Common questions that my patients ask:

IS IT SUBSTANCE ABUSE OR ADDICTION?

Substance abuse normally starts when someone starts to use substances to cope with negative or uncomfortable feelings, such as anxiety or depression. If the substance abuse progresses it can lead to becoming dependent on substances in order to feel normal and cope with life stressors. Usually at this time people notice they start craving substances, and this is normally a sign of addiction. That’s why it’s so important to get substance abuse counseling now before it progresses to addiction.
