Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Vancleave 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.
Borderline personality disorder often runs in families. This is why some scientists now believe that your genetic makeup could have a role to play in the development of this mental health disorder. Further, you might have certain inherited personality traits and temperaments - such as aggression - that could increase your risk of acquiring this disorder.
Irrespective of the cause of the borderline personality disorder, there is also a probability that you might also find yourself abusing drugs and alcohol to self-medicate the symptoms of this illness. This is why addiction and BPD often occur at the same time.
The more you abuse drugs and alcohol while struggling with depression, the higher the risk that you will develop physical and psychological dependence on the effects caused by these addictive substances.
Continued substance abuse, on the other hand, could exacerbate the symptoms of this mental health disorder. It could also cause you to develop other health problems - including but not limited to brain damage and intensified depression down the road.
A better solution would be to seek professional recovery help from a dual diagnosis treatment facility so that you can manage this condition as well as overcome your substance abuse and addiction.
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.
