Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Quitman, 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.
Anxiety disorders - such as generalized anxiety disorder - tend to affect people at all stages of life. Typically, these disorders will manifest with mild symptoms. However, these symptoms will often worsen, especially if you abuse drugs and alcohol to try and manage the conditions that you are struggling with.
On the other hand, if you abuse drugs and drink alcohol, you might develop the signs and symptoms of anxiety disorders. At the same time, you will experience worsening symptoms as your substance abuse continues growing into tolerance, dependence, and addiction. Without dual diagnosis treatment, it might be difficult to overcome all these disorders.
Research has shown that there are environmental factors that could play a role in the development of borderline personality disorder. These factors include but are not limited to growing up in unstable environments or in a family situation where you are surrounded by people with substance abuse problems and other mental disorders. It could also be due to the trauma you suffered during your childhood.
Irrespective of the environmental factors, your borderline personality disorder could eventually give rise to the development of addiction especially if you start using substances to self-medicate this condition.
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.
