Addiction Counseling Arizona
Substance use disorder is a chronic disease much like heart disease or diabetes. It can be successfully managed with the ability to regain a healthy and productive life. Treatment is life-saving and requires commitment from the person with substance use disorder. Physicians who specialize in substance-abuse treatment are a good place to start. They can help them get through withdrawal and cope with cravings as well as direct them to ongoing supportive care that will address underlying issues contributing to the disease such as feelings of low self-worth, boredom, bad home life, associating with people who abuse drugs.
