Addiction may result from people who are self-medicating to cope with either past trauma or a mental health disorder. While abusing drugs or alcohol may temporarily lessen emotional pain, a drug or alcohol addiction actually worsens the symptoms of mental health disorders over time. Drugs and alcohol also cloud peoples’ perspectives on life, so it may appear to them that it isn’t possible to live without drug or alcohol use. However, the truth is that most people can improve their quality of life with professional addiction treatment.
