Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Swannanoa, 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.
NIAAA - the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism - reports that alcohol use disorders often co-occur (or happen at the same time) with bipolar disorder. In turn, these conditions can lead to the development of mania.
In fact, more than 30 percent of the people who live with bipolar disorder abuse and are dependent on alcohol. at the same time, around 20 percent of those who have this disorder also meet the criteria for alcohol abuse. You should also keep in mind that alcohol abuse and addiction could worsen your clinical outcomes if you have already been diagnosed with BP - bipolar disorder.
In case you are living with obsessive compulsive disorder, you might be struggling with obsessions. Some of these common obsessions include having a fear of getting sick, bacteria, viruses, and germs. You might also be obsessed over good and bad numbers. Further, you could experience intrusive thoughts of harm towards yourself or others.
In other situations, there is a risk that you might be obsessed with religious topics and thoughts that you consider to be blasphemous. However, images of sex and sexual acts might also intrude your mind, or you may have an unfounded fear of losing loved ones to illnesses and injuries.
