Treatment and Support for Problems arising from Alcohol and Drug Use
Whether it’s too many drinks at the bar, an illicit drug from a street dealer, or the misuse of a prescription, this behavior will – sooner or later – result in difficulties for you and your loved ones. Not only do they represent significant harm to your body and the potential for lethal and dangerous short and long term side effects. These drugs:
Weaken Your Ability to Cope With Stress – It’s why many people feel the need to go back to drugs and alcohol when they are stressed. Their body has no idea how to deal with stress otherwise, and like a muscle, stress coping needs to be exercised.
Change Your Brain/Body Chemistry – Beyond dependency, these drugs can actually change your mind and body, and cause you to think differently, experience depression or sexual dysfunction, and go through many different chemical and emotional changes.
Hurt Your Life – Drugs and alcohol are expensive. They’re time consuming. They are often illegal. They can cause you to make terrible life decisions and hurt your relationships, your work, and your finances.
Yes, drugs and alcohol can cause serious physical health problems. But drug and alcohol use typically is worse than that. Prolonged use or misuse will lead to negative life changes and significant emotional distress.
