Resurgence Behavioral Health analyzes the effects of Covid-19 and substance abuse. Evidence-Based Rehabs For Veterans and multiple locations across the country to accommodate just about anyone in need.

— Almost a year has passed since America began to take preventive measures to slow the coronavirus spread. Still, experts are already expressing concern about the secondary effects that we will see from COVID-19. Millions of Americans are unemployed, and many businesses are closing their doors or reducing their hours. Social isolation and low income mean that many people are stuck in their homes, and others cannot move to more remote work roles.

To better understand how drug use is currently affected by the pandemic, Resurgence Behavioral Health surveyed drug and alcohol use. They projected that drug abuse and addiction rates have increased during a pandemic due to limited recreational resources access. They conducted their survey last month and saw the first signs of results.

Many respondents show high drug and alcohol use, and in some cases, the overdose rates have increased by 60%. The question arises as to which drugs are available, in which case overall drug use will increase.

Participants were asked why they were compelled to take these substances last month. Many reported using them for pain management, relaxation, or as part of their daily life, such as drinking or eating dinner.

The survey results suggest that numerous people are taking drugs and alcohol to cope with the pressure caused by the coronavirus. Intense situations often affect people’s mental health, causing depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders.

When people take drugs or alcohol to cope with these mental disorders, they can develop a Dual Diagnostic or co-occurring disorder. The use of medicines to manage life circumstances such as stress or boredom can become a habit that leads to a substantial consumption disorder. This should be considered when researching inpatient drug and alcohol-withdrawing facilities.

Addiction counseling and support services are more critical than ever and have resources to help those struggling with their mental health. Many support groups have moved their meetings to online platforms, and telemedicine services allow patients to receive mental health care at home.

A person experiencing substance abuse issues may also have an undiagnosed mental illness. Sadly, addiction may cause real, underlying conditions to go undetected, denying the comprehensive treatment people need.
