Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Hanover 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.
Drug and alcohol addiction tends to co-occur with obsessive compulsive disorder in much the same way that it does with many anxiety disorders and other mental illnesses. if you are struggling with this pairing, there is a risk that you might suffer serious physical and mental damage.
While living with this dual diagnosis situation involving OCD and a substance use disorder, it is recommended that you seek the right treatment and rehabilitation services to manage and overcome both disorders. This type of treatment is known as a dual diagnosis rehabilitation program.
If you have been living with post-traumatic stress disorder, it could be because of the traumatic events that you witnessed and experienced in the past. This condition might arise due to military combat, serious injuries and accidents, natural disasters, acts of terrorism, physical or sexual assault, and the death of loved ones.
It can be difficult to manage this condition. For instance, you might turn to alcohol and drugs to deal with the symptoms of your post-traumatic stress disorder. However, this would lead to more problems - including but not limited to the development of another co-occurring substance use disorder.
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.
