Both substance abuse and mental illness tend to cause each other. For instance, if you live in Yelm 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.
Depression is one of the conditions that most commonly occurs with substance abuse and addiction. However, there are different types of this mental health disorder. They include but are not limited to major depression, Dysthymia, seasonal affective disorder, atypical depression, and many others.
Irrespective of the condition that you are struggling with, abusing drugs and alcohol can only provide temporary relief. Over time, this form of substance abuse will cause you to become addicted. When this happens, you will only be able to achieve full recovery after seeking dual diagnosis treatment to manage all the conditions that you were diagnosed with.
If you are struggling with co-occurring disorders such as impulse control disorder with substance abuse and addiction, it is recommended that you seek integrated treatment. also known as dual diagnosis treatment, this type of rehabilitation will ensure that both of these conditions are managed simultaneously.
Without this kind of treatment, there is a high risk that the symptoms of your unmanaged impulse control disorder could cause you to continue abusing drugs and alcohol even after the addiction has been managed. If the impulse control disorder is treated but you still abuse these substances, it is highly likely that the symptoms of this mental illness will later crop up.
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.
