Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Chesterfield 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.
If you have been living with depression, there is a high probability that you have been struggling for most of your life - or at least since the condition started developing. Eventually, you might turn to drugs and alcohol and soon find that you are also living with a substance use disorder or an addiction in addition to this mental health disorder.
That said, most of the signs and symptoms of addiction overlap with the elements and effects of depression. For this reason, it is essential that you seek appropriate care to treat both of these disorders simultaneously.
If you are struggling with a substance use disorder, you might understand that you have a problem. As a result, you may be willing to seek help from an addiction treatment program. However, if you are also living with impulse control disorder, you might have a lowered likelihood of seeking treatment on your own.
For instance, the NSDUH for 2017 showed that less than 20 percent of people living with intermittent explosive disorder received specialized treatment services for the rage episodes that they were struggling with.
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.
