Drug/alcohol abuse often causes depression. It can also sometimes arise from depression, from attempts to self-medicate with alcohol or some drugs, either originating or worsening an existing depression. Drug alcohol abuse needs to be treated in its own right --- antidepressants won't help unless the person also happens to be depressed
