Mental Health and Substance Abuse
Drugs and alcohol abuse are common problems. Like an addiction, it’s a problem that you cannot solve on your own. It affects your physical, mental well-being, your family and friends, hurting the people you love and care for the most. Fighting addiction on your own is hard but you don’t have to do it on your own. We are here to help.
When someone develops an addiction, it is rarely due to the addictiveness of the substance alone. While physical dependency plays a role in drug addiction, there is a wide range of other factors that make a significant contribution to whether or not someone will struggle with abuse. Genetic factors, cultural environment, and social influences all contribute to addiction but one of the strongest connections is mental illness.
