Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Brazil 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.
The more you abuse drugs and alcohol while struggling with depression, the higher the risk that you will develop physical and psychological dependence on the effects caused by these addictive substances.
Continued substance abuse, on the other hand, could exacerbate the symptoms of this mental health disorder. It could also cause you to develop other health problems - including but not limited to brain damage and intensified depression down the road.
A better solution would be to seek professional recovery help from a dual diagnosis treatment facility so that you can manage this condition as well as overcome your substance abuse and addiction.
Impulse control disorder and substance use disorder share some similar features. For instance, both of them are characterized by a lack of control and deep compulsion - over the use of drugs and alcohol or over a particular behavior. You might also experience cravings to start using drugs and carry out a particular behavior. Both disorders could also influence the dopaminergic reward system in the brain.
Impulse control disorder also tends to co-occur often with other mental health disorders, including but not limited to anxiety disorders and depression. This is why the NIH - the National Institutes of Health - reported that about 82 percent of people with impulse control disorder also have co-occurring depressive disorders or substance use disorders.
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.
