Dual Diagnosis: Why Substance Abuse Is Linked To Mental Illness

Dual Diagnosis: Why Substance Abuse Is Linked To Mental Illness

Mental illness and substance abuse can overwhelm those affected and their loved ones. Having both problems poses even bigger challenges.

Epidemiological literature has long linked mental illness to substance abuse. People that are substance abusers are more likely to consume drugs and alcohol. And those with mental illness are more likely to be substance abusers. Often abusing hard drugs can cause or greatly exacerbate mental illnesses. These are often referred to as dual diagnosis. Hayver suggests that substance abuse disorders be treated first, even before the mental disorder is treated. Successful treatments of mental disorders typical address the substance abuse disorder as well. Addiction can impact the daily lives and workplace performance of those with mental disorders.

 

People with anxiety, for example, are more often likely to drink to deal with their anxiety. It temporally helps them deal with symptoms. Alcohol can help relax those with anxiety and it can act as an antidepressant. However, overly consuming alcohol can lead to health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other liver conditions. These conditions are especially common for those with social anxiety disorder. However, in the long-run, alcoholism has been shown to worsen anxiety disorders and exacerbate symptoms.

 

Those with mental illness other than anxiety often deal with racing thoughts and mind that never seems to rest. Alcohol, Nicotine, and other addictive drugs have been shown to calm the mind for many of these patients and this allows them to stay off of medication. However, this feeling is only temporary and many of these patients require therapy to help them control impulses in the long-run.

Five Small Business Marketing Trends to Jump On This Year

Five Small Business Marketing Trends to Jump On This Year

The world of marketing is rapidly advancing so that if you want to stay ahead of the competition to make your small business grow, you need to pay attention to the marketing trends and strategies. Automation has been the buzzword for a long time now, but it is still necessary more than ever to have that personal interaction between the business and its consumers. It is thus essential to understand the practical application of the marketing trends and how these can promote your brand and expand your business. Social media is a huge part of digital media today. Businesses can utilize it to engage and interact with their consumers on daily basis. In fact, big data can help businesses obtain an in-depth understanding of their company and reinforce and strengthen their relationship with their customers. In the age of GPS, location-based marketing is another strategy to consider for business growth. With these strategies, your business can broaden your marketing perspective, share experiences, connect with consumers, and take a step towards growth.

2018 is almost over and business is going well. It is imperative to stay up-to-date and respond to the ever-changing market pressures to stay ahead of the competition. The marketing trends that may have worked well a few years ago may not necessarily help a business succeed in the future. The following are some of the upcoming marketing trends to support your business growth in 2018.

 

1. Enhance the Customer Experience

Businesses exist to cater to the customers. Thus, it is of utmost importance to understand the customer needs as well as to get their feedback to be on top of the marketing trends. ‘Chatbots’ and ‘live customer support’ are great ways to support customer queries and share information regarding new products, features and policies. One of the hottest marketing trends is social media; it is the summation of the know-how of business, including services offered, and live chats. 

 

2. Use Location-Based Marketing

Geolocation or location-based marketing is another recent trend in small business marketing. With GPS technology, customers give away the information about their location via mobiles and laptops. Small business can utilize this information to understand the target customers in specific territories and promote their events, products, sale offers and news.

 

3. Add Livestream Video

A great way to create excitement about your brand nowadays is live streaming on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram Live. These are the next level interaction strategies—a marketing trend to engage with customers, answering their questions, and creating buzz around new products.

 

4. Use Micro-Marketing

Here is one cost-effective and time-saving marketing trend. It involves actively targeting customer needs to market products or services; thus, segmenting the customers into appropriate categories. Small business can give a huge shout-out to the right clientele using such a marketing strategy.

 

5. Collect More Data

While "big data" has been a buzzword, such data can be effectively used to understand, assess and collect information about customers. Small or large businesses both need data to cater to the customers in the right manner. Whether your business is web-based or brick and mortar, there are now more ways than ever to learn all about your customers – who they are, where they live and what they need.

 

The above mentioned 5 are top-notch marketing trends for small businesses. There are many other strategies out there, but it all depends on how you utilize these strategies and what you need to take your business to the next level in the future. For more information about marketing trends for small business, visit the source content on the Forbes website.
