Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Westfield 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.
OCD - obsessive compulsive disorder - is common in the United States. In fact, studies have reported that at least 1 American in 50 suffers from this mental health disorder. The same studies show that most of these people who have OCD also struggle with addiction involving both drugs and alcohol.
Due to the interaction between these two conditions, there are specialized treatment facilities known as dual diagnosis recovery centers that are focused on managing both of these illnesses. checking into one of these centers could help you get started on the road to recovery from both.
If you have been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder - commonly known as PTSD - you might try to self-medicate the symptoms of this mental health disorder by abusing alcohol and drugs. in the short term, this could give you some relief and make you forget about your suffering.
However, there is a high risk that this form of self-medication could soon give rise to the development of a substance use disorder, or an addiction. When this happens, you will find yourself struggling with both addiction and the co-occurring mental health disorder.
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.
