What are substance use disorders?

Substance use disorder describes an inability to control the use of illegal drugs, prescription medications, or alcohol. The uncontrollable urge to use these substances results from changes that occur in your brain due to drug or alcohol misuse.

When you have a substance use disorder, you continue to use substances regardless of consequences like legal troubles, health problems, and a reduced quality of life. Substance use can distort your thinking and judgment and interfere with your ability to take care of yourself.

Many people with a substance use disorder also experience other mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, and Bipolar disorder.

Recovery Psychiatric Services provides outpatient recovery services for adults and teens who are ready to overcome their dependence on drugs or alcohol. The medical team offers solutions to help you safely detox from alcohol or drugs and achieve long-term sobriety.

When should I seek treatment for substance use disorders?

Schedule a consultation at Recovery Psychiatric Services if you’re unable to quit using drugs or alcohol. The team can address addictions to:

  • Alcohol
  • Marijuana
  • Opioids
  • Sedatives
  • Hallucinogens
  • Nicotine and tobacco
  • Cocaine and other stimulants

Quitting these substances on your own can be difficult due to the physical withdrawal symptoms you might experience. These symptoms can include nausea, dizziness, pain, and intense cravings for drugs or alcohol.

The medical team provides in-depth evaluations of your health and circumstances to learn more about your recovery needs. They can also screen for anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders that coexist with substance use disorders.

What is involved in recovery from substance use disorders?

Recovery Psychiatric Services provides customized recovery programs for individuals with a substance use disorder. Recovery programs often use a combination of medications and psychiatric therapy to help you quit using drugs or alcohol for good.


Medications can help you detox from drugs and alcohol with less cravings and few withdrawal symptoms. You may also need medications to manage symptoms of anxiety or depression.


Psychotherapeutic models such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) help you understand your negative thoughts and behaviors. Ongoing therapy sessions ensure you have the resources you need to stay sober and lead a productive life.

The team may also recommend community support groups you can join to connect with others in recovery.
