When it comes to life issues that are linked or tied together, people often point to mental health and substance abuse. That isn’t always the case, and it’s not true for everyone, but it’s pretty commonly seen. Generally, it happens because a mental health issue like depression or anxiety leads to trying to find ways to cope with the mental struggle involved. Some coping mechanisms can be unhealthy, like numbing anxiety with alcohol. In other cases, people try to do the right thing by getting a prescription medication to help them, but that may eventually lead to abuse of that medication. Crestview Recovery can help.
The Link Between Mental Health and Substance Abuse
It’s very important to be aware that there is a link between mental health and substance abuse. That doesn’t mean that everyone with a mental health issue will develop substance abuse problems. It also doesn’t mean that everyone who struggles with addiction has mental health issues, as well. But the two are very often linked, with one typically leading to — or happening as the result of — the other. Getting treatment for one issue can help, but treatment for both issues together is the most important way for people to get better and be healthy and whole once again. It can give you a much brighter future.
When you work with the right people to help you on your recovery journey, both mental health and substance abuse issues can be addressed at the same time. That way, you move into recovery with the tools and techniques you need to stay clean and sober, as well as mentally healthy. Leaving one part of the equation untreated can lead to a relapse, which can be more easily avoided when full treatment is a focus. Our professional staff and master level therapists are here to help you address both substance abuse and mental health concerns, so you can feel good about the direction your life and recovery is taking.
