Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Los Lunas, 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.
Of all the risk factors for suicidal behavior and ideation, only depression is more closely linked with substance abuse and addiction. If you are struggling with addiction, you are about 6 times as likely to make a suicidal attempt at one point or the other in your life.
Research also shows that veteran men who are addicted to drugs or alcohol have twice as high a likelihood of becoming victims of suicide while women with a similar disorder have 6.5 times as high a likelihood to engage in suicidal behavior.
Research studies show that depression is one of the most common conditions that co-occurs with substance abuse and addiction. If you have been struggling with alcohol and drug abuse, to this end, there is a high probability that you may soon find yourself displaying the signs and symptoms of this mental health disorder.
This is because substance abuse and addiction can intensify and trigger the feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loneliness - among other negative signs and symptoms - that are typically associated with depression. In fact, it is estimated that about 33 percent of all people who are depressed also abuse these substances.
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.
