Getting Help for Depression for the Sake of Your Family

Getting Help for Depression for the Sake of Your FamilyThere is a very strong connection between alcoholism and mental health. If you find that you are now struggling to cope with both alcoholism and depression, or another mental health issue, then it is vital that you get to the bottom of your addiction and work on a resolution for both of these debilitating issues.

Why Do You Drink or Use Drugs?

It is very important to realize that your depression, on its own, does not just have an impact on your ability to lead a normal life. Your depression will have a very deep and lasting impact on the lives of everyone who loves you, including your children, your spouse, and your close friends. As a starting point, ask yourself the following questions to figure out potential causes of your drinking:

  • Do I drink or use drugs when I am sad?
  • What events or people are making me sad?
  • Do I drink because I am depressed?
  • Do I binge drink when under increased stress?
  • Do I drink to steady my nerves when I’m anxious?

As a part of treating depression and alcoholism, it is crucial to treat each of these conditions individually, but at the same time. When you struggle with depression and substance abuse, you need professional treatment that with both issues and your unique problems.
