    @cheffy... While I do think that the majority of people who fall victim to addiction also have some sort of mental health issues, I don't think it's true in 100 percent of the cases. And not everyone with a mental illness turns to self-medication. But yes, dual diagnosis patients are very common.

    Thanks for the post.
