Mental health disorders and substance abuse often go hand in hand. About half of people with a mental health disorder also struggle with substance abuse. And that works both ways, as 53% of those who use drugs and alcohol have at least one serious mental illness.
Many people use alcohol or drugs to self-medicate and diminish their mental health symptoms. At the same time, substance abuse and dependency raise your risk of developing a mental health disorder. Substance use disorders also worsen the symptoms of an existing psychological disorder.
Many mental health conditions may occur together with substance abuse and addiction. A few of the most common co-occurring disorders include:
People with these mental health conditions may use any substance, from alcohol and opioids to stimulants, hallucinogens, and prescription drugs.
Your symptoms depend on the type of mental health disorder. However, as a group, they cause symptoms such as:
Mental health conditions frequently cause physical symptoms like headaches and body aches, which may improve or get worse if you also use drugs or alcohol, depending on the substance you use.
Treatment for mental health disorders includes medication, therapy, or in many cases, both. Overcoming Addictions LLC provides medication management, which includes prescribing medicines and meeting with you on a regular basis to be sure your symptoms are improving.
Talk therapy (counseling) includes a wide range of therapeutic techniques. Though the techniques may vary, they all help you explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and moods and learn ways to improve your symptoms.
During therapy, you also identify the issues that make you turn to drugs and alcohol. Then you learn ways to control the habits, circumstances, and emotions that trigger your substance use.
