Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Merrimack, 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.
Although taking drugs might not suddenly trigger the development of psychosis unless it existed before, having this type of mental illness could cause you to start abusing drugs and drinking alcohol excessively. If you are prone to this condition, you might also become overly intoxicated if you abuse these substances.
That said, having psychosis could cause you to suffer from addiction. This is because you may turn to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate the symptoms of this mental health disorder. Over time, however, this could lead to addiction.
Like substance abuse and addiction, schizophrenia tends to be linked to genetics. In fact, about 10 percent of the people who have a first degree family member living with schizophrenia also struggle with this condition.
This is because there are certain genes that you might inherit from your parents that could increase your risk of developing this mental health disorder. Further, there are some rare genetic mutations that could disrupt the development of the brain and cause you to live with schizophrenia.
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.
