Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Old Bethpage, 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.
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.
Impulse control disorder and substance use disorder share some similar features. For instance, both of them are characterized by a lack of control and deep compulsion - over the use of drugs and alcohol or over a particular behavior. You might also experience cravings to start using drugs and carry out a particular behavior. Both disorders could also influence the dopaminergic reward system in the brain.
Impulse control disorder also tends to co-occur often with other mental health disorders, including but not limited to anxiety disorders and depression. This is why the NIH - the National Institutes of Health - reported that about 82 percent of people with impulse control disorder also have co-occurring depressive disorders or substance use disorders.
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.
