To give you a better idea of what you can expect from us, here’s a bit of a Q&A on substance abuse treatment with us here at Restoration Recovery. We’ll talk about what substance abuse is, when you should seek professional help, and how we can help at our clinic.
What qualifies as substance abuse?
Substance abuse is using illegal drugs or using alcohol, prescription medicine, or another legal substance improperly or too much. It isn’t necessarily an addiction, as the person may be able to stop or change the behavior, but it can become an addiction which is an actual disorder that prevents the person from stopping or changing the behavior even if it’s causing the person harm.
Alcohol, over-the-counter medicine, prescription meds, cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and tobacco products are common examples of substances people abuse. There are some common signs of substance abuse, like:
- Craving substance use
- Lacking interest in things you used to enjoy
- Spending more time alone
- Eating more or less than you used to
- Sleeping at bizarre hours
- Changing your friends a lot
- Not taking care of yourself anymore
- Having problems with family or at work
- Quickly changing from feeling good to bad and bad to good
If you or someone you care about has some of the problems we listed, then the problem might be substance abuse or even substance use disorder. A professional will be able to tell you whether either of those is the problem. Professional care may be necessary.
