She describes underlying conditions that lead to self-medication such as ADHD, loneliness, anxiety, depression, and boredom. Alcohol abuse seems to be on the rise, especially during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Aliya also discusses specific clinical programs that she is spearheading, describes certain signs that lead to substance abuse, and provides medical, cognitive, and holistic ways for patients and their families to have conversations that lead to recovery.
