Know What Constitues Disability Under Social Security

I was surprised to find substance addiction disorder as a disability under the social security disability list of medical conditions. However, this is in relation to mental disorders brought by substance addiction. The person may lose a job, but still get support for his or her disability.

To decide whether you are disabled, we use a step-by-step process involving five questions:
  • Are you working?
  • Is your condition "severe"?
  • Is your condition found in the list of disabling conditions?
  • Can you do the work you did previously?
  • Can you do any other type of work?
