Drug and Alcohol Counseling
More often than not, drug and alcohol addictions start with the experimental use of a drug or alcohol in social situations. And for some people, their drug/alcohol use becomes more frequent. As time passes, a person may feel the need to use more of a drug/alcohol to get their desired high, and soon a person may need the drug/alcohol to simply feel “good.”
Drug and alcohol addiction symptoms and behaviors include, among others:
- Feeling the need to use the alcohol or substance regularly, which can be daily or multiple times a day
- Having intense urges for the alcohol or substance
- Over time, needing more of the alcohol or substance to get the same effect
- Being certain that you maintain a supply of the alcohol or substance
- Not meeting obligations and work responsibilities
- Doing things you wouldn’t normally do to get the alcohol or substance , such as stealing or lying
- Focusing more and more time and energy on getting and using the alcohol or substance
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not using the alcohol or substance
- Failed attempts to quit using the alcohol or substance
