Depression is an illness which, in its acute form, can lead to enormous physical pain, emotional debilitation, and mental blockages on just about everything you can think of. Depression is a dangerous thing to have for very long, because some people are just not able to hold up under it as well as other people.
Depression can be caused by withdrawal from drugs if someone engages in drug abuse. It can be caused by withdrawal from alcohol, if an alcoholic goes too long without being able to find or receive a drink.
Also, depression can lead to drug abuse and alcoholism. It is not known which is greater, the amount of depression caused by substance abuse, or the substance abuse which results from depression.
One thing is for certain. The two are very interrelated, and that means that you should be on the watch for potential substance abuse if one of your employees is acting more depressed than normal over a long period of time. Conversely, if one of your workers yields an unwanted drug testing result, you may want to keep an eye of them for any visible signs of depression, including listlessness, lack of interest in their surroundings, shutting down emotionally and therefore mentally when the pressure is on, and so forth.
