It is not uncommon for people to know someone in the family or amongst friends who has struggled with addiction. Many people have a difficult time understanding addiction. Many different reasons exist why a person may experience depression but understanding how drug rehabilitation and depression go hand-in-hand can be helpful.
Treatments are usually set up so the individual can learn more about how to handle depression and other mental health disorders without the use of drugs or alcohol or self-medication. Counsellors will stress importance of having a doctor support the person, seeking counselling and taking the right mix of medications to treat both depression and addiction where needed. Learning to cope with depression can help a person be more successful in recovery with a plan in place. Suffering from depression can cause a person to relapse to alleviate symptoms so support networks are key to staying clean and sober while dealing with mental health challenges.
