Healthy Thoughts – Drug/Alcohol Addiction & Mental Health
When a person is addicted to a drug, the body’s dependence on the substance is great and will exhibit both mental and physical symptoms if the substance is not consumed. Even when a person knows they are causing harm to their body by using the drug, they cannot stop. Click here to view this Healthy Thoughts article on Drug/Alcohol Addiction & Mental Health. Please feel free to use it in your next bulletin or newsletter.
