Substance Abuse & Alcohol Abuse Treatment Programs

image-prMost people are aware that there are a large variety of substances out there that carry some mood-disrupting side effects. The most well-known substances would include alcohol and illegal drugs, which can cause major behavioral changes in the individual taking them. There are also many prescribed medicines that can have similar effects depending on the patient.

While taking any number of substances, a person may experience manic episodes (time periods of exaggerated elation) or depressive episodes (time periods of extreme sadness or feelings of emptiness).

Substance-Induced Mood Disorders can occur during a time when the person is:

  • Taking a medication that causes depressive or manic episodes
  • Intoxicated by a drug
  • Withdrawing from a drug

Symptoms of Manic Episodes

The symptoms of manic episodes can create a feeling of immortality in the affected individual. While this can affect the person’s interpersonal relationships, one of the biggest concerns is the effect it can have on the individual’s life.

These symptoms can include:

  • Elation
  • Confidence
  • Delusional thinking
  • High level of energy
  • Loud and rapid speech
  • Racing thoughts
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Overeating
  • Fast and reckless driving
  • Engaging in wild business schemes

Symptoms of Depressive Episodes

The symptoms associated with depressive episodes can often lead to ruined relationships with family and friends, lowered productivity at work or school, and disruption of everyday life.

These symptoms can include:

  • Loss of interest and pleasure
  • Irritability and anger
  • Changes in appetite
  • Sleep problems
  • Fatigue
  • Slow movement and thinking
  • Feelings of worthlessness and guilt

Treatment for Substance-Induced Mood Disorders?

The treatment may differ depending on whether the substance being used was prescribed for a medical purpose. If this is the case, the doctor may prescribe different medication or change the prescription dosage.

In many cases, treatment begins with a medical evaluation and a medically supervised detoxification from the substance. Psychotherapy is used to help the individual recover from any possible addiction, while also helping them develop appropriate coping skills.
