Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Old Saybrook 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 are addicted to drugs and alcohol, it is important that you watch out of the typical signs and symptoms of suicidal behavior. Everyone who develops suicidal ideation and contemplates taking their own life will be dramatically different. However, the warning signs that these people exhibit tend to be related or interlinked.
That said, you might have been displaying many of the classic warning signs of suicide for a long time without making any attempts to take your own life. Even so, it is recommended that you seek help immediately you observe these warning signs of suicidal behavior especially if you are also struggling with addiction.
Abusing drugs like methamphetamines will create sensations that are similar to how you would feel if you were struggling with mania - or going through a manic episode. Although there is still not enough scientific research to show if this class of drugs can induce mania, it is important to keep in mind that studies have reported that there are no major differences between people living with bipolar disorder and those who abuse methamphetamines.
In any case, if you are living with mania or another substance use disorder, you need to check into an addiction and mental health disorder treatment and rehabilitation facility to get the help that will see you overcoming 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.
