you the guidance, therapy, and counseling that you need to overcome the anxiety disorders as well as manage your substance abuse and addiction - and any other co-occurring mental health disorders.
It is recommended that you seek dual diagnosis treatment to manage all of the disorders that you have been struggling with simultaneously so that one does not cause the other to recur in the future.
This is especially true if you have been diagnosed with both substances abuse as well as another co-occurring mental health or medical disorders. Although these disorders tend to occur at the same time in many cases, it is possible to overcome them. To be able to do so, you will have to go through a highly integrated dual diagnosis treatment program.
