Drug Addiction and Bipolar Disorder

Drug addiction and bipolar disorder often occur together and can serve to both precipitate and exacerbate each other. Unfortunately, both are also conditions that are generally misunderstood and as a result many people who suffer from these diseases are unable to obtain effective treatment or any treatment at all. Bipolar condition can be difficult to recognize in an individual and in some cases people suffer with it for years before getting help. In fact, some of the symptoms of bipolar can drive a person to turn to drugs or alcohol in an effort to cope with the. And because substance abuse often precipitates mental illness, any potential or repressed bipolar issues can be brought forth by co-occurring addictions or alcoholism. Understanding the relationship between drug addiction and bipolar disorder is critical to developing effective treatment plans.

Bipolar is a condition that is categorized by strong and consistent changes in mood or emotional state. These changes shift between depressive and manic episodes. During depressive states, the afflicted individual may feel hopeless, insecure, have poor self worth and no motivation to do anything. During manic states the person often will be extremely energetic, overly happy and in some cases unable to maintain concentration for long periods of time. These states can last for weeks or months at a time, or they may swing wildly back and forth. According to Internet Medical Health, a group dedicated to providing health related information to the public;

“Bipolar I Disorder affects both sexes equally in all age groups and its worldwide prevalence is approximately 3-5%.” And; “The condition has a high rate of recurrence and if untreated, it has an approximately 15% risk of death by suicide. It is the third leading cause of death among people aged 15-24 years, and is the 6th leading cause of disability (lost years of healthy life) for people aged 15-44 years in the developed world.”

The rates and consequences are disturbing considering that bipolar often occurs with drug addiction or alcoholism. In some cases it may appear that one condition caused the other, but in reality it’s impossible to tell what the exact relationship is. In fact, some people were treated for bipolar for years before they developed a drinking or drug problem, and some people were drug users for years before being diagnosed with bipolar. Whatever the case may be having both conditions at the same time presents a unique set of challenges to both sufferers and therapists.

Drug addiction or alcoholism must necessarily be given priority treatment status €” at least until post acute withdrawal syndrome symptoms are under control. Once the initial stage of treatment has passed, treatment for bipolar disorder must be incorporated into the program. This is often accomplished through the application of reality based and evidenced based practices the include individual, group and family therapy coupled with proper nutrition, exercise and medication.

Bipolar is a condition for which there is no cure but only treatment, and the same is true for addiction or alcoholism. This means that people who suffer from both conditions will ALWAYS suffer from both conditions and so will need to be treated accordingly.

When times get tough for small businesses there are a few things that a small business owner can do to reduce cost. There are so many cost in your business that are fixed costs, like your rent, phone bill, inventory, and your employee labor cost. There are only a few areas in a small business that the small business owner really has any control over and they are the owners salary and advertising cost.

Now, nobody wants to make less money so usually one of the first expenses that gets reduced, or sometimes even cut out, is the advertising cost. When you as a small business owner sees your business revenues dropping the most common reaction is to reduce, or even cancel, planned advertising. This is usually a big mistake. Without an aggressive advertising program attracting new customers your small business revenues will drop even further. But you have to be smart about how you spend your advertising budget. High cost advertising like television, radio, and even some print media can be effective, but they tend to not give you the biggest return on your advertising dollar. There are more cost effective ways to spend your advertising budget in areas like Pay-Per-Click online advertising with the large search engines on the internet. Also, if you don’t have a website for your business this would be a good time to expand your online presence. If your business is really small then maybe instead of a website you could start a free blog from Blogger.com or WordPress.com and tell people about what you have to offer. Social marketing can be an inexpensive way of reaching new customers and letting them know the services or products that are offered by your small business.

Since reducing advertising cost during business down turns is a common reaction from most small business owners then it is more than likely your competition will be cutting their advertising budget giving you an open door to attract new customers and gain market share for your business.

Going against the trend is not an easy thing to do, but if you can do it you will see rewards while other are wondering what happened to their small business.

Good reputation

Official certification

This is made possible by checking on their website for the presence of the following: name of the provider and the acquiring bank, privacy policy, legal disclaimer, and an FDIC registration. They must be a licensed and authorized entity before they can conduct such business.

Systematic processing
