  • Studies may address populations as well as vulnerable/risk groups or health systems e.g. related to early recognition and treatment of mental disorders or the interplay between physical and mental illnesses. (
  • Part of the reason why people with substance use disorders (SUDs) do the irrational things they do in order to get high or drunk is because a large majority are also facing difficulties with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other mental illnesses. (
  • For example, dopamine (a neurotransmitter that carries messages from one neuron to another and is associated with the brain's reward system) is typically affected by addictive substances and may be involved in the development of depression, schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders [ 3 ]. (
  • Stress is also something that impacts dopamine levels and the development of mental disorders and the inclination to use drugs or alcohol. (
  • Likewise, because of the effects drugs and alcohol have on the brain, substance abuse will worsen symptoms of mental illness and can actually lead to the development of psychological disorders. (

  • This happens when you receive a diagnosis for both a substance use disorder as well as a co-occurring mental health disorder. (
  • These options will provide recovery services for both the addiction as well as the co-occurring mental health disorder that you have been struggling with. (
  • For instance, if you were addicted to drugs and alcohol, you had a high likelihood of developing a mental health disorder. (
  • On the other hand, if you were living with an untreated and unmanaged mental illness, you had a high risk of abusing drugs and alcohol and ending up with a substance use disorder. (
  • As a result, integrated treatment programs came into being to provide the dual diagnosis recovery options that people who are struggling with addiction and a co-occurring mental health disorder need to achieve full recovery. (
  • Although receiving a dual diagnosis might be simply, understanding the relationship between the substance use disorder and the co-occurring mental or behavioral health disorder can be relatively difficult. (
  • Although this might work in the short term, it will only worsen your mental health disorder. (
