Addiction and mental health affect a large portion of society. Each person with an addictive behaviour affects 5-7 others (friends, family, and colleagues). The World Health Organization states Mental Health issues coexisting with Substance Use contribute 20% to the cost of the health  burden.- Australia spends 8.5% of GDP on health, 5% on mental health services.

 

Addiction is often a long term chronic issue.

 

Greater understanding leads to higher levels of success in treatment and better health outcomes for those affected even when the individual with the overuse behaviour does not change.
