Comprehensive Care. Trustworthy Staff.
Research shows that active substance use disorders, eating disorders, and mood disorders have a direct impact on the brain and other organs. Often, medical services must be provided. When an individual struggles with any of these disorders, self-care is usually the first sacrifice. Mood disorders can lead individuals to disregard their body’s nutritional needs. Eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia have a direct impact on an individual’s physiology which usually reinforces the mental health issue itself. Also, it is very common for those in the throes of substance use disorder to allow their health to deteriorate as they focus solely on acquiring and using drugs or alcohol. Furthermore, individuals with these disorders often put themselves in high-risk situations endangering and worsening their overall health.
