The ‘burden of disease’ in those who recover from addiction


Recent research shows that more than one-third of people who are recovering from addiction continue to experience chronic physical disease.

Excessive use of alcohol and drugs can lead to mental and physical health issues, some of which include anxietydepressiondiabetes, liver disease, and heart disease. Many of these conditions may improve after recovery, but some may linger and diminish the quality of life. A study carried out at the Massachusetts General Hospital Recovery Research Institute in Boston analyzed the impact of recovery on medical conditions that are caused or aggravated by alcohol and drug abuse.

The researchers published their findings in the Journal of Addiction Medicine, in a paper titled "Medical burden of disease among individuals in recovery from alcohol and other drug problems in the United States."
