Alcoholism and Drug Addiction

Alcoholism and drug addiction may not be considered as disabling impairments by the Social Security Administration; however, someone who has a drug or alcohol addiction may nevertheless be found disabled if the alcoholism or drug addiction is not "a contributing factor material to the determination of disability." There are a couple of common misunderstandings about this issue. First, a health problem resulting from alcoholism or drug addiction may be the basis for disability. Many people dealing with alcohol or drug addictions end up with severe liver disease, organic brain syndromes, or other problems that can be the basis for approval of benefits. The hope is that approval of benefits will enable an individual to obtain medical help and assistance for all contributing factors to their inability to work.  For more information, contact us today.
