Health psychology is based on the concept that physical health is not dependent only on the biological process but it depends on the psychology of the individual, their socioeconomic status, culture, etc.
One such example is the consumption of alcohol and some other psychotics can cause addiction or reinforced behaviour and can affect both mental and physical health of an individual. Effective psychological treatments such as deaddiction programs helps the patients to recover from their psychological illness.
