Knowing the signs and symptoms of drug abuse is key to help an individual struggling with addiction to get help and achieve sobriety. Abused drugs range from over-the-counter cold remedies to cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamines. Symptoms of abuse vary widely between different drugs. One thing they all have in common: an inability to manage life once addiction takes hold.
The addiction assessment we use is a biopsychosocial evaluation and assessment. This type of drug and alcohol assessment takes into account information from a person's biology, psychological make-up, and social interactions to assess the severity of an individual's addiction.
Our assessment can be taken for yourself or for someone you know.
Overcoming drug addiction can be difficult. In some cases, using medication is not an option; rather, therapy can be a superior option. Different drug treatment centers offer varied methods of addiction assistance. Despite these varying philosophies on the best approach to drug treatment, they all have one thing in common - to give addicts and alcoholics the tools needed to survive in mainstream society without turning to mood-altering chemicals.
