Symptoms of Addiction and Depression

Often depression and addiction can work hand-in-hand. It can be difficult to tell which led to the other. Was it depression leading to addiction or the other way around? Drug abusers will usually lose their passion for things that interested them earlier and will stop interacting with their friends and family. These are the signs of depression and can even be signs of addiction. People may feel anxious, lose sleep, become angry or irritable, feel restless and lose the energy to work, or feel that they are totally helpless. These can give rise to depression and can also make addiction worse.

How Depression and Addiction Work Together

If you or someone you care about is undergoing depression or addiction, it’s time to do something about it. Addiction and depression are curable. Drugs and alcohol only fix depression temporarily. The euphoria from addictive behavior lasts only for a short while and the depression always returns. Some drugs can also alter the way your brain works which can cause further damage. Depression and addiction operate in a cycle that will only get worse without treatment. Depression and addiction need to be treated together to ensure that a person fully recovers from both problems. Integrated rehab for a dual diagnosis is designed to offer more than traditional substance abuse treatment. Integrated rehab treatment works to heal addiction at the source: by treating both addiction and depression at the same time.
