Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Scott 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.
Obsessive compulsive disorder is often accompanied by repetitive mental rituals and physical behaviors that you engage in while believing that they will deflect any unwanted urges and thoughts. These rituals are not connected with the obsessions that you are looking to manage.
If you abuse drugs and alcohol, this action could become one of your common compulsions. This is why there is a high risk that you could develop a substance use disorder - or an addiction - much sooner than someone who is not living with obsessive compulsive disorder.
In case you have been living with post-traumatic stress disorder, you might experience a wide variety of symptoms. These include repeated memories of the trauma you suffered, night terrors, vivid flashbacks, and extreme physical reactions when you are reminded of the traumatic event.
You might also try to avoid thinking and talking about the traumatic experiences as well as the activities, people, and places that trigger any memories of that event. Further, you could suffer emotional numbness, memory lapses, negative feelings about yourself and others, difficulties keeping relationships, and being incapable of experiencing positive emotions.
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.
