What is a depression?

During a depression you feel sad and disconnected from your life over a prolonged period of time and throughout each day. You hardly experience any pleasure in your life. In addition, depression is also characterised by other symptoms. These must be present for at least two weeks. Depression will have a massive impact on daily life.
A combination of depression and drug or alcohol addiction is in fact very common as people tend to sedate their depressive disorders with alcohol or drugs and thereby develop a substance use disorder or addiction. Alcohol and/or drugs thereby become a form of self-medication to reduce their depressive thoughts. Genetic factors and a traumatic events can also that both disorders occur simultaneously.
