If you live in Central Falls 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.
Typically, an impulse control disorder will appear during your childhood or teenage years. Examples of these disorders include intermittent personality disorder, conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, kleptomania, and pyromania.
However, there is no single universal cause of these disorders. There are many different reasons why you might develop one of them - including but not limited to genetic factors, environmental factors, physiological factors, and temperamental factors.
Irrespective of the reasons behind the development of impulse control disorder, it is recommended that you seek help as soon as possible instead of resorting to substance abuse involving drugs and alcohol.
Research studies have pointed out the fact that substance abuse and addiction can occur at the same time as mania. If you have been living with a diagnosed or an undiagnosed bipolar disorder and you are in a manic state, there is a high likelihood that you will engage in such behaviors as drug and alcohol abuse.
Substance abuse, on the other hand, could induce these manic episodes. This is particularly true if you are predisposed to or have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. You should, therefore, be cautious about abusing drugs in case you are in this situation.
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.
