Addiction & Substance Abuse
Is Substance Abuse Counseling Right For Me?
How do I know if I need substance abuse counseling? When does substance use qualify as substance abuse? Binge-drinking on the weekend… popping a few pills to get by… When you use substances in place of healthier coping skills, you are abusing a substance. And when you are unable to overcome addictive and compulsive self-destructive urges such as drinking, taking drugs, gambling, exercising, shopping, gaming or engaging in self-destructive sexual behavior, you’re headed down the self-destructive road to addiction.
Substance abuse transforms into addiction when the user develops a physiological and psychological dependence on the drug or behavior. If you find yourself needing more and more to get what the high you’re looking for, you might be experiencing addiciton.
Withdrawal symptoms are also a sure sign of addiction. If you feel awful when you quit smoking, drinking, drugging … or doing anything else compulsively, you may have an addiciton.
Recovery from substance abuse and addiction is a life-long journey—and it may be the hardest thing you ever do—but it’s worth it! Lifeologie can help you get your life back!
