For those who struggle with a substance use disorder, the physical self has been seriously disrupted. Drug and alcohol addiction can profoundly affect an individual’s whole body, not just the brain. The body’s organs and functions need to recover, too. It’s also not uncommon for people in active addiction to also struggle with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, or post-traumatic stress disorder. To this end, medical and psychiatric care are often necessary in order for people to function and think more clearly as they enter the recovery process.
