Usually problems with substance abuse and addiction are related to underlying problems that are not always recognizable. In this way, substance abuse frequently can be a symptom of anxiety, depression, or some other related issue. In many cases people are unaware of the underlying problems entirely.
Couples frequently seek therapy because of ongoing distress in their relationship. Couples therapy can be particularly helpful to those who are struggling with frequent unproductive arguments, a lack of intimacy, or difficulty communicating and accommodating each other’s individual wants and needs in a relationship.
