Addictions cause life to spiral out of control.
The patient who is trying to balance their life issues while dealing with an overwhelming desire to misuse drugs or alcohol finds their life soon spiraling out of control. It may affect their family life, relationships, financial and emotional stability, and ability to maintain gainful employment. Drugs and alcohol not only plays a huge part in injuries and deaths related to traffic incidents, but in the work place. Excessive and chronic alcohol consumption causes many serious health issues; liver disease, cancer, heart attacks, and brain damage; just to name a few. Alcohol and drug abuse can not only trigger diseases but compound those that are contracted by the patient as they contribute to the patient making poor health choices, malnutrition, and participating in at risk behavior.
Women who abuse substances are victims of violence more often than those who do not.
They are at an even higher risk of partaking in activities which endanger their safety and welfare as their judgment is impaired and their self-esteem lowered. Many more women who abuse substances or alcohol become victims of violence than those who do not. It becomes a vicious cycle which can stop with drug abuse rehab.
