Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Bastrop and you start using drugs or drinking alcohol excessively, there is a high risk that you might start displaying the signs and symptoms of a mental illness.
On the other hand, if you have been living with a mental health disorder, you might start abusing these substances to deal with the signs and symptoms of your disorder. This could later give rise to the development of a substance use disorder, or an addiction.
If you are struggling with co-occurring disorders such as impulse control disorder with substance abuse and addiction, it is recommended that you seek integrated treatment. also known as dual diagnosis treatment, this type of rehabilitation will ensure that both of these conditions are managed simultaneously.
Without this kind of treatment, there is a high risk that the symptoms of your unmanaged impulse control disorder could cause you to continue abusing drugs and alcohol even after the addiction has been managed. If the impulse control disorder is treated but you still abuse these substances, it is highly likely that the symptoms of this mental illness will later crop up.
Many studies report that the pathways of the brain that are involved in the development of mania and bipolar disorder tend to significantly overlap with other psychiatric disorders. They are also involved in abnormal brain circuits that are similar to those displayed by people struggling with substance abuse and addiction.
This is one of the reasons why experts now believe that addiction is linked to mania. If you are struggling with these conditions, you should seek help from a dual diagnosis treatment facility to manage all these disorders and get started on the road to recovery.
Although dual diagnosis treatment takes many different forms, you will mostly find that it is offered on an inpatient basis. This means that you will have to live in the recovery facility for a period of time - which could be anywhere between 30 and 90 days - or even longer in some instances.
The reason why you might benefit from inpatient treatment is because you will require a wide variety of round the clock rehabilitation services to manage both your substance abuse and addiction as well as any other co-occurring medical and mental health disorders that you have also been struggling with.
