Substance Abuse Q & A

What is substance abuse?

Substance abuse, also known as drug abuse, is the misuse of various drugs or substances, causing social, emotional, and physical problems and distress. People misuse both legal and illegal drugs, including:

  • Alcohol
  • Prescription medications such as opioids, stimulants, and anxiety medication
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Heroin

Substance abuse isn’t the same as drug addiction. People with a substance abuse problem can change their behavior to stop using the drug or alcohol. Addiction, on the other hand, is a disease that requires medical intervention and management. 

What are the symptoms of substance abuse?

Substance abuse may affect how you feel and behave. Some of the symptoms of a substance abuse problem include:

  • Withdrawal from friends and family
  • Problems at work
  • Not taking care of yourself
  • Rapid change in mood
  • Sleeping more or less
  • Spending an excessive amount of time looking for and using your drug
  • Craving the drug

Though not as serious as an addiction, you shouldn’t ignore a substance abuse problem. Substance abuse can turn into an addiction.

If you or someone you love is struggling with a substance abuse problem, the team at Drug, Alcohol, Mental Health Counseling & Evaluation Services, Inc. can help. The addiction and medical practice is open seven days a week from 5:30am-7pm. 

What happens during a substance abuse evaluation?

The team at Drug, Alcohol, Mental Health Counseling & Evaluation Services, Inc. takes an integrative approach to care, focusing on your overall health, not just your substance abuse problem. This approach allows them to create an effective treatment plan that promotes healing and well-being.

For substance abuse, the team conducts a comprehensive medical and psychiatric evaluation.

How is substance abuse treated?
