What Are the Signs of Substance Use Disorder?

Ssubstance use disorders typically manifest as an inability to control the use of a mind-altering substance, regardless of what the substance may be doing to your health or relationships. Some signs of substance use disorder include:

  • A desire to stop using the substances but being unable to do so for a prolonged period
  • Using substances to address other mental or physical problems, even if the substance is doing more harm than good
  • Moving from using substances to feel good, to using substances to feel normal or functional
  • Sacrificing important things like work, school, relationships, or physical health to continue using a substance
  • Engaging in risky behaviors in order to obtain a substance
  • Lying about substance use to family or friends

There are many other signs of substance use disorder. At Vertical Treatment Centers in Clinton, SC, we create personalized treatment plans to help address our patient’s core issues and traumas.

If left untreated, alcohol addiction can alter how the brain functions and result in life-long health issues. Finding the ideal treatment plan for the patient is the first step to recovery. At Vertical Treatment Centers, our staff will work with you to create a treatment strategy that tackles the root of your battle with alcohol. We provide outpatient therapy for alcohol addiction. We are not a detox facility.

Meth Addiction Treatment

Methamphetamine is considered one of the hardest substances to quit. Meth alters the way the brain’s reward circuits function, causing the person using meth to have a constant need to continue using. Our treatment programs use a combination of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and counseling to enable our patients to live a life free of meth.

Opioids, which include drugs like heroin, morphine, oxycodone, fentanyl, and more, are incredibly addictive. In addition to behavioral health therapy, we offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT), including Suboxone® and Sublocade® treatment programs, for persons suffering from opioid addiction.
