Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Waskom 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 tends to occur concurrently with substance abuse and addiction. In fact, about 66 percent of all the people who have been diagnosed with BPD have abused these substances at least once in their lives.
You might start using drugs and alcohol to self-medicate the signs and symptoms of your mental health condition. Eventually, this could cause you to start suffering from addiction - over and above the borderline personality disorder that you were diagnosed with. In this situation, you would require dual diagnosis treatment to manage both of these disorders.
The signs and symptoms of depression are highly varied. The important thing to keep in mind is that these symptoms will increase in severity if you are also struggling with a co-occurring substance use disorder, or an addiction involving drugs and alcohol.
For instance, your depression could increase your risk of suicidal ideation and attempts. Other signs include pessimism, hopelessness, feeling useless, irritability, trouble concentrating, issues with sleep, changes in weight and appetite, and loss of interest in your personal goals, hobbies, and work.
Irrespective of the symptoms you display, it is recommended that you seek professional help from a dual diagnosis center.
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.
