Mental Health

Depression and addiction can make for a challenging recovery. It is important to find ways of managing the two at once. It may be difficult to understand the causal relationship between depression and addiction, but they coexist in many people’s lives during their journey through recovery.

Many addicts who are in recovery will tell you that they started treating their addiction, but later realized that there was a significant mental health issue as well.

In order to overcome one problem without reverting back into another, you need an understanding of how each affects your life as well as what might help them both simultaneously. As you do, you will discover how your overall quality of living will improve with time and sobriety.
