Someone can be diagnosed with a dual diagnosis with a combination of several different substance abuse problems and a number of different mental illness diagnoses. Some of the most common mental illness diagnosis s associated with substance abuse include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and depression. Buffalo alcohol rehab programs are designed to treat both of the diagnoses, the substance abuse and the mental illness.

When choosing a drug rehab in Buffalo, it is important to know the difference between an inpatient facility and an outpatient facility. Inpatient Buffalo dual diagnosis treatment centers provide you with temporary living quarters in the facility, while you are undergoing treatment. Outpatient means that you will go see a therapist and/or substance abuse counselor only during scheduled appointments, which are typically during regular business hours. If you have been diagnosed as dual diagnosis, it is it important to seek a facility that is experienced in treating both the mental illness and the substance abuse.

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.

Outpatient Treatment

This treatment offers the freedom of movement other programs cant which allows patients to maintain a regular commitment to work and family. Unlike residential treatment though, patients do not have the safe environment that isolates them from negativity. A much greater amount of diligence is needed to abstain from drug and alcohol abuse. This is why you are encourage to immediately contact a drug an alcohol rehab in Buffalo if you are struggling with substance abuse.
