Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Byram, as in the rest of the country. Although this condition covers a wide variety of substance abuse and mental health disorders, suffering from a particular mental illness could increase your susceptibility to abuse drugs and alcohol.
Examples of these mental illness that could eventually lead to addiction include major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, schizophrenia, personality disorders, conduct disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and suicidal ideation and actions, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
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.
There are highly qualified dual diagnosis treatment programs available today. These programs are suitable if you have been diagnosed with both a mental health disorder as well as a substance use disorder or an addiction.
The treatment services provided by these programs are highly effective and integrated. This is because you need them to manage all the disorders that you have been struggling with at the same time so that none of them aggravates the other or causes you to suffer a relapse or a recurrence of any of these disorders.
