Rising Instances of Substance Abuse Go Hand in Hand with Mental Disorders

"We are seeing more and more patients who are struggling with a multitude of addictions and mental disorders,” said Dr. Karl Benzio, founder, executive director and a psychiatrist at Lighthouse Network. “These problems and addictions create and then perpetuate a vicious downward cycle. When someone is depressed, anxious or stressed, they may turn to alcohol or drugs, which might numb the pain temporarily, but only exasperate the problems they are experiencing. Adding drugs and alcohol to any issue will never solve it but will only make it much, much worse."
Is There Help for Parenting An Addict?
The feelings you have as the parent of an addict can be panic, exhaustion, and a deep sense of loneliness. And the questions seem endless: How did my child get here? What do I do now? Who can I trust to give me help? If you are living with the pain of an addicted child? View our free resources online that will help!
