Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in New Hyde Park, 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 went through a traumatic experience, your brain would start producing endorphins in lower quantities. These chemicals are responsible for helping you to feel comfortable and happy.
As a result, you might find yourself turning to mood-enhancing drugs and alcohol to ensure that your brain produces these endorphins in higher levels. Over time, however, you will start relying on these substances to deal with the additional feelings of irritability, anxiety, and depression arising from your post-traumatic stress disorder. This is how you will soon find that you are also living with addiction over and above the PTSD condition.
The likelihood of developing the symptoms of psychosis while taking non-prescription intoxicating substances will largely vary from one drug to the next. For instance, if you abuse cocaine in excess - by using too much at the same time - there is a high likelihood that you will experience psychosis in a matter of minutes. When this condition develops from amphetamine or cocaine abuse, it will typically lead to persecutory delusions.
You might also experience tactile, auditory, and visual hallucinations as a result of abusing hallucinogens. However, these experiences are not the same as a diagnosis of psychosis. Even so, taking too much of these drugs or suffering an adverse reaction from using them could also cause you to develop paranoia and delusions.
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.
