Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Vienna, 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.
If you engage in suicidal behavior, there is a probability that you could be suffering from depression or struggling with a substance use disorder, or an addiction involving drugs and alcohol. these conditions combine in a vicious cycle that might lead to suicide.
That said, having a mental health disorder such as depression and anxiety could cause you to turn to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate. This could lead to addiction - which might eventually lead to the development of suicidal behavior.
If the functioning of the various neurotransmitters in your brain - particularly noradrenaline, dopamine, and serotonin - is altered, there is a high probability that you will develop borderline personality disorder. This is because these neurotransmitters are charged with the regulation of certain urges and emotions.
Abusing drugs and alcohol could lead to such alteration. For this reason, substance abuse and addiction are linked to borderline personality disorder. In case you get such a diagnosis, you should seek dual diagnosis treatment to manage all these disorders and get started on the road to full recovery in the long term.
There are highly qualified dual diagnosis treatment programs available today. These programs are suitable if you have been diagnosed with both a mental health disorder as well as a substance use disorder or an addiction.

This is because you need them to manage all the disorders that you have been struggling with at the same time so that none of them aggravates the other or causes you to suffer a relapse or a recurrence of any of these disorders.
