What We Treat

1. Alcohol Use Disorder

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is defined as, “a medical condition characterized by an impaired ability to stop or control alcohol use despite

adverse social, occupational, or health consequences".

ALCOHOL AdobeStock_320034055.jpeg

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism states that drinking at an early age, genetics and family history of alcohol problems, and mental health conditions, including trauma, increase the risk of an individual developing alcohol use disorder. 

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) is used by healthcare professionals to assess whether a person has AUD as well as to determine the severity of the disorder. 

Signs of Alcohol Use Disorder include:

  • The inability to stop or control drinking

  • Failed attempts at cutting down or stopping alcohol all together

  • Becoming sick or experiencing withdrawal as a result of not consuming alcohol

  • Drinking, or withdrawals from alcohol, often interfere with ones ability to take care of themselves, or family, and/or job and school performance

  • Continued drinking despite the troubles alcohol was causing with friends or family

  • Loss of interest in activities that were once important

  • Involvement in high-risk and dangerous situations (i.e., driving while intoxicated, having unprotected sex or involvement in illegal activities)

  • Continued drinking despite increased depression, anxiety and/or health problems

  • Needing to drink much more than usual to achieve the same desired effect

  • When the effects of alcohol wear off, trouble sleeping, shakiness, restlessness, nausea, sweating, racing heart, and/or seizure occur.

2. Substance Use Disorder

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Substance Use Disorder, commonly referred to as Addiction, is defined as, “a chronic, relapsing disorder characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use despite adverse consequences. It is considered a brain disorder, because it

involves functional changes to brain circuits involved in reward, stress, and self-control. Those changes may last a long time after a person has stopped taking drugs.” 

The NIDA states, “The initial decision to take drugs is typically voluntary. But with continued use, a person's ability to exert self-control can become seriously impaired. This impairment in self-control is the hallmark of addiction.”

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) states that risk factors (the greater the chance that taking drugs will lead to addiction) include, aggressive behavior in childhood, lack of parental supervision, low peer refusal skills, drug experimentation, availability of drugs at school, community poverty, as well as biological factors (i.e., genes, mental health disorders, gender, and ethnicity).
