While men and women are both at risk, women are twice as likely as men to develop depression. For those who also struggle with substance abuse, depression treatment needs to be incorporated into their treatment plan for the best chance of recovery from both diagnoses.
Depression Treatment is a Necessary Treatment Component for Many Women in Recovery from Addiction
Depression is treatable and when detected early the chances of re-occurrence is minimized. Many factors that lead women to abuse substances also contribute to the development of this illness. Depression in women often coexists with substance abuse as a coping mechanism which is why an extensive evaluation is needed when seeking treatment. It is important to have a history of symptoms along with the duration and the severity of their effects.
