Understand the Facts: Substance Use Disorders
Anxiety and Depression Association of America
According to the ADAA, "Moderate alcohol consumption—a glass of wine with dinner or a few drinks at a party—is no cause for concern for many people. However those with anxiety disorders may find that alcohol or other substances can make their anxiety symptoms worse. And they are two to three times more likely to have an alcohol or other substance abuse disorder at some point in their lives than the general population."
