Treatment For Depression
Studies have shown that there is a high percentage comorbid rate of depression and substance abuse in adults because one condition usually causes the other. Our rehab center may be able to help those who suffer from depression, substance abuse, or both.
Substance abuse and depression
Substances that are abused affect the brain, so substance abuse has a direct link to causing depression. Any amount of alcohol drank will affect the brain in a negative way. Once drunk, you are more likely to make bad decisions, which can trigger more depression. Although cocaine is a stimulant, depression sinks in once the initial high has been achieved.
Depression is also a leading cause of substance abuse with nearly a third of people with alcohol addiction suffering from depression at some point in their lives. It is also socially acceptable to self medicate after a breakup, job loss, or other traumatic event. Even a bad day at work can lead to one too many at happy hour! While many people may just be functional alcoholics, psychotherapy alone or a combination of therapy and medication is a better alternative. Substance abuse will only cause depression, which may get aggravated if negative events are repeated. Once you realize you are going around in circles, anxiety may arise.
