What Causes Alcoholism & Drug Addiction?
The Dr. is IN

The majority of people with a long term addiction to alcohol or other drugs have an underlying mental illness or disorder. That disorder may be depression, anxiety, phobias, etc. The problem with most treatments for drug addiction, is they do not treat the underlying cause of the addiction, they only treat the addiction itself.

This is why most people who enter rehabs or programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous will relapse after completion of treatment. Their mental disorder caused their addiction yet it was never addressed or even recognized.

In conclusion, If you are a long term addict, you are mentally ill. You're a nut-job, face it. You need to go to a shrink or a doctor and get yourself on Prozac or Xanax.
