If you live in Ringgold and you start abusing drugs and alcohol, there is a high risk that you might develop a co-occurring mental health disorder. On the other hand, if you have an undiagnosed mental illness, there is a likelihood that you might start abusing these substances to self-medicate the symptoms of your mental illness.
Research studies show that substance abuse and mental health disorders tend to have some underlying causes in common. These might include changes in the composition of the brain, early exposure to traumatic and stressful events, and genetic vulnerabilities.
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.
It is recommended that you seek dual diagnosis treatment to manage all of the disorders that you have been struggling with simultaneously so that one does not cause the other to recur in the future.
This is especially true if you have been diagnosed with both substances abuse as well as another co-occurring mental health or medical disorders. Although these disorders tend to occur at the same time in many cases, it is possible to overcome them. To be able to do so, you will have to go through a highly integrated dual diagnosis treatment program.
