    Substance Use Counseling

    More often than not, substance addictions start with experimental use of a drug in social situations. And for some people, the substance use becomes more frequent. As time passes, a person may feel the need to use more of a substance to get their desired high, and soon a person may need the substance to simply feel “good.”

    Substance addiction symptoms and behaviors include, among others:

    • Feeling the need to use the substance regularly, which can be daily or multiple times a day
    • Having intense urges for the substance
    • Over time, needing more of the substance to get the same effect
    • Making certain that you maintain a supply of the substance
    • Not meeting obligations and work responsibilities
    • Doing things you wouldn’t normally do to get the substance, such as stealing
    • Focusing more and more time and energy on getting and using the substance
    • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not using the substance
    • Failed attempts to quit using the substance

    If you can relate to any of the above symptoms or behaviors, it may be time to consider addiction counseling.
