Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Pittsburgh Help for Dual Diagnosis

Certain mental health conditions commonly contribute to substance abuse. The mental health conditions that may contribute to addiction include:

Depression and depressive disorders

Bi-polar disorder or similar mood disorders

Anxiety

Various personality disorders

Phobias, particularly fears related to socializing

Schizophrenia

Pittsburgh dual diagnosis suggests that you or a loved one is struggling to give up an addiction because of the mental health condition. The best way for Pittsburgh drug addiction programs to help you overcome the substance is by treating both problems at the same time.

How Does Addiction Develop

When you try a drug for the first time, it produces exaggerated effects. Some of these might be psychological in nature; however, a majority of the effects are drug induced. As you continue to engage in the activity of taking drugs and enjoying its pleasurable effects, you begin to reach a state where the dosage does not produce the required effects. This is when you develop what is called a tolerance for the drug.

Under this phenomenon, your body grows accustomed to the drug. Now, whenever you take the dosage that you are accustomed to, your body does not experience the usual high. This of course forces you to increase your drug intake. And the vicious cycle of addiction begins because now you have to continually increase your dosage just to feel a regular high.

Now that you are physiologically dependent on the drug, the chemical balance of your body is changed. At this point, you will realize that you need the drug. This will scare you because you do not want to be dependent on it, so the instant reaction is to stop. Unfortunately, this only further aggravates your health condition because you start to suffer from what are called, withdrawal symptoms.

People with dual diagnosis need a comprehensive management. Help of medical practitioners, support from friends and family are highly encouraged to hasten recovery.
