If you live in Bunnell 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 substance abuse and addiction cannot lead to the development of schizophrenia, it can act as one of the environmental triggers that causes you to display symptoms that are similar to those caused by this mental health disorder.
If you have genetic risk factors for schizophrenia and you abuse drugs or alcohol, there is a heightened risk that you might develop schizophrenia after using these substances over the long term. Further, using drugs like amphetamines, cocaine, and marijuana could exacerbate schizophrenic symptoms that already exist, or worsen their severity.
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.
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.
