Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in West Burke, 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.
It is possible to develop psychosis as a result of abusing alcohol. however, this will typically happen after day - or even weeks - of intense alcohol abuse. If you have been struggling with a chronic alcohol use problem that has been going on for years, you might also be vulnerable to the hallucinations and intense paranoia that are typical hallmarks of psychosis.
This is because alcohol produces damaging effects on the brain. This could happen as a result of the lack of the vitamin B complex thiamine, which could cause you to develop Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome.
Substance abuse and schizophrenia are often mistaken because they create similar and related symptoms. As a result, this might make it difficult to properly diagnose these co-occurring disorders. However, these disorders are now being studied independently by scientific researchers - as well as concurrently - to improve the current accuracy of any dual diagnosis that you might receive.
The important thing to note is that abusing drugs while struggling with schizophrenia could lead to the occurrence of a substance use disorder or an addiction. This is one of the reasons why you should not turn to these substances even if you are compelled to do so.
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.
The treatment services provided by these programs are highly effective and integrated. 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.
