I know how it feels. You can’t get out of bed. You wish you could dig a hole in the ground and bury yourself with a straw. You probably don’t want to die but you don’t want to live this way either, you just want to disappear until the feeling you’re experiencing right now dissipates and you can get back to the business of what may feel like a pretty miserable life. I understand, and so do so many others.
A Far too Common Problem
Anxiety and depression are incredibly common in this day and age. With people working more, spending less time with their families, and expectations for productivity high in our society, stress is rampant. Often when people are diagnosed with addiction they are diagnosed with a dual-diagnosis. This is a situation where depression and anxiety drive addictions and the addiction drives the person’s mental health issues. It’s not always clear which is the catalyst but the two create a perfect storm for the depressed and anxious addict wherein not only does it makes it exponentially more difficult to get sober, they are at a higher risk for suicide as well.
Healing the Right Way
This is where medically supervised detox programs become incredibly vital to the process of healing. You cannot detox alone. Doing so is dangerous and can result in medical complications, if not emergencies. If you or someone you know is or has been addicted to drugs or alcohol you may already know some of the scary ways it can affect the whole life of the addicted person, from increasing anxiety and depression, to deteriorating the most important relationships.
