Often times mental health disorders go untreated or even misdiagnosed. Because of this, many individuals find their own ways to cope with their issues and illnesses, often times “self-medicating” with drugs and/or alcohol. Some individuals are provided with a prescription drug to help with their pain issues or other illness, but they don’t always take the medication as prescribed and end up abusing the drug which can lead to addiction and other problems.
In order for an individual to fully recover and go on to live a fulfilling life, it is important to treat mental issues and substance / or medication abuse together.
