In some individuals, substance use may cause appetite suppression leading to significant weight loss that can trigger the onset of an eating disorder. In other cases, eating disorders and substance abuse can be relied upon for avoidance-based coping. Such strategies are both ineffective and counterproductive in that emotions remain unaddressed, problems go unresolved, and healthy strategies to cope are not developed.
