Dual diagnosis is a common occurrence in Wood River, 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.
Substance abuse and addiction can increase your risk of engaging in suicidal behavior. For this reason, it is recommended that you try to overcome your addiction and get sober to ensure that you do not continue struggling with this risk.
By so doing, you will get the help that you need to deal with any mental health disorders that you might have - such as anxiety and depression. You will also be able to improve your judgement as well as overcome your drug and alcohol dependence. In the long term, this could reduce your risk of suicidal behavior and potentially save your life.
Post-traumatic stress disorder is one of the most common mental health disorders today. It occurs as a result of experiencing or witnessing traumatic events. If you have this disorder, you might start abusing drugs and alcohol to deal with the feelings of stress, anxiety, and fear that arise from this disorder.
If you suffered a traumatic event, you might eventually be able to overcome the agitation, depression, and anxiety that is caused by these experiences. However, if you develop post-traumatic stress disorder, these symptoms will not disappear unless you seek help.
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.
