I'm wondering if I should OR CAN, file a claim for the diagnosed alcohol abuse secondary to my mental condition?
What evidence do you need to claim this?
I went to the VA clinic yesterday for my 1ST visit to a VA clinic.
The VA DOC asked me if I want to go to alcohol abuse treatment. I told him I would think about it.
I kind of can't stop drinking, and I don't really feel like going to any treatment for it.
I'm wondering if I should file a claim for the diagnosed alcohol abuse secondary to my mental condition?
The QTC Psychologist documented it and wrote it up saying, The Diagnosis for substance abuse is alcohol abuse. The substance abuse is related to this Axis 1 diagnosis: Adjustment Disorder.
The Mental condition was Adjustment Disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood.
