Drugs and/or alcohol LEECH vitamins, minerals and amino acids from your system. As does stress and depression. It is very, very difficult for ANYONE to recover from these addictions and mental illness issues UNLESS they REPLACE the lost elements.
Just think about that for one minute.
BILLIONS are made in the developed world by treatment centers, government treatment centers and the pharma companies that make methadone, tranquilizers, benzos etc. used in treatments, so why would they bother telling you about the basic requirements for wellness.

Disclaimer: I am not a doctor or a nutritionist. I am a person who has felt the need to research other options to various ailments, problems, “diseases” than the pharma based “solutions” which all seem to lead to extra “side effects”. “Side effects” is a mis-use of words – a side effect is an EFFECT – usually a new problem, needing more medication which result in more “side-effects”, needing more medication which result in more…. you get the picture?
