Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Otterbein, 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.
It is possible to develop psychosis as a result of abusing prescription medications and hallucinogenic substances. In rare cases, you might also experience this mental illness if you are exceptionally sensitive and you have been abusing these drugs.
Some of the drugs and medications that are commonly known to cause potentially psychotic effects include but are not limited to muscle relaxants, antihistamines, antidepressants, cardiovascular medication, antihypertensive medications, analgesics, anticonvulsants, anti-Parkinson medications, chemotherapy agents, and corticosteroids.
The environment in which you live - in combination with your genetic makeup - could lead the development of schizophrenia. These environmental factors include but are not limited to health issues related to birth, such as exposure to malnutrition, viruses, and infections. However, there are also other psychosocial factors - most of them unknown at this point - that could also contribute.
Irrespective of the cause of your schizophrenia, it is recommended that you seek professional mental health treatment services instead of resorting to drugs and alcohol. this is because these substances could cause you to develop a dual diagnosis for both addiction and schizophrenia.
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.
