Substance abuse is a tendency to abuse certain substances that may cause the patient harm or affect their function significantly, such as alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal drugs. Patients who struggle with substance abuse consume these substances frequently, often despite a strong desire to stop.
Substance abuse usually develops when a person begins using alcohol or a drug recreationally but then becomes addicted to the substance. Two main types of dependency can develop among substance abuse patients:
Physical dependence causes the patient to experience physical withdrawal symptoms unless they take the drug, while psychological dependency causes emotional withdrawal symptoms when the patient stops taking the drug.
New Hope Recovery House offers substance use disorder assessments to patients with suspected substance abuse problems. The purpose of this assessment is to evaluate the patient’s relationship with a specific substance to determine whether a substance abuse disorder exists. If the results of the assessment show that the patient does have a disorder, New Hope Recovery House can recommend treatment options.
New Hope Recovery House offers a variety of treatment services to help patients overcome substance abuse disorders. In the earliest phase of treatment, most patients will participate in a detoxification program to provide support while they eliminate the drug from their system and work toward sobriety. For patients with addictions to certain types of drugs, such as opioids, New Hope Recovery House may prescribe medication to help with detoxification. Patients in detoxification programs have 24-hour staff support available while they’re going through withdrawal.
New Hope Recovery House also offers a range of other services to patients during recovery, including:
Patients in addiction treatment at New Hope Recovery House will also have access to relapse prevention services. The purpose of relapse prevention is to help patients understand and avoid relapse after treatment ends.
