So it's really important for people to understand that when someone has a brain disorder, be it mental illness or substance use disorders, that they don't see and blame the person for having symptoms of their mental illness or having symptoms for their substance use disorder, that it's part of the cycle of any chronic illness and that at this point treatment can be very effective, that when people are able to access treatment.
In the latest episode of One Hour at a Time, host Mary Woods discusses the importance of understanding the underlying causes of substance abuse and mental illness, and how effective treatment can be when people are able to access it.
