For Help with Substance Use Disorders

Substance Use Disorder or drug addiction is a complex disease that evolves over time. It begins with early experimentation of alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs either recreationally or as a perceived quick fix for depression, sadness, loneliness, and other emotional or life challenges. Too often early use extends to regular use which can lead to dependence and addiction. Treatment options are available and recovery is possible.
