SUBSTANCE USE SERVICES
Addiction is treatable.
Recovery from drug and alcohol problems starts with a call or an email.
Anyone can get addicted.
People from all backgrounds can experience addiction. Addiction doesn’t care how old you are, how much money you make, or the color of your skin; it has no bias.
Is it affecting daily life?
When drugs or alcohol are used so often that they have significant negative effects on your life, this is called a substance use disorder.*
Has substance use led to you or someone you know...
- Being out of work and couch surfing?
- Doing poorly in school?
- Crashing a car?
- Coping with mental illness by self-medicating?
- Risking losing custody of children?
Help is available.
