Alcohol and Drug-Related Health Profiles
Substance use disorder can cause or exacerbate chronic and other health issues. Aging and early-onset addiction multiply the risk factor for co-occurring physical and medical illnesses.

Alcohol and drug abuse affects the body in so many adverse ways that addiction-informed medical treatment is often necessary for reversal or reduction of health issues.

Conditions that often appear concurrently with addiction include:

  • Liver disease, including hepatitis and cirrhosis
  • High blood pressure
  • Malnutrition
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Neurological problems such as stroke
  • Gastrointestinal disorders such as ulcers and colitis
  • HIV/AIDS caused by unsterile needles related to intravenous drug use
  • Kidney disease
  • Bladder disorders such as cystitis, prostatitis, incontinence and resistance to infection
  • Cancer

Medical Conditions Occurring With Substance Use Disorder Require Informed Medical Treatment

  • Chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and cardiac problems are closely monitored and treated during a patient’s treatment at Hanley Center.  Patients’ self-care practices will be included in their aftercare plan recommendations.
  • Chronic pain can be managed successfully and safely in recovery. Successful medical management includes non-narcotic medication when appropriate, and a combination of therapies and practices, from physical therapy to aquatic exercises.

At Hanley, you can be confident that medical conditions are treated by a medical team that also understands the disease of addiction.
