Substance Abuse

Substance abuse is a pattern of substance (drug) use that causes significant problems or distress, such as failure to attend work or school, substance use in dangerous situations (driving a car), substance-related legal problems, or continued substance use that interferes with friendships and/or family relationships.

Alcohol and tobacco are two of the most often abused substances, but others, like street drugs, prescription drugs, or inhalants are also common. If you feel you have a problem with substance abuse, don’t be ashamed. You are certainly not alone. Standing up to your addiction means admitting you can use some help – and that’s OK.
