What is Stress?

First, it’s important to understand a little bit about stress. There is ‘good’ stress and then there is ‘bad’ stress. While most of us may feel like any kind of stress is bad, that’s not really the case. ‘Good’ stress can help us do well on tests, in interviews, during presentations, and more. In times of immediate danger, stress can save our lives and sometimes the lives of our loved ones.


The body responds to stress in several ways. When you are faced with danger or perceived danger, the pulse rate quickens, the heart rate speeds up, muscles tense up, and the brain uses more oxygen and picks up activity. All of these physical responses occur because the brain is preparing the body to ‘fight’ or ‘flee’, as in ‘fight or flight response’.

After the danger passes, the body returns to normal functioning and life resumes as before. The problem arises when there is chronic stress. With chronic stress, the body remains in ‘fight or flight’ mode for prolonged periods of time. When the body operates in fight or flight mode on an ongoing basis, trouble can begin.

Sadly, this type of chronic stress is what most Americans are living with today. And the impacts on the body, mind, and spirit can be devastating.

有许多不同的方式来应对压力。有些是健康的,有些是不是。如前所述,substance abusecan be a result of chronic stress. Some people may wonder how stress and alcohol or substance abuse are connected.

滥用药物和心理健康服务管理局(Samhsa)报告说770万美国人suffer from a mental health disorder such as depression or anxiety and substance abuse issues such as alcohol addiction. It can be difficult to determine which presented first, but it is often discovered during treatment that the substances were used to help with the other mental health disorder.

No matter which occurred first, it’s important to get treatment for them both at the same time. This will give you the best chance at long-term recovery from both. If, for example, you or a loved one have an alcohol issue but are also suffering from depression it’s vital to treat both. If you only get treatment for the substance use disorder, in this example alcohol dependence, then once you leave treatment without addressing the depression, it’s more likely that you would then pick up alcohol to help ease the pain of the depression. As you can see, it’s essential that any co-occurring disorders be treated at the same time.
