Addiction is a serious concern no matter what the type. However, substance abuse disorder, or drug addiction, can be one of the most dangerous kinds of behavioral health issues. The risks associated with this condition can be life-threatening, so it’s crucial that you have a qualified and supportive team of experts on your side. At Willapa Behavioral Health & Wellness, we specialize in helping clients with a wide variety of substance abuse issues.

How Do You Know if You Have a Substance Abuse Disorder?

Addiction to any type of drug may be difficult to recognize on your own. However, there are warning signs that may point to a substance abuse problem. These can include:

  • Inability to resist or stop the use of a drug
  • Developing signs of physical dependence, such as withdrawal symptoms
  • Missing school, work, or social engagements to use a drug
  • Developing a tolerance to a substance, resulting in the need for an increased dose
  • Ignoring financial responsibilities to pay for drug use
  • Planning for the next time you will engage in drug use

Those who are dealing with drug addiction often isolate themselves from friends and family as well. This is especially true if loved ones voice their concerns. A breakdown in your relationships can be a sign of a substance abuse disorder.

Can You Treat Drug Addiction on Your Own?

It is important to understand that substance abuse is a serious problem. It takes a large support system to overcome addiction in most cases. Without the right approach toward recovery, those affected by it are at risk for health complications and relapse, both of which can result in life-threatening situations.

Never attempt to detox from a drug on your own without the help of a caring and qualified medical professional. The providers and team members at our Long Beach office are equipped to handle these unique situations safely so clients can minimize risks and maximize success.
