People with behavioral disorders mostly show emotional symptoms. However, in rare cases, people with behavioral disorders like substance/alcohol abuse may show physical symptoms such as bloodshot eyes, burnt fingertips, and trembling.
Are behavioral medicine practitioners and psychiatrists the same?
