Addiction can be caused by a variety of personal instabilities and mental health challenges. When an individual suffers from persistent stress, anxiety, or emotional overload, they may turn to addiction as a way of coping with their distress. Substance abuse is a form of addiction that is specific to the misuse and overuse of harmful substances such as drugs and alcohol. Seeking out support to help deal with underlying issues, as well as overcoming negative behaviors and habits such as drinking and illicit drug use is important to leading a healthy lifestyle, both mentally and physically.
