If you live in Delbarton 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 mania is known to produce pleasurable sensations - which could be heightened when you combine a manic episode with substance abuse - it is important to keep in mind that this could also increase your risk of suffering from a co-occurring disorder. It could also cause you to engage in risky sexual behavior that might potentially lead to the development of a sexually transmitted disease like HIV/AIDS and hepatitis B and C.
To this end, it is recommended that you go for evaluation to check if you have been living with mania - especially if you have been abusing drugs and drinking alcohol more excessively than you used to.
Typically, obsessive compulsive disorder will mostly emerge during your late teens and early adulthood. Since you might have been experimenting with alcohol and drugs during this time, there is a high risk that you might develop a substance abuse disorder at the same time as your OCD.
The NLM - the National Library of Medicine - also reports that teens living with obsessive compulsive disorder are especially vulnerable and prone to the abuse of these substances. If they engage in this behavior, their obsessions and compulsions could be compounded and cause them to become addicted to these substances.
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.
