Substance Abuse

Substance abuse involves the harmful and excessive use of drugs or alcohol, resulting in detrimental effects on a person's health, relationships, and overall quality of life.


Substance Abuse

Substance abuse therapy helps identify the underlying reasons for abuse and chart a recovery plan.

Substance abuse is defined as the continuous, excessive, and dangerous use of drugs or alcohol, resulting in various negative outcomes. It is distinguished by losing control over consumption, despite being aware of the negative impacts on physical health, emotional well-being, and social functioning.

Treatment options such as counseling, support groups, and medication are designed to assist individuals in uncovering the reasons driving their substance abuse, achieving recovery, and increasing their quality of life.

What are the Symptoms of Substance Abuse?

Sudden and significant changes in behavior, mood, or personality.

Neglecting responsibilities at work, school, or home due to substance use.

Engaging in secretive or deceptive behavior to hide substance use.

Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when attempting to quit or reduce substance use.

Increased tolerance levels requiring larger amounts to achieve the same effect.

Experiencing frequent and unexplained financial difficulties.

Neglecting personal hygiene and appearance.

Physical signs such as bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, or tremors.

These signs can vary depending on the individual and the substance being abused. If you are struggling with substance abuse or know someone who is, professional support is just a phone call away.
