Substance use disorder (SUD) is considered a mental disorder or chronic medical condition. It affects a person’s brain and behavior and can lead to an inability for the person to control their use of substances such as illicit drugs, alcohol, or prescription medications. Symptoms can range from moderate to severe, with addiction and physical dependency being the most severe form of SUDs. We understand that accepting and admitting that you have an addiction and asking for help is a very difficult, but necessary, beginning step in your recovery process.
