Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in King 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.
In case you have been diagnosed with or have been living with post-traumatic stress disorder, this condition would change the chemical structure in the same way that substance abuse would. In many cases, these disorders might occur at the same time and continue feeding off each other unless you seek treatment.
This is because the same trauma that caused you to develop post-traumatic stress disorder could also trigger the development of a co-occurring substance use disorder or addiction. You can only overcome these disorders through a dual diagnosis treatment and rehabilitation program.
It is possible to develop psychosis as a result of abusing prescription medications and hallucinogenic substances. In rare cases, you might also experience this mental illness if you are exceptionally sensitive and you have been abusing these drugs.
Some of the drugs and medications that are commonly known to cause potentially psychotic effects include but are not limited to muscle relaxants, antihistamines, antidepressants, cardiovascular medication, antihypertensive medications, analgesics, anticonvulsants, anti-Parkinson medications, chemotherapy agents, and corticosteroids.
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.
