Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Casco, 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.
Obsessive compulsive disorder is often accompanied by repetitive mental rituals and physical behaviors that you engage in while believing that they will deflect any unwanted urges and thoughts. These rituals are not connected with the obsessions that you are looking to manage.
If you abuse drugs and alcohol, this action could become one of your common compulsions. This is why there is a high risk that you could develop a substance use disorder - or an addiction - much sooner than someone who is not living with obsessive compulsive disorder.
In case you have been living with post-traumatic stress disorder, you might experience a wide variety of symptoms. These include repeated memories of the trauma you suffered, night terrors, vivid flashbacks, and extreme physical reactions when you are reminded of the traumatic event.
You might also try to avoid thinking and talking about the traumatic experiences as well as the activities, people, and places that trigger any memories of that event. Further, you could suffer emotional numbness, memory lapses, negative feelings about yourself and others, difficulties keeping relationships, and being incapable of experiencing positive emotions.
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.
