Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Portales, 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.
Like substance abuse and addiction, schizophrenia tends to be linked to genetics. In fact, about 10 percent of the people who have a first degree family member living with schizophrenia also struggle with this condition.
This is because there are certain genes that you might inherit from your parents that could increase your risk of developing this mental health disorder. Further, there are some rare genetic mutations that could disrupt the development of the brain and cause you to live with schizophrenia.
If you engage in suicidal behavior, there is a probability that you could be suffering from depression or struggling with a substance use disorder, or an addiction involving drugs and alcohol. these conditions combine in a vicious cycle that might lead to suicide.
That said, having a mental health disorder such as depression and anxiety could cause you to turn to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate. This could lead to addiction - which might eventually lead to the development of suicidal behavior.
