Substance Abuse Treatment
Substance abuse is the use of any prescription or non-prescription drug that alters the mind or the mood. It also includes excessive alcohol use, abuse of prescription drugs, or ingestion of any legal solvent not intended for recreational purposes. Furthermore, misuse of any narcotic, anti-depressant or alcoholic beverage can disrupt your daily sleep schedule. An overdose of drugs, especially when mixed with alcohol, could cause blood pressure or heart problems, seizures, a coma, or even death.
Signs You Are Addicted
If you are not sure if you suffer from substance abuse but suspect that you could be addicted to drugs or alcohol, we will show you the signs. The New Creation staff usually helps you determine your own course of recovery, but we also provide a list of criteria to follow.
Signs you are addicted to drugs or alcohol include as follows:
- Failure to bathe and groom yourself
Substance abuse also has negative consequences on society. For instance, it leads to homelessness, poverty or spread of diseases. Misuse of alcohol and drugs has an effect on crime rates, too. Additionally, it typically aggravates mental health symptoms.
Sources of Help for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues
Finding Christian substance abuse treatment programs alone is challenging enough with or without struggling with mental health issues. Misuse of drugs and alcohol can disrupt your life especially when you use so often your body has developed a chemical dependency on your substance of choice.
Needing a fix or the calming feeling of controlled substances might seem like a way to unwind and reduce stress at first. However, the effect is only temporary. If you want relief from anxiety, loneliness, depression or other symptoms, substance abuse is not the answer.
If you do think you might have a mental health disorder in addition to being prone to substance abuse, New Creation will offer you the help and compassion you need. For instance, we offer Christian dual diagnosis treatment tracks for you if you are diagnosed with bipolar, schizophrenia or anxiety disorder. Moreover, we help who deal with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder who also might misuse drugs or alcohol.
