Substance-Related Disorders

A substance related disorder is the regular or frequent use of an illegal or harmful substance (most often an illegal drug and/or alcohol) that causes problems in some aspect of a person’s life. Theses disorders are both common and a public health concern.
A substance related disorder could cause or worsen many medical problems as well as destroy families and lives. People with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or an anxiety disorder, frequently have an associated substance related disorder.
