Therapy for Substance Abuse

Substance abuse is the intentional misuse of substances (e.g., alcohol, prescription drugs, OTC medications, recreational and street drugs, household chemicals). This may include binge drinking or taking twice the prescribed dose of painkillers, for substances considered illegal and/or extremely detrimental to well-being, using even once may be considered substance abuse. Because of the addiction potential for many substances, abuse often leads to addiction. Working with a therapist who specializes in substance abuse may help you overcome mental health challenges linked to substance abuse.
