Mental Health Disorders
The link between mental health and drug addiction disorders has a strong correlation. There are reports of drug users developing mental health issues as the result of ongoing abuse, such as paranoia and other psychosis. There are concerns that drug abuse can increase a user’s vulnerability to mental disorders.
Furthermore, the treatment of drug disorders could lessen the effects of the mental illness. One area where this theory has been quite significantly tested is with cannabis and related cannabinoid substances.
