Treating Anxiety and Depression With Addiction

AIA -- Ad8 -- 10-03-12

Anxiety and Depression goes hand-in-hand with addiction. The two have a sort of symbiotic relationship: drugs and alcohol usage can give you depression and can cause panic and anxiety attacks, and — likewise — someone who is predisposed to having depression and anxiety is more likely to seek relief through drugs and alcohol.

As the two have such a mutual relationship, is makes sense: “You can’t treat drug and alcohol abuse and dependency, unless you are treating the underlying depression and anxiety at the same time.”
