Why is overall health important for addiction recovery?
From the time you begin using drugs to the time you complete detox, your addiction is taking a physical toll on your health. Since mental status is connected to physical wellness, restoring your nutrition and physical ability is essential to curating the mental and emotional fortitude you’ll need to stay clean. The sooner we can begin treating your body, the more successful your recovery will be.
What physical health problems can arise from addiction?
Different substances can have different long-term effects on your body. Here are some of the most common:
- Chronic alcohol abuse can cause damage to the liver, heart, brain and pancreas.
- Opioids and inhalants can cause damage to your nervous system and brain.
- Injection drug use can leave your circulatory system and skin vulnerable to infection.
