Iris Healing - Depression and Addiction
Studies have shown a connection between addiction and depression. Approximately one-third of patients with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) also have substance use disorders. According to multiple surveys, half of the patients that experience a mental illness throughout their lives will also experience substance use disorder, and the two disorders can feed into one another creating a cycle.

Depression can lead to drug use in an attempt to self-medicate depression symptoms. Similarly, withdrawal from a substance may lead to depression symptoms. Patients who struggle with depression and use drugs to cope can form an addiction to the substance and a dependency on it to feel “normal.”

A significant relationship between depression and addiction is shown in the DAD (Depression, Addiction, and Denial) effect. The DAD effect is a growing problem that occurs in individuals who struggle with depression, substance use disorder, and denial of their issues.

National World War II Memorial
The World War II Memorial honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S., the more than 400,000 who died, and all who supported the war effort from home. Symbolic of the defining event of the 20th Century, the memorial is a monument to the spirit, sacrifice, and commitment of the American people.

Korean War Veterans Memorial
Set aside as a place of remembrance for the people who served in this hard-fought war half a world away.

This Memorial serves as a testament to the sacrifice of American military personnel during one of this nation's least popular wars.
