There is plenty of evidence to suggest that those who suffer from mental illness are far more likely to develop issues with substance abuse. Some illnesses that frequently go hand in hand with dependency on drugs or alcohol include depression and bipolar disorder. Because our goal is to help you get and stay clean for life, it is essential that the underlying causes of your addiction are examined and dealt with.
