Addiction is a just a Symptom

Mental Health Disorders refer to the medical conditions that disrupt a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. They can be the reason a person begins to use drugs or alcohol in the first place.

Unfortunately, sometimes instead of seeking proper treatment, many will try to manage their mental health disorders on their own. While exercise, eating right and getting enough sleep are great tools in a toolbox to help someone struggling with a mental health condition, specific treatments like therapy and medication are actually the keys to real recovery.
