Is there a link between mental health issues and addiction to alcohol or drugs?
We’re extremely proud of our high rate of successful recoveries at our rehab for drug and alcohol abuse. However, this isn’t to say that there’s not still a huge amount of work to be done and awareness to be raised around drug or alcohol addiction in the UK.
Substance abuse is still prevalent, it continues to dramatically impact peoples lives. In England and Wales alone in 2017, the ONS explains that there were over 3,000 deaths which were related to drug poisoning.
Of course, this is 3,000 too many and we’re doing everything we can to provide help to those who need it most.
When it comes to mental health, you’re 50% more likely to develop an addiction to alcohol or drugs if you’re suffering from mental health issues as it’s used as a coping mechanism.
Similarly, if you’re addicted to alcohol or drugs, you’re much more susceptible to developing mental health issues as a result of excessive substance abuse.
At our private drug and alcohol rehab in Grimsby, we have a great focus on mental health treatments and support for those who are suffering from a dual diagnosis.
