What is a Mood Disorder? ?

What Is a

Mood Disorder?

A mood disorder is a broad mental health condition that involves all types of depression and bipolar disorders. Anyone can struggle with a mood disorder at any age. Mood disorders can negatively impact your overall emotional state and interfere with your daily life. Sometimes, mood disorders can be difficult to diagnose because they may involve a period of extreme sadness or irritability (a depressive episode) and then alternate to periods of extreme happiness (a manic episode). Failing to treat your mood disorder safely and healthily can result in various negative consequences. Not only does delaying treatment lower your general well-being and quality of life, but you may be tempted to cope with your mood disorder symptoms by abusing drugs or alcohol. Don’t let your mood disorder and addiction control your life. Cedar Oaks Wellness offers mood disorder treatment in Cincinnati to help you live a happier, healthier life. Contact Cedar Oaks Wellness Center today to learn more about how our mental health services in Cincinnati can help you today.

How Can a Mood Disorder Impact Addiction?

A mood disorder is a serious mental health condition. If left untreated, a mood disorder can interfere with your personal and professional relationships, and even tempt you to look for unhealthy coping strategies to reduce your symptoms, such as abusing drugs or alcohol. Drugs may temporarily mask your mood disorder symptoms in the short term. Yet, abusing drugs or alcohol is an unhealthy coping strategy for managing your symptoms and can increase your risk of developing a substance use disorder.

This is because the more and more you abuse drugs or alcohol as a means to cope with your mental illness, the more your brain becomes dependent on drugs to provide a certain desired effect. Done repeatedly, this can result in you suffering from not just a mood disorder but also a substance abuse disorder.

A dual diagnosis can be challenging to treat as it requires treating mental illness and addiction simultaneously. Otherwise, failure to treat one condition but not the other condition can increase your risk of relapsing. Our mood disorder treatment in Ohio works to simultaneously treat both your mood disorder and substance abuse disorder to help you achieve life-long sobriety.

What Causes a Mood Disorder?

There is no single cause for developing a mood disorder. However, several risk factors can contribute to developing a mood disorder. These risk factors include:

  • Environmental Factors: Trauma, chronic stress, or childhood abuse may put you at risk for developing a mood disorder.
  • Genetics: If you have a family member that struggles with a mood disorder, this may increase your likelihood of developing a mood disorder.
  • Biological Factors: Depending on your brain chemistry/ an imbalance of brain chemicals may contribute to developing a mood disorder. 

different treatment options

Dual Diagnosis Treatment Options

If you have a dual diagnosis and are struggling with both a mood and substance abuse disorder, you must receive care to treat both conditions simultaneously. Otherwise, failure to treat one condition and not the other can put you at risk of relapsing.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to treating a mental illness and addiction. Below are three common treatment methods.

Depending on the severity of your dual diagnosis, medications may be prescribed to either better manage your mood disorder symptoms, help ease your withdrawal symptoms or both. Common medications used to treat mood disorders include antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and antipsychotics. Medication-assisted treatment can also be used with a combination of other therapies to better manage your symptoms. 

Psychotherapy is a form of talk therapy that helps individuals identify their unhealthy emotions, thought patterns, and behaviors and then learn new techniques to change them. Psychotherapy can be either in a group therapy setting or a one-on-one, individual therapy session. Common psychotherapy types include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and psychodynamic therapy. 

Some clients may benefit from more alternative therapies to better manage their mood and substance abuse disorder symptoms. Common examples of alternative treatment therapies include:

  • Nutrition and Wellness
  • Equine Therapy
  • Yoga and mindfulness-based therapies
  • Art Therapy
