Depression is an ongoing sense of sadness that you may feel regardless of the circumstances that surround you. Although an event can trigger depression, it does not have to be. Things can be going well, and yet you feel sad and hopeless inside.
Symptoms of depression may include:
You may also feel depressed if you have ADHD, bipolar disorder, or anxiety disorder. Depression can also occur as a result of a trauma that you experienced in your past.
When you have depression, you may have a difficult time getting through the low periods. As a result, you may have turned to alcohol or drugs to self-medicate and cope with your depression, which is why you may need depression treatment programs in Northern IL. Whether you use illicit drugs or suffer from prescription drug addiction, it is easy to form more and more of a dependency on the substance over time.
Some of the signs of addiction may include:
Your body builds a tolerance to alcohol and drugs. You need to take more so that you can feel the effect of the substance. Eventually, you will consume large amounts which can cause physical or psychological harm.
If you stop taking the drug, you will experience withdrawal symptoms, which can also include severe depression or anxiety. For this reason, you should seek help at a treatment center when going through drug and alcohol detox.
Depression can occur when you feel guilty each time you take the drug or drink too much alcohol. The substance may make you feel better, but when you come down off the high, you could go through a period of extreme low.
Relapse can occur if you deal with the addiction but do not address your depression. You could be clean for a few days. However, if you suddenly feel down again, you may turn to alcohol or drugs to relieve the depression.
Northern Illinois Recovery Center offers comprehensive treatment for both depression substance abuse through dual diagnosis. We can diagnose the causes and symptoms of your depression while also assessing your addiction.
From there, we can help you develop Northern IL depression treatment programs that may include:
