Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Ellendale, 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.
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.
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.
