Substance Abuse & Mental Health

Substance abuse significantly impacts individuals, families and communities through broken relationships, lost employment, untreated associated mental health issues, and resulting chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Additionally, substance abuse and mental health problems are more often co-occurring disorders and when one goes untreated, the other will likely get worse as well. “By 2020, mental and substance use disorders will surpass all physical diseases as a major cause of disability worldwide.”
