There are many causes of depression including genetic, psychological, and biochemical factors. You may have an increased risk of depression if there is a family history of it, if you have experienced trauma or a major life change, stress, or certain physical illnesses or injuries.

You are not alone and there is nothing to be ashamed of for feelings you are having. You should seek support from someone skilled and trained to best help you.

Understanding Drug Use and Addiction
https://nida.nih.gov/publications/drugfacts/understanding-drug-use-addiction.

Addiction is a chronic disease characterized by drug seeking and use that is compulsive or difficult to control.

This alters your brain function and the brain changes become persistent, which makes treatment plans more individualized and ongoing.

Long-term use causes changes in brain chemical systems and circuits and some affected functions include learning, judgement, decision-making, stress, memory, and behavior.

Addiction is treatable and can be successfully managed with determination and dedication along with support systems and resources.
