Is Addiction A Disability?

After a very bad car accident in 2009, I developed an addiction to a prescription painkiller. I am currently seeking medical help. Unfortunately, my addiction affected my performance at work and I was terminated by my employer. I never got the chance to file for disability benefits and I currently have no source of income. What are my options?

Industrial Alliance provides group benefits at my job. When I was in rehab and couldn’t work, I applied for long-term disability but they argued that I am not really disabled, even though my addiction affected by ability to function day-to-day. Is there any way to fight this?
