Mental Illness and Addiction
Mental Illness and Addiction go hand in hand. If a person struggles with depression, anxiety, stress, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) they might turn to drugs or alcohol as a way of self-medicating in order to cope with what is going on in their life. When a loved one has an addiction, they have a disease. The negative repercussion addiction has on a family can linger for many years.
