How to Help Someone With Drug Addiction and Depression

When a loved one is struggling with any problem, it can be very difficult to simply sit back and watch them suffer. Caregivers especially want to feel useful and find a way to ease the pain. This response is completely normal and is even more intensified when a loved one is suffering from a mental illness or substance abuse problem. Since the two are often co-occurring, the suffering is that much more intense.

Clinical depression is one of the most common mental health disorders and is also frequently diagnosed in people who have experienced or are at risk of developing a substance abuse problem. Depression comes in many different forms and can range from very mild to very severe, often resulting in suicidal thoughts or tendencies.

Early detection of drug addiction and depression is important. If you suspect that someone you love is struggling with depression and substance abuse, talk to them about getting drug addiction help.
