Addiction is commonly linked to mental health issues. In the past, medical professionals tended to only identify and treated one issue and left the other unacknowledged. This practice caused problems for patients as addiction and mental health issues often influence each other. Although addiction is most commonly associated with gambling, drugs, alcohol and nicotine, it’s possible to be addicted to just about anything, including work, shopping, gaming, the internet and much more. These negativities habits can create a sense of anxiety if sought out habitually or used as a substitute for real happiness or as a way of blocking out difficult issues.

One of the first steps to deal with addiction is to discover the emotional cause of it. The strain of living with an addiction can seriously damage your work life and relationships. In the case of substance misuse, an addiction can have serious psychological and physical effects.
