Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Mulberry, 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.
Borderline personality disorder often runs in families. This is why some scientists now believe that your genetic makeup could have a role to play in the development of this mental health disorder. Further, you might have certain inherited personality traits and temperaments - such as aggression - that could increase your risk of acquiring this disorder.
Irrespective of the cause of the borderline personality disorder, there is also a probability that you might also find yourself abusing drugs and alcohol to self-medicate the symptoms of this illness. This is why addiction and BPD often occur at the same time.
The more you abuse drugs and alcohol while struggling with depression, the higher the risk that you will develop physical and psychological dependence on the effects caused by these addictive substances.
Continued substance abuse, on the other hand, could exacerbate the symptoms of this mental health disorder. It could also cause you to develop other health problems - including but not limited to brain damage and intensified depression down the road.
A better solution would be to seek professional recovery help from a dual diagnosis treatment facility so that you can manage this condition as well as overcome your substance abuse and 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.
