Millions of individuals around the world use illegal drugs or alcohol as an escape from their daily reality. With alcohol or drugs, an abuser is able to momentarily push away their negative emotions and thoughts concerning their mental health issues and personal problems. While the pain of an individual’s psychiatric problems may subside for a short amount of time during alcohol or drug use, it does not resolve their issues.
To avoid their mental health issues, many individuals keep returning to an addictive substance to experience its numbing effects. This repetitive pattern of addiction takes over an individual’s life slowly, destroying their relationships, finances, and hopes for the future. The momentary relief experienced from alcohol or drugs does not address the real issues that are affecting the individuals. After the effect of an addictive substance wears off, the individual still has problems that will not go away without professional rehabilitative treatment.
