Alcohol and drug abuse are common "self medications" for depression and/or anxiety. It is usually the result of a sense that the problem is so overwhelming that they are unable to face it, so they turn to alcohol or illicit drugs to provide temporary relief. Unfortunately, the problems only get worse since alcohol and illicit drugs are never any kind of solution to a problem.
