Drug Counseling Services

drug counseling

Living with a substance use disorder or a drug addiction can take a huge toll, not only physically, but mentally as well. The emotional effects of drug dependency can impact your mood, your behavior, and your relationships.

In fact, substance use disorders are often co-occurring with other mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder. Seeking out drug abuse counseling services and the expertise of a mental health professional can not only help you to recover from your addiction, but can help you immensely with the many emotional side effects and co-occurring diagnoses that often come along with substance abuse.

Drug addiction disorders are more common than one might think. According to the National Institutes of Health, 10% of adults in the United States will struggle with a drug use disorder during their lifetime, and the majority of them will not seek help or treatment. Don’t let the fear of seeking help keep you from getting the drug counseling treatment you need.

If you or a loved one is in need of drug counseling to help work through an addiction, REACH Behavioral Health can help you to take the next step to get started on your journey toward healing. Remember that you are not alone, and there are effective resources and treatment methods available to help you return to a life without drug addiction.

What Are the Signs of Drug Addiction?

Drug addiction can affect everyone in different ways. But when the effects of substance abuse begin to impact your day-to-day life, it may be time to seek the help of a professional to begin treatment.

Although everyone is affected differently, common signs of a drug addiction to look out for include:

  • Changes in personality, such as irritability, agitation, or a lack of motivation
  • An increase in risk-taking behavior
  • Changes in activities, hobbies, and friend groups
  • Physical changes, including bloodshot eyes, tremors, slurred speech, or frequent bloody noses
  • A presence of withdrawal symptoms, including shakiness, sweating, dizziness, nausea, or feelings of depression
  • A noticeable change in sleep patterns and/or appetite
  • A sudden change in finances or a sudden need for additional funds
  • Changes in or a disregard for relationships with friends, family, and colleagues
