Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in North Richland Hills and you start using drugs or drinking alcohol excessively, there is a high risk that you might start displaying the signs and symptoms of a mental illness.
On the other hand, if you have been living with a mental health disorder, you might start abusing these substances to deal with the signs and symptoms of your disorder. This could later give rise to the development of a substance use disorder, or an addiction.
If you have been diagnosed with anxiety disorders, it could be because you displayed the symptoms associated with these disorders. These symptoms include excessive worrying, expecting the worst, insomnia, inability to relax, stress, muscle tension, restlessness, sweating, nausea, headaches, hot flashes, and trembling.
Often, these symptoms will persist for several months and get worse if you leave them untreated. They might also be exacerbated if you also abuse drugs and drink alcohol at the same time that you are suffering from these anxiety disorders.
Borderline personality disorder often tends to occur concurrently with substance abuse and addiction. In fact, about 66 percent of all the people who have been diagnosed with BPD have abused these substances at least once in their lives.
You might start using drugs and alcohol to self-medicate the signs and symptoms of your mental health condition. Eventually, this could cause you to start suffering from addiction - over and above the borderline personality disorder that you were diagnosed with. In this situation, you would require dual diagnosis treatment to manage both of these disorders.
Although dual diagnosis treatment takes many different forms, you will mostly find that it is offered on an inpatient basis. This means that you will have to live in the recovery facility for a period of time - which could be anywhere between 30 and 90 days - or even longer in some instances.
The reason why you might benefit from inpatient treatment is because you will require a wide variety of round the clock rehabilitation services to manage both your substance abuse and addiction as well as any other co-occurring medical and mental health disorders that you have also been struggling with.
