Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Superior 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.
In case you continuously struggle with feelings of anxiety and fear on a regular basis, then there is a high probability that you might be living with an anxiety disorder. There are many such types of disorders but they all produce similar or related effects.
In the same way, living with such a disorder could predispose you to substance abuse and addiction. This is because you might resort to drugs and alcohol to deal with the symptoms of the anxiety disorders that you have been diagnosed with.
Borderline personality disorder or BPD is a mental health disorder that is characterized by impulsiveness, intense and unstable relationships, and a distorted image of yourself - among many other signs and symptoms. It often occurs together with substance abuse and addiction.
If you have been diagnosed with this mental health disorder, there is a high likelihood that you might also be struggling with another psychological disorder - including but not limited to eating disorders, depression, and anxiety. You might also be diagnosed with addiction especially if you take drugs and drink alcohol.
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.
