Dangers of Mental Illnesses and Co-Occurring Drug Abuse
A Fatal Combination
Mental illness and drug abuse is a fatal combination. A mental illness is a disease of the mind. There are various types of mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and eating disorders. People suffering a mental illness will experience delusional thoughts, and have irrational feelings and perceptions.
The consumption of alcohol and/or drugs will cause a person to lose their judgment and inhibitions. A person suffering with a mental illness and substance abuse may act on a delusional thought that may risk their life, or the life of another. Getting professional treatment is necessary if the individual suffers from mental illness and co-occurring drug abuse.
