Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Hamilton Help for Dual Diagnosis

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.

Some Are More Prone To Addiction Than Others:

Vulnerability to drugs and alcohol depends on person to person. This is because your environment, genes, family history and mental health all play a vital role in determining the impact of these substances on you.

Another factor which affects your vulnerability is how early you started using these substances. The earlier you start, the higher the chances of you being addicted. Also, the method you use to use the drug matters a lot. If you are smoking or injecting it, the chances of getting addicted to the drug increase.

Your Journey to Recovery

In April 2013, it was estimated that approximately 120,000 people die in United States due to drug or alcohol addiction. Do you want to be a statistic this year? Then its time to seek help. Stop making excuses and pick up the phone and call a drug and alcohol rehab center in Hamilton.

Hamilton Addiction Treatment Centers

People showing symptoms of dual diagnosis should be referred to any Hamilton Addiction Treatment Centers to manage their condition effectively. Once admitted, the psychiatrist first examines the person s condition. The examination involves holistic assessment (physical, mental, emotional and social), series of interviews and laboratory tests to establish the existence of dual diagnosis. If the person is found to have hallucinations, delusions, or other mental disabilities because of drug overdose, he/she would usually be detoxified first. Once the person gains his/her sanity back, he/she will then be subjected to Hamilton substance abuse programs. These programs are made to help drug addicts realize their condition, accept who they are and cope from the addiction itself.

Other treatments will also be available such as psychopharmacology (medication treatment), psychotherapy (individual, group or family therapy) and behavioral management (made to alter behavior and help a person attain effective coping strategies).
