Disability Benefits for Substance Abuse Victims!
Dependency on a recreational drug, alcohol or any other medicinal based drug can have detrimental effects on the user. The dependency is mostly seen to lead to abuse of those substances which have a very negative impact on one’s social, personal as well as work life. The addiction is characterized by a compulsion to indulge in that particular substance and the user feels that it would be difficult to live without it. People in this unfortunate situation have a disability and thus it must be understood that substance abuse is taken very seriously by the Canadian government. The difficulties associated with the condition include loss of emotional control, drain of financial resources (and possibly debt) as well as withdrawal symptoms for those who can’t manage to wean themselves off or those who are trying to treat themselves of the addiction.
Living a normal life while being addicted to substances described above can be very difficult, if not impossible. If not diagnosed early, the addiction can lead the affected person to cause further damage to his or her health both physically as well as psychologically. This is why it is important for you to understand that you have the full support of the Canadian government in helping you get better if you are abusing any substance.
It is also important for you to know that substance abuse is classified as a disability by the Canadian Revenue Agency which means you qualify for disability benefits. These disability benefits will allow you to ease the financial pressure you might be feeling as a result of your addiction. Moreover, these benefits will ensure that the cost of getting treatment is not a burden on you or your family. Hence, you must educate yourself fully on what treatments are available to you and then claim your disability benefits quickly because the more you delay things, the worse the situation will become
So what do you need to do to claim disability benefits? Note that in order to claim disability benefits you’re going to have to do a little hard work. You’re going to have to understand not only your condition but also all the technicalities involved in making a disability benefit claim.
