Substance Abuse and Nutritional Deficiency

Substance abuse can cause a lack of proper nutrition. There are several reasons for this.
First, substance abuse can drastically reduce your appetite. This is why you see addicts who lose a considerable amount of weight as their addiction gets worse. You may be experiencing weight loss yourself.

Second, lack of nutrition can come from a lack of structure in your current environment. In other words, you may not be getting three square meals a day. If this is the case, then there is definitely a nutritional deficiency.

Third, some drugs can hurt different processes in your body circulatory system, digestive system, immune system, or organs. Even if you eat properly, the drugs or alcohol may cause certain systems or organs to break down instead of processing nutrition properly.
