This is a vast topic. 30% of mental/emotional/behavioral health patients have some form of substance abuse issue. At Integrity Psychological & Counseling, we have experts in the area of substance abuse and recovery.
Substance abuse is a patterned use of a substance—a drug or alcohol that is harmful--in which the user consumes the substance in amounts or with methods neither approved nor supervised by medical professionals. Substance abuse/drug abuse is not limited to mood-altering or psycho-active drugs. Substance abuse often includes problems with impulse control and impulsive behavior. Substance abusers may be genetically predisposed to addiction or have found that drugs simply feel good whereas the pain of living feels bad. Substance abuse almost invariably destroys lives, hurts families and children, degrades physical and mental health, and negatively influences work and productivity. Counseling and recovery are the main forms of treatment.
