What is a recovering alcoholic or addicts biggest health concern?
Although many alcoholics and addicts worry about their liver (which is, of course, a concern), they should also be even more worried about their mental health.
A large number of alcoholics and addicts end up with depression, bi-polar disorder, and other mental health problems. In extreme cases, they may even end up with irreversible brain damage.
Thank you, Diane. In working with recovering alcoholics my primary focus is on physical health. I do find that the road to health begins with or coincides with working on ones mental health. Mental health may be the more important of the two.
