Alcohol & Substance Abuse

We're here to be your support system, so you never have to fight the battle alone.

Alcohol Use Disorders

Do you find yourself drinking more often or for longer periods of time? Do you drink too much alcohol to the point that it interferes with your work, family life, or social life? If this is happening to you, chances are you might be struggling with an alcohol use disorder (AUD). 

Alcohol abuse can lead to many problems including accidents, acute medical conditions, chronic diseases, mental health issues, social conflicts, and more. It is important to understand that there are different degrees of alcoholism and not everyone who drinks excessively has an AUD. 

  • Alcohol Abuse involves occasional and excessive bouts of drinking that can lead to poor decisions or risky behavior. Those who abuse alcohol are less likely to experience withdrawal symptoms when they don’t drink and can function normally without alcohol.
  • Alcohol Addiction is marked by a dependence on alcohol to get through the day. Those struggling with alcoholism are more likely to develop a tolerance, have little control over how much they consume, and consume alcohol frequently in order to evade withdrawal symptoms.  

Substance Abuse

The regular use of and dependence on psychoactive substances or medications to an extent that causes physical or mental harm is known as substance abuse. For some, the condition can lead to poor decision-making that results in physically hazardous situations, substance-related legal problems, and recurrent social problems.
