Our devoted team of qualified health care workers are prepared to treat a wide range of substance related disorders, generally meaning any substance (be it alcohol or drugs) that is taken in patterns of dangerous amounts, or with methods that are harmful to the user or others.
Some of the drugs most often associated with this term include alcohol, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, methamphetamines, MDMA/Ecstasy, ketamine, inhalants and prescription drugs.
Use of these drugs may lead to criminal issues in addition to possible physical, social, and psychological harm – leading to the necessity for treatment intervention. Long-term personality changes may occur in users as well, which is why family members often feel threatened and struggle to find support. Substance abuse is affecting an estimated 120 million users of hard drugs such as cocaine, heroin, and other synthetic drugs.
Some people can have strong drug cravings even after they have not used the drug for a long period of time, which necessitates external treatment options.
Substance-related disorders, including both substance dependence and substance abuse, can lead to large societal problems. It is found to be greatest in individuals aged 18–25, with a higher likelihood occurring in men compared to women, and urban residents compared to rural residents.
Over 50% of individuals with substance-related disorders will often have a “dual diagnosis,” where they are diagnosed with the substance abuse, as well as a psychiatric diagnosis, the most common being major depression, personality disorder, anxiety disorders, and dysthymia. This necessitates the need for mental health treatment in conjunction with addiction recovery, in order to treat concurrent mental health issues.
