This is a common form of what is known as “self-medicating.” Some folks stumble on to a drug abuse, only to realize the drug(s) help(s) their underlying mood or anxiety symptoms. When this happens, it can be extremely for the individual to stop their drugs of abuse, because their underlying problems with anxiety will come back.

Otherwise, it can become impossible to get stop the drug of abuse.
