Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Lewistown, 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 are struggling with depression, you might feel that there is no help available for you. To this end, alcohol and drugs might seem like the right solution to the problems that you have been grappling with. This is because these substances will subside the emotional pain that you are feeling - albeit temporarily. They might even make you feel happy for a time.
Over time, however, these intoxicating substances can quickly become addictive - especially given the fact that you are also dealing with the symptoms of a mental health disorder.
Research studies report that as many as 50 percent of the people who have an impulse control disorder also struggle with substance abuse and addiction. According to the NSDUH - the National Survey on Drug Use and Health - for 2017, more than 8.5 million Americans above the age of 18 years were living with both drug and alcohol addiction as well as a co-occurring mental health disorder like impulse control disorder.
Other studies show that 35 percent to 48 percent of the people who have intermittent explosive disorders also live with addiction.
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.
